Shell resembling the Korn shell

'Zsh' is a *NIX command interpreter (shell) which of all the standard shells most resembles the Korn shell (ksh). It includes enhancements of many types, notably in the command-line editor, options for customising its behaviour, filename globbing, features to make C-shell (csh) users feel more at home and extra features drawn from tcsh.
