Input/Output Options

clobber

  • allow '>' to truncate, and '»' to create files
  • if unset these redirections will fail with an error

correct

  • try to correct the spelling of commands

correct_all

  • try to correct every word
  • this can be dangerous with some commands (e.g. mv)

ignoreeof

  • this will ignore pressing ^D

rm_star_silent

  • do not query the user before execing 'rm *' or 'rm path/*'

rm_star_wait

  • like 'rm_star_silent' but wait ten seconds instead of querying

dvorak

  • 'correct{,_all}' expect errors that would happen on dvorak keyboards.

short_loops

  • allow short loop forms:
for file in *.pdf; lp ${file}

sun_keyboard_hack

  • if a line ends with a backquote, and there are an odd number of backquotes on the line, ignore the trailing backquote. this is useful on some keyboards where the return key is too small, and the backquote key lies annoyingly close to it. ;-)
