Re: setopt and alias questions

Please stop using <zsh-users@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>.  The mailing list address is
now <zsh-users@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>.  Forwarding through the old address won't
work forever.  Your Mail-Followup-To: header should be fixed, too.

Yes:  setopt kshoptionprint

However, this produces all sorts of lovely double-negatives like

noalwayslastprompt    off
noautolist            off
noautomenu            off
nolistambiguous       off
nolistbeep            off
nolisttypes           off

Yes.  This was done so that the output of "setopt" with no args would not
change radically from 3.0.x to 3.1.x.  Of course, I then disagreed (and
still do) with the decision to turn so many options "on" by default.

} 	2) does zsh not support tracking or exporting of aliases?

Zsh does not export aliases.  I don't know what you mean by "tracking."
