Yeah, fork works there.
Did I mention that fork _SUCKS_ ?
But what can you do? Is there a good way in AmigaOS to say "I want to run
this application, and this file descriptor (which I have open for writing)
will be the stdin, and THESE file descriptors (which I have open for
reading) will be stdout/stderr". And if so, does it port well into POSIX?
If you don't get what I'm hinting at here, I'm actually suggesting writing
a shell from scratch, AND making it portable :-P
We'll jump off that bridge when we get there.
