    Solved CSH prompt customization

    As this question is regarding a package in the base system, this seemed like the best place to ask. If not, just recomend a new place to ask and I'll move it there. I'm attempting to migrate from ZSH to CSH and the configuration is proving to be a bit difficult. In ZSH, I have these lines...

    Solved Perplexing behavior of shell when trying to loop over input

    I created a script using zsh. One version of the script looks like the following. It correctly loops over all three lines of input and prints what would happen, sleeping 5 seconds after each print #!/usr/bin/env zsh while IFS= read -r snap ; do fs="$( echo "$snap" | cut -d@ -f1 )" echo...

    I'm on FreeBSD 13, and I don't know how to disable "bracketed paste". I already tried with inputrc (set enable-bracketed-paste off) and it does not work. I switched to zsh and it is still there, active.

    jails How do I "setenv PATH" in a jail, preferably using zsh?

    If I execute the command: setenv PATH "/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/root/bin:/root/.cargo/bin" after going into the jail by "jexec 1", it would work. However, I'd like to make it sticky. I tried many ways but nothing works. Further, preferably, I'd like to do...

    Solved can we say that FreeBSD adopts newest technology?

    Well, I know FreeBSD developers are trying integrate OpenZFS into FreeBSD. So we can say FreeBSD adopts new technologies. But there are old ones like the shells in the base system are only sh, csh, and tcsh. I know FreeBSD can't adopt fish and bash because of GPL license. However, zsh and ksh...

    Solved zsh - caveats?

    So I'm reading the zsh introductory documentation here, and I'm wondering why it's not included in the base FreeBSD distribution, like, why it's not already on my system... It seems way awesomer, way cleaner, and overall, much better than tcsh... But maybe it's not... And maybe you can tell...

    Shell Share your .zshrc file

    I like the way how tcsh works, but it is outdated a little bit (only 1 update since 2012), also some nice features are available in zsh, like suggesting flags and other completions for cli and not only cli apps… But some of its features are distracting and annoying IMHO. I didn't find any...
