DESCRIPTION

     C-Shell is a replacement for the AmigaDOS command line interface.
     Many builtin Unix-like commands, very fast script language, file-
     name completion, command-name completion, comfortable command line
     editing, pattern matching, AUX: mode, object oriented file classes,
     abbreviation of internal and external commands.  Supports multiple
     users.

     C-Shell is easy to install and to use.  Online help for all
     commands, functions and various subjects.  ARP-free!

NEW FEATURES

     Changes since version 5.35 (summary):

      - Supports MultiUser (shows current user in titlebar).
      - Builtin command "chmod" (protect) allows setting of
         user/group/others bits in a UNIX-like fashion.
      - New builtin commands "chgrp" and "chown".
      - Fixed bugs in builtin commands "path", "rm", "rehash".
      - Builtin command "diskchange" allows multiple drive names.
      - New builtin function @age_mins(), modifications to @age().
      - Now requesters appear on same screen as CSH's window.
      - New meaning for builtin variable "_abbrev", now ALL commands
         (even those in the DOS search path) can be abbreviated --
         not only builltin commands.
      - Fixed layout bug in "dir -k" and "dir -i" (classes).
      - Builtin command "dir" supports UID/GID and group/others bits.
      - No requester "please insert volume ..." when you press return
         and your current directory is on an "unmounted" volume
         (eg, a removed floppy disk).
      - New meaning for "dir -z" and builtin variable "_dirformat".
      - Source code now "indent" clean.
         (some warnings on first run, but no errors)
      - Builtin command "qsort" allows case-sensitive sorting.
      - Various changes/enhancements to existing commands.
      - Miscellaneous bug fixes.
