Well, now that I checked it, I couldn't find explanation for -/
option either. It seems that the info manual of my zsh 3.1.2(-8,
this is from the Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 distribution) is pretty
Document Edition 2.1.10, last updated 15 October 1996, of `The Z Shell
Guide', for zsh, Version 3.0.1.

I hope there will be an updated version because it seems that
there are new interesting features in latest zsh versions that I
am not aware of.

Ok. Count me as interested in such a feature :)

Thanks for the information,
