I have a question regarding C programming on UNIX. A call to the function
system() allows a program to execute a shell command. However, system
invokes sh but not csh. As a result it cannot execute a command which
is an alias defined in the .cshrc file. So my question is as follows.
Suppose you are writing a program that lets the user enter a command
and if it is an alias how would you get the program to run it? I would
appreciate any suggestion you may have. Thank you.
