I have tried out fish and I think it has many nice features and I will switch to
using it (from tcsh). However, I do find some unexpected behavior.
1) It would seem that the wildcards * and ? match everything if no matches are
found. That is if you type "ls *.txt" you get a listing of all txt files. However, if
no txt files exist, then you get a listing of all files. This behavior I find
completely baffling, and not particularly desirable.
2) I think the "open" command looks very nice, however, it does not work for
me. I'm using Mandriva 10.2 KDE. My .desktop file consists of one line:
It would appear that some additional configuration or something is needed to
get open to work on my computer. Actually, it would be really cool to be able to
double-click a file name in a directory listing and get that to open.
