spsh: the shitposting shell

An experimental Bourne-style shell for me to learn moar C. Don't actually use this for any serious reason.


$ sudo apt-get install build-essential libreadline6-dev
$ make


  • Readline keys
  • Commands (with fully-qualified paths) and arguments
  • ^D to exit

Not working but planned

In rough order of priority:

  • At least a few simple builtins, like "cd" and "exit"
  • Prompt with username and current directory
  • Environment variables
  • Quoting/escaping arguments (i.e. something better than just strtok())
  • Command history
