Thanks Peter, I can't change all the installation, I did try the -Uz zfinit
but then it failed with zfparams: function not defined.

I may be out of luck until they install an updated copy here!

zfinit:42: command not found: compctl
zfinit:50: command not found: compctl
zfinit:51: command not found: compctl
zfinit:52: command not found: compctl
zfinit:53: command not found: compctl
zfinit:58: command not found: compctl
zfinit:67: command not found: compctl

I can still write the scripts to run on my system but will have to wait for
a new version of zsh here before I can write production scripts

Thanks for the answer!
