8.248. zsh

Updated zsh packages that add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The zsh shell is a command interpreter which can be used as an interactive login shell and as a shell script command processor. Zsh resembles the ksh shell (the Korn shell), but includes many enhancements. Zsh supports command line editing, built-in spelling correction, programmable command completion, shell functions (with autoloading), a history mechanism, and more.


This update adds the ${NAME:OFFSET:LENGTH} substitution to zsh, which enables users to use the syntax ${NAME:OFFSET:LENGTH} to display a substring.
Users of zsh are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
