    Wink need a bit knowledge...

    i really want to creat something like a shell programm.. and i want to know how i can make this ----> [xlord@xlord]# stay in the program..
    like for example if i was to type in "ls" or "cat" well i want it go go back to
    [xlord@xlord]#. Unless i wanted it to show filez when i was going to do
    [xlord@xlord]# ls ... but all i want is to make it go back to the shell..

    thanx... if anyone can help me start this.. if not thanx anyway..

    just create an infinite loop that keeps spitting that out as a command line.

    for(;;)
    {
    printf("whatever:");
    scanf("%c", &chr);

    if( chr == 'q') break;
    }

    that way you provide youirself an out in case you need to escape back to the shell.
