This is not really relevant to Resharper, but hopefully relevant to JetBrains...
I've just read the rather in-depth article at Ars Technica discussing Microsoft's
upcoming command shell (MSH), available here:
On the final page (http://arstechnica.com/guides/other/msh.ars/13) the author
points out the following:
"My biggest frustration with MSH is the low quality of the actual shell interface.
On my Linux system, I am extremely dependent on line editing keyboard shortcuts
that simplify manipulation and alteration of command line input. MSH has
very few line editing shortcuts, and extremely limited support for tab completion.
I would like to see an MSH command line interface that provides the code
completion and syntax highlighting features found in Visual Studio. Code
completion support and parameter tooltips would make the shell much easier
to use. Apparently, the SDK will eventually enable users to build their own
host applications with MSH functionality, so a third-party or indpendent
developer could potentially construct her own enhanced shell interface."
My immediate thought was that JetBrains should be the ones to write the ultimate
MSH shell. Any chance this might actually happen? :)
