ash: NetBSD's ash (Almquist sh) for Linux1

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

Ash is a Bourne compatible shell. It is without job control only 62K in size. The slackware distribution has shown, that such a small shell can be useful for a good bootdisk. However it might not be as convienient for interactive use as bash, ksh or tcsh.
