First off I have very bad C/C++ abilities so take it easy and please comment any code you post.
I'm trying to create a BASH free version of Python that has all the capablities of BASH. So all I need is a C extension module that has some file execution and manipulation abilities. I would appreciate it if anyone could give me a list of features a shell scripting launguage needs or if someone would write some functions that did things like execute files or read/write files. However, if someone could give me some urls of websites that have source code examples or shell programming tutorial that would be even better.
