    pipe not working

    i was wondering if anyone could give me a hint as to what i'm doing wrong...

    program takes in a two commands and pipes them using the || instead of the standard unix pipe ( | ).

    it runs the pipe fine...prints the results, but then exits out of the shell.

    ie. myshell> cat myfile || sort

    kicks back into bash instead of giving my myshell> prompt after printing the result..

    code is attached.

    thanks again for any help
