FAQ 3.3 Is there a Perl shell?

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by PerlFAQ Server, Apr 14, 2011.

  1. This is an excerpt from the latest version perlfaq3.pod, which
    comes with the standard Perl distribution. These postings aim to
    reduce the number of repeated questions as well as allow the community
    to review and update the answers. The latest version of the complete
    perlfaq is at http://faq.perl.org .

    3.3: Is there a Perl shell?

    The "psh" (Perl sh) is currently at version 1.8. The Perl Shell is a
    shell that combines the interactive nature of a Unix shell with the
    power of Perl. The goal is a full featured shell that behaves as
    expected for normal shell activity and uses Perl syntax and
    functionality for control-flow statements and other things. You can get
    "psh" at http://sourceforge.net/projects/psh/ .

    "Zoidberg" is a similar project and provides a shell written in perl,
    configured in perl and operated in perl. It is intended as a login shell
    and development environment. It can be found at
    http://pardus-larus.student.utwente.nl/~pardus/projects/zoidberg/ or
    your local CPAN mirror.

    The "Shell.pm" module (distributed with Perl) makes Perl try commands
    which aren't part of the Perl language as shell commands. "perlsh" from
    the source distribution is simplistic and uninteresting, but may still
    be what you want.

    The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.

    If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
    perlfaq.pod.
