    GB> it's for zsh, which has a prog interface for cmdline cmds ...

That kind of feature is something I was looking for for a long time,
I met it with several non-UNIX command line interpreters,
but not yet with a UNIX shell.

It just installed my Linux-slackware-zsh-2.4.306,
stepped through the (GNU-)info file, ...,
unpacked the sources of zsh-2.6.beta12,
printed intro.ms
(got lots of a special kind of warning)

    intro.ms:78: warning: missing number
    intro.ms:100: warning: missing number
    intro.ms:119: warning: missing number
    intro.ms:134: warning: missing number
    intro.ms:142: warning: missing number
    intro.ms:149: warning: missing number
    intro.ms:179: warning: missing number
    intro.ms:191: warning: missing number

and I think I information for now,
but I'm interested in your innd interface.

Thank's a lot for pointing me to zsh!
