        The next PLUG West meeting will be held on Monday,
        December 17 at Unisys in Malvern.  Paul Snyder will give
        a presentation on the Z-Shell, zsh.

        Zsh is a powerful UNIX shell that combines many of the best
        features from other well-known shells, such as bash, ksh,
        tcsh.  It features a superb (and frighteningly complex)
        programmable completion system and many interactive and 
        scripting conveniences.  This talk (entitled "My Shell
        Can Beat Up Your Shell") will provide many tips and tricks
        for using zsh and delve into some of its darker corners.

        Interested in Linux, BSD, and Free Software?  Whether you're
        already an enthusiast or want to learn more, come and join
