vshnu

Vshnu is a visual shell for Linux/Unix finally done right. Best used as an optional color visual mode to a regular command line shell, vshnu is handy for powerful directory listing and navigation, Unix command assembly, special actions on file types, and fileset handling. Written in Perl for portability and high configurability, it also provides the advantages of a Perl interpreter as part of your Unix shell environment.

            Vshnu kicks butt
            Try this out, people. Anything to save keystrokes gets my vote and this does it without sacrificing utility. Nice job.
