2011-05-05 18:27:00     [2010R1-RC5] Which shell?

Hello

 

I just tried sash (1.1.1) as the shell, and I don't like it. Does someone know which, if any, of the following shells supports...

 

    TAB completion

    history through up arrow

    arrow keys (sash displays this when I hit the up arrow: ^[[A)

 

Here are the other choices: minix-shell, nwsh, bash, msh, ash, hush, cttyhack

 

Thank you.

bash/ash dont even build for nommu, msh is dead, and cttyhack isnt a shell

 

i dont know anything about minix-shell or nwsh.  but i imagine they're pretty crappy much like sash.

 

the remaining one however is awesome.  and the default for all ADI boards for quite a while now.

Thanks for the tip. I just tried hush, but...

 

1. I get "^[[A" when hitting the up arrow to use a command previously typed

 

2. Hitting the TAB key doesn't provide path completion

 

Did I miss some settings in menuconfig or does it mean hush doesn't support those important features?

Indeed, thanks for the tip.

 

For those having the same issue while using hush: Check the Busybox > Busybox Settings > Busybox Library Tuning section in "make config_menuconfig". Hush now supports the above features.

 

Thank you.
