    C Programming in UNIX

    Write a C program to execute multiple Unix commands in parallel.• The number of Unix commands is not fixed.• There is no communication among the Unix commands.• The Unix commands are given as command line arguments.• For simplicity, you can assume that each Unix command has exactly one argumentexcept that the last one can have either no argument or one argument.
    For example,>>>>> miniminishell cat openfile.c ls –t psincludes three Unix commands: cat with one argument openfile.c, ls with one argument–t, and ps with no argument.
    For each Unix command, use a separate child process to execute it. You need to print outeach process id.

    OK, so what do you want us to do about it?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    If xey pays me, I might as well do it, who wouldn't? But xey is stupid and is on the wrong forum if xey expect someone else to write code for them. xey buddy, have a look at: https://cboard.cprogramming.com/cplu...uncements.html especially the part that mentions HW.

    Incorrect use of the word xey at this point, the x* family of nouns were invented (by someone else, not me) to fill a need for gender neutral words in the english language:
    xey=he/she
    xem=him/her
    xers=his/hers
    I forget the rest atm

    Don't they/them/their suffice? They've been acceptable as gender-neutral singular personal pronouns since, oh, the 14th century.

    Funny digression:

    She gave it to him - Not at all confusing
    He gave it to him - Kind of ambiguous
    It gave it to it - Sounds like nonsense

    Yeh but they are missing some accompanying pronouns, I forget which right now but it wasn't possible to produce suitable pronouns to accompany them, also they can also apply to a group of people whereas xey can ONLY apply to a singular person at a time, just look it up if you're that interested.
