This is the home page for version 0.7.pre6 of Oil, a Unix shell. To use it,
- Download a source tarball.
- Build and install it, as described in INSTALL.
These steps take 30 to 60 seconds on most machines. After that, you can

Oil has three major sources of docs:
- The Doc Overview links to all other docs, including the Manual and
Oil Language Reference. It's work in progress. Up-to-date docs include:
- Quick Reference, with examples (incomplete).
This doc underlies the
help builtin, and gives a rough overview of what
features Oil implements.
- Github Wiki for oilshell/oil
- The Oil Deployments
wiki page has other ways of getting Oil. These versions may not be
- Lines of source, counted in different ways:
- osh-cloc. OSH and common
libraries, as measured by the cloc tool.
- src. The whole Oil repo organized by
type of source file.
- OPy. How much code is in the OPy
- Lines of dependencies:
- pydeps. Oil code plus the Python
- nativedeps. Oil code plus A
slice of CPython.
- Bytecode Metrics
- Native Code Metrics
- overview - An analysis of GCC's

ship as little of CPython as possible, and this is what's left.
The OPy compiler is used to compile Oil to bytecode, but isn't itself part of

These files may help you understand how Oil is implemented, i.e. with
domain-specific languages and code generation.
- _devbuild/gen/id.h. A list of language
elements, used in the lexer and in multiple parsers and evaluators.
- The regex-based lexer uses two stages of code generation:
- frontend/syntax.asdl. The syntax tree
for OSH and Oil.
- oil_lang/grammar.pgen2. The
expression grammar for Oil. In contrast, the OSH parsers are hand-written.
