    Hello.

    I was thinking about writing a UNIX shell program using Python. Has
    anyone got any experience on this? Is it even possible? I have
    programmed a simple shell in C before and I came to think about how
    perfect Python would be for parsing user input.

    Regards,
    Deniz Dogan

    Not only *can* it be done, but it *has* been done and well: See IPython at:
