terrycojones/daudin: A Python command-line shell edit / delete

"daudin is a UNIX command-line shell based on Python." It's a bit brute-force (if something parses as Python, it gets evaluated as an expression, else it's passed to the shell) but looks like it should work pretty well.

"This directory contains some scripts of the lecture Operating Systems at the Berufsakademie Stuttgart." (Or, as we'd say, some lectures for the module &c.) Interesting in that it uses Unix v6 and the Lions book.

Capsicum Implementation Status edit / delete

I keep thinking "wouldn't it be nice if someone did capability-based security in Unix userspace" and then forgetting that this project already exists...
