murex Shell Docs

Optional Command Reference

This section is a glossary of murex optional builtins.

These builtins likely wont be compiled with murex unless you specifically request them to be. This will be because they duplicate functionality already available on POSIX systems. However some of these tools might be missing from an out-of-the-box Windows install and in those instances murex will default to compiling many optionals.

Language Guides

  1., for docs on the core builtins.
  2., which contains builtins required for building logic.

murex's Source Code

In murex's source under the lang/builtins path of the project files is several directories, each hosting different categories of murex builtins. From core commands through to data-types and methods.

Each package will include a README.html file with a basic summary of what that package is used for and all you to enable or disable builtins, should you decide to compile the shell from source.

Shell Commands For Querying Builtins

From the shell itself: run builtins to list the builtin command.

If you require a manual on any of those commands, you can run murex-docs to return the same markdown-formatted document as those listed below. eg
