What I m thinking of as the Zork shell might actually be the adventure shell.
I remember the following ways of doing things in it.
Instead of cd .. it was "go up"
instead of cd thing it was "go thing"
to move a file you got the file and placed it in your inventory and then went
to the new directory and dropped it there.
Is this the adventure shell?
