OT: Mac Terminal Replacement?

Hi Das,

The Terminal on mac usually runs a shell.  On Catalina, I use zsh. A quick google search for "zsh show history" returned this:

"To use it, press CTRL + R in your terminal session. This will change your terminal session to search mode, and you can type for previous commands. As you type, the shell will search for a matching command in the history and suggest it. To search for the next matching suggestion, press CTRL + R."

There's probably heaps of options - most unix commands do.

Plus if you have 100 entered and you want something from the first ten, doing 95 up keystrokes would be out of the question. Otherwise, it is very good for reissuing commands you recently entered. Very helpful. Thanks for answering.
