The actual features of Boshell 0.3 prealpha are:

version 0.4b prealpha
  • Improoved the association file/program support.
    Now you can write a thing like that:
    $ ,/c to open automatically with your favourite program all the c files
    in your current working directory.
  • Fixed bugs in the association and propmpt customization implementation

  • version 0.4 prealpha
  • file association system. ,/ (comma-slash)
    You can specify in the bohshell configuration file the association
    between extensions and softwares, so you can write in the config something
    c | jed
    and next in the shell
    $ ,/main.c association.c something.h
    the shell will open jed with the files
    Actually you can't specify something like:
    $ ,/c
    to specify *.c
    This is probably a 0.4b version feature
