Bash 2.03 -- 19 février 1999, 1Mo (.tar.gz)
Documentation -- 19 féfrier 1999, 1Mo (.tar.gz)
Bash is an sh-compatible command language interpreter that executes commands read from the standard input or from a file. Bash also incorporates useful features from the Korn and C shells (ksh and csh). Bash is intended to be a conformant implementation of the IEEE POSIX Shell and Tools specification (IEEE Working Group 1003.2).
esh 0.7 -- 19 février 1999
esh is a new Unix shell, written completely from scratch. It features really tiny size and great flexibility and programmability, thanks to a real Lisp-like programming language at the core.
Changes: "run" and "run-simple" now return the exit status of the pipeline if the job was launched in the foreground, "chop!" and "chop-nl!" now return their arguments, added "begin-last", which is like the "begin" in Scheme, and added the "<" and ">" commands.
rc 1.6 -- 28 mai 1999, (.tar.gz)
rc est un interpréteur de commandes et un langage de programmation similaire à sh. IL est basé sur le shell Plan 9 d'AT&T du même nom. Ce shell offre une syntaxe de style C (plus que le C shell), et un puissant mécanisme de manipulation de variables. IL est raisonnablement petit et raisonnablement rapide, particulièrement lorsqu'il est comparé aux shells contemporains. Son usage est conçu pour être interactif, mais le langage lui-même convient bien aux scripts.
Version stable 3.0.7 -- 19 octobre 1999, 1144ko (.tar.gz)
Version développement 3.1.6 -- 1 août 1999, 1273ko (.tar.gz)
Zsh is a shell designed for interactive use, although it is also a powerful scripting language. More information can be found on the "Zsh Web Pages" sites.
Zsh is a shell designed for interactive use, although it is also a powerful scripting language. Many of the useful features of bash, ksh, and tcsh were incorporated into zsh; many original features were added. The introductory document details some of the unique features of zsh. It assumes basic knowledge of the standard UNIX shells; the intent is to show a reader already familiar with one of the other major shells what makes zsh more useful or more powerful. This document is not at all comprehensive; read the manual entry for a description of the shell that is complete and concise, although somewhat overwhelming and devoid of examples.
Eterm 0.8.9 -- 26 avril 1999 Eterm is a vt102 terminal emulator intended as a replacement for xterm. It is designed with a Freedom of Choice philosophy, leaving as much power, flexibility, and freedom as possible in the hands of the user. It is designed to look good and work well, but takes a feature-rich approach rather than one of minimalism. Current features include color support, background images (all Imlib-supported formats, which includes JPG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and just about everything else), theme support, and pseudo-transparency. Future plans include image-mapped scrollbar/menubar, thread support, Enlightenment IPC support, tabbed workspaces, and more. Changes: This release includes several major bugfixes, mouse wheel support, speedups, more run-time configurability, improved borderless window support, and as always, lots more options, including saving current settings, NeXT-style scrollbars (changeable on the fly), and more.
rxvt 2.6.PRE2 -- 31 janvier 1999
Rxvt is an 8-bit clean, colour xterm replacement that uses significantly less memory than a conventional xterm, mostly since it doesn't support toolkit configurability or Tek graphics, but also since features can be removed at compile-time to reflect your needs.
