Overview

Ronin Shell

This is an experimental object-oriented command shell, in the same vein as rush
(http://rush.heroku.com/) or Windows “PowerShell”.

Plans

The stuff I definitely want to implement:

  • Proper pty
  • Job control
  • Traditional stdio-based command pipelining.

Experimental Stuff

Output from regular system commands are captured automatically, _ will be an
IO opened to the last command’s STDOUT, and _err, the last command’s
STDERR.
