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 might be because they duplicate functionality already available on POSIX systems or introduce more complex dependencies. It might also be because that specific builtin is in an alpha stage and thus not ready to ship with murex.
There are also optional some builtins which are automatically be built on Windows to include a few coreutils commands missing Windows.
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.
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
!bz2: Decompress a bz2 file
base64: Encode or decode a base64 string
gz: Compress or decompress a gzip file
qr: Creates a QR code from STDIN
select: Inlining SQL into shell pipelines
sleep: Suspends the shell for a number of seconds
