Zsh is the Swiss Army knife of shells. It combines the most popular
features of every other shell, and then lets you customize every
inch of it. Users of bourne-style and C-style shells will feel at
home in it.
Zsh does intelligent completion, spell-checking, has a rich syntax
for precise globbing, and is fully extensible through plugin
To fire up the zsh completion system, type the following commands:
$ autoload -U compinstall
$ compinstall
WWW: https://www.zsh.org/
- DEBUG: off
- DOCS: on
- ETCDIR: off
- GDBM: off
- MEM: off
- PCRE: off
- STATIC: off
By default, zsh looks for system-wide defaults in
If you previously set up /etc/zprofile, /etc/zshenv, etc.,
either move them to /usr/local/etc or rebuild zsh with the
ETCDIR option enabled.
