☯☯☯☯☯☯ Features

No root required! ZShaolin saves you time and effort to be all set on Android with a PRO terminal that includes:
☞ Vim (fully featured) to edit texts with syntax highlight and more

As you can imagine ZShaolin is there to make an hacker's life easier when using Android, while offering a friendly learning environment for shell scripting.

☯☯☯☯☯☯ Documentation

ZShaolin comes complete with all manual pages of included programs (just use man!)

There is plenty of documentation freely available on the Internet in English and other languages on how to use a terminal console, here below we suggest some introductory reading:

☞ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z_shell Information about the Z-shell
☞ http://en.flossmanuals.net/command-line Introduction to the command-line
☞ http://zshwiki.org ZSh user's wiki
☞ http://grml.org/zsh/grml-zsh-refcard.pdf ZSh configuration reference card
☞ http://www.imagemagick.org/script image manipulation
☞ http://sox.sourceforge.net/Docs/Documentation audio manipulation
☞ http://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.html video manipulation


☯☯☯☯☯☯ Known Bugs

☞ SWIFT keyboard not supported.
☞ UTF-8 extended characters are not supported (yet).
☞ Only ARM devices supported, no Intel (yet).
☞ Experimental stage: Perl, Lynx, Lighttpd, MC
☞ Not really a bug, but you need approx 240MB free! be sure there is enough space in FLASH (not sdcard)

We are actively developing ZShaolin and we welcome your bug reports: please report your problems on https://bugs.dyne.org do not report your bugs in the market comments!
