Nilsh is an implementation of interactive shell in C language under Linux platform. It has features listed as following:

  • command execution
  • input/output redirection
  • pipe


Clone the source code and then:

cd nilsh/src
make && ./nilsh

You can start the trial now. Nilsh should could execute most of commands installed on your Linux system.


Nilsh is an experimental work, which I have a blog post to explain in detail. If you find any bug, create an issue. Pull request is also welcome.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
