( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
It really depends on what you want to achieve with this shell. If you have a reliable shell you want to piggyback then your approach is as good as mine... (except instead of having a regex for each command, do the UNIX modular design: make some small commands and one regex for a whole group of them)

If you want to enhance a shell ( DOS comes to mind ) you need to decide what to emulate. Make some recursive subs that break a command into parts, emulate pipes "|" by openning things with  open(PRINTER, "| lpr -Plp1") Perl pipe opens, emulate file io ">","<" with... I guess pipe opens again. To run commands you can have a variable with the directory that contains all the executables, upon command submittal you can check whether the typed command is one of those executables and then run it.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
