kiss: The Keep It Simple Shell1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Also: Karel's Interactive Simple Shell (or Incredibly Stupid Shell, if you like).

Kiss is a simple shell language interpreter, meant especially to be used with rescue disks. Kiss contains a lot of built-in commands, which means that you can put Kiss on a bootable floppy and leave out the programs cat, cd, chgrp, chown, chmod, cp, grep, kill, ln, ls, mkdir, mknod, more, mount, mv, printenv, pwd, rmdir, rm, setenv, sleep, touch, umount, wc (this list may grow..). Furthermore, having a statically linked Kiss on your hdu might help you if your /lib gets wiped out: you'll still have some programs that execute.
