One of the main features of the grml system is the zsh (Z shell). The zsh is the default interactive shell of the grml system. On this webpage you will find information regarding the zsh on grml.
The grml-zsh-refcard provides a short overview of defined aliases, functions and settings of zsh on the grml system. Download it, print it and improve your zsh skills!

grmlzshrc(5) is a manpage providing detailled information about grml's zsh configuration. On the grml system it is available offline via 'man grmlzshrc'. An online version is available as well:
- grmlzshrc.html (~50kB)
You do not have to use grml/Debian to use grml's zsh configuration. Just retrieve and install the configuration files in your home directory via executing for example:
# IMPORTANT: please note that you might override an existing # configuration file in the current working directory! => wget -O .zshrc http://git.grml.org/f/grml-etc-core/etc/zsh/zshrc # Optionally also grab the user configration: # wget -O .zshrc.local http://git.grml.org/f/grml-etc-core/etc/skel/.zshrc
zsh-lovers is a small project which tries to collect tips, tricks and examples for the Z shell. Authors of the zsh-lovers manual page are Christian 'strcat' Schneider, Matthias Kopfermann and Michael Prokop.
Main part of zsh-lovers is the manual page which is available in several formats:
Notice: If you would like to have zsh-lovers on your Debian system add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list (run 'apt-get update && apt-get install zsh-lovers'):
