    I have to program a "simple shell". It will accept input from a command
    line parser that has been provided. I gotta do all sorts of funky stuff
    I know very little about.

    Can anyone tell me where I can find some code to look at, or a good
    reference to get started? I tried searching google, but I can't seem to
    find an example...

    Have you actually made a design of this shell, so you know where to start?
    The question in it's current form is a) too generic, b) too off topic.

    But Linux is open source, and it has tons of shells available, probably a
    bunch of proprietary as well, which could be simple. Most if not all are
    open source.

    Good luck,

  3. I posted example ISO C source for a (very) simple shell in comp.programming
    on 8th January of this year.
