NAME

zsh-lovers - tips, tricks and examples for the Z shell  

SYNOPSIS

Just read it. ;-)  

OVERVIEW

Whenever we look at the zsh manual we wonder why there are no examples
or those simply things in (shell) life. The zsh contains many features,
but there was no manpage with some examples (like procmailex(5)).
That's why we wrote this manpage.  

Most of the tricks and one-liner come from the mailing lists zsh-users,
zsh-workers, google, newsgroups and from ourself. See section LINKS for
details.  

Note: This manpage (zsh-lovers(1)) is not an official part of the Z
shell! It's just a just for fun - manpage ;) For comments, bug reports
and feedback take a quick look at the section BUGS.
