Gsh 0.0.12 - Graphical shell is released.

Mar 20, 1999, 00:43 (0 Talkback[s])

Vaughn Cato writes:

Gsh is designed to do two things:

1) be a comfortable environment for people who are already accustomed to using a Unix shell.
2) make operations that are difficult or awkward with a normal shell easier by having the shell take advantage of a graphical environment.

Some of the features include:

  • context sensitive popup menu that gives you a list of commands based on what is currently selected.
  • user confurable menu for commonly used commands.
  • the ability to run multiple commands simultaneously and keep the output separate.
  • special colors that differentiate commands from output; running commands from completed commands; etc.

This is the first development release of Gsh. It is being developed under Linux, but has also been tested to some extent under Irix. I am interested in making it usable under any Unix-like system. Gsh is distributed under the GPL.
