I think that now might be a good time to give more information about what
I need to do.
I need to translate between UNIX and DOS (and back) shells for my third
year computing project - so a sh like shell for DOS would not be of use.
Current opinion (my own and of people who have replied - thanks and sorry
for not replying by the way) suggest that I should use the Bourne shell.
I am partiucularly interested to know whether there exists a lex script
for this shell, and of any books or articles that might help me.
[Honestly, I think this is hopeless except for tiny toy scripts. And
there's still the problem that much of the useful functionality of the
Bourne shell comes from commands like test, cat, and grep, none of which
have standard DOS equivalents. -John]
