A “menu” type shell allows a user to “pick”
an item (file or command)from a “menu”. You will display a simple menu
Your shell will read a single key “command” entered by the user,
Followed by a file or directory number (or [optionally]) partial file name with “name completion” and it will output some system information on the terminal, or run a program (by means of systems calls).
The commands you will implement:
Edit – opens a text editor with a file.
Run – runs an executable program. You should handle parameters.
Change – changes working directory.
Sort – sorts listing by either size or date (prompt user)
You will need to implement:
Prev, and Next Operations so that the menu fits on one screen.
Store names in an array, Only one pass through directory.
