The fish syntax is very, very small. It can be picked up in just a few minutes by someon who can already program. Since almost all syntax errors result in displaying a help page describing the syntax of the command that was misused, people who already know how to use a shell should be able to wing it.

At least, I hope that is the case.

Looks good, I was just thinking about the need for a more user friendly shell the other day. Wonder how long before a gentoo e-build shows up...

Just compiled the 1.9.1 release on my laptop. Make test failed test3 because fish is not in my PATH. a change to ../fish seemed to work.

Also, your e-mail address on the fish home page doesn't seem to be working that well, keeps saying:

Message cannot be accepted, virus found (in reply to end of DATA command

Don't think yahoo is auto sending a virus, but I could be wrong ;-)

Keep up the good work,

-Eli

Oops. That address has been acting up lately, marking lots of things as spam and what not. You can try using this address: liljencrantz at gmail dot com.

I'll start working on a real, good test suite after I finish the syntax additions described in the article.

Probably about 6 1/2 months, since I just came across this in an article in some Linux magazine and added it.
