     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 5.39 (summary):
      - Fixed error message for builtin command "copy": if no special
        error message was available, always the string "(no mem)" was
        output.
      - New placeholders "-1" and "-2" for builtin command "window".
      - Increased maximum value for window dimensions from 1023 to 32767
        for builtin command "window".
      - Environment variables LINES and COLUMNS override window bounds
        from Amiga console.device.
        (if env vars are set, no CSI sequence is sent)
      - Builtin command "mem" now shows size of largest available memory
        block.
      - Various minor changes/enhancements to existing commands.
      - Miscellaneous minor bug fixes.
