What is "tll"
=============
tll is a very minimal application launcher for Linux based systems.

If you are on Mac try QuickSilver_, on Windows try Launchy_ or SlickRun_.

============
Just place `tll` somewhere in your path and edit `~/.tllrc`.

=======
Assign a keystroke to invoke it [#]_ and you're done.

`tll` has a simple history, hit <UP-ARROW> or <DOWN-ARROW> to scroll the
history.

Configuration File
==================
`$HOME/.tllrc` has the following syntax:
::
    
    # tll Aliases

    www = firefox

    oo = soffice
    im = pidgin
