I would like to specify the startup command to run on the :terminal shell. E.g. bash -c ls. The shell can be specified with set shell=bash, but how to specify the arguments? In another use case, I need to specify the shell used by WSL on Windows (wsl -e fish) with set shell=wsl (which currently opens bash by default).


It can be done with :terminal $SHELL $CUSTOM $ARGS.

    I believe you can also do :terminal ++shell {args}
