How do I get to call "ls" and show its output ?
I'm new to Scheme, Lisp Emacs and the such.
I managed to install scsh and I can even call it from inside Emacs, so
I have a prompt.
But I'm clueless on how to proceed.
exec is there as a procedure but if I type exec ls or exec 'ls' or
exec '/usr/bun/ls' or....
I know my question is mundane, but as stated in this blog post
"I kept getting stuck where the instructions said "Type CONTROL B and
press RETURN." I must have typed CONTROL B a hundred times, but
nothing happened. Finally I abandoned the instructions and began
It was then that I noticed the key marked CTRL. Remember, I had
never used a real computer before. I had only imagined it.
Instructions that come with computers should be written for people who
can only imagine them. What they should have said was, "Press down the
key marked CTRL. While holding it down, press the B key. Now release
these keys and press the key marked RETURN."
Thanks for your help
