Stephen Brennan Tutorial on writing a shell

After learning to program in C language, the next best thing to attempt will be writing some small utility in C. I landed upon a great tutorial ( that taught how to write a shell with some builtin utilities in C. I tried that tutorial today and saw how to build a shell.

That's the best way to learn about the init, fork, parent process, child process and the shell loop itself. As a side-effect, I also setup and used CLion on my computer.
