Thanks for showing me the "zsh way" (very cool!)...
You are right about the "here document" issue. When I enter a
command that has one, like so:
... and then inspect my .zsh_history file, I see:
This is not consistent with what the perl version currently looks for.
It thinks a single terminating slash should become ';' in the new
single line version of the command it wants to generate. For the perl
zsh_cook_history implementation to work, there needs to be special
'<<' handling that triggers an exception to the normal handling of the
terminating '\'. Without that extra logic, it results in this single
line as output (which is wrong):
But maybe the zsh version of zsh_cook_history could be made to handle
it properly with a tweak to (z), as you alluded to previously... At
the moment, it's results are similarly not correct:
cat << EOF ; one ; two ; EOF
Because I think the zsh way is better than the perl way, and because
this issue does not really affect my intended use of zsh_cook_history,
I will not bother fixing my perl version but rather just use the zsh
version and be happy. Should (z) get updated in the future, then
that's a bonus!
As for INTERACTIVE_COMMENTS, I do have that option set, but I'm not
sure how to enter a multiline interactive comment, so unless there is
a method I'm unaware of to do that, it's a non-issue (single line
interactive comments seem OK in both zsh_cook_history implementations).
This will not work as the first line in a multiline w/ interactive
echo # comment \
For me, the '#' char effectively turns off the '\' char...
I'm very pleased with my new zsh_cook_history function (that you
provided) and I thank you for your help and expertise!
