A cousin. But we are trying to merge and share overlapping
The shell has been there a long time but between 4.8 and 4.9
Chris Johns and myself spent a LOT of time improving it and
adding commands. I also wrote the manual.
Commands are easy to add and easy to improve. If you
have an idea, run with it.
Some interesting features:
+ prompt is generated by a method that you as a user
can replace. This means you can put current application
information, etc in it.
+ command set is configurable and extensible so you
can turn it into a very application specific diagnostic
+ telnet and serial accessible
+ Scripts (no logic yet) are supported.
+You can mount filesystems.
+ Some commands are from BSD.
+ You can set the date this way. :-D
Peruse the shell manual.
