Augumented Unix Userland Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Traditionally, the Unix philosophy has resulted in stringing together simple general purpose utilities to accomplish complex tasks. However, using text as a communication medium between these programs results in needing several formatting utilities to transform output from one program into valid input to another. These transformations can be very complicated and confusing. In this project, we looked at two alternative shell designs that use different communication methods between programs, simplifying interprogram communication and leveraging existing technologies to make developing new utilities and shell scripts easier.
