   This manual documents Eshell, a shell-like command interpretor
implemented in Emacs Lisp.  It invokes no external processes except for
those requested by the user.  It is intended to be a functional
replacement for command shells such as `bash', `zsh', `rc', or `4dos';
since Emacs itself is capable of handling the sort of tasks
accomplished by those tools.
