This episode, recorded on Monday 12th October 2020, features a section from the paper "The UNIX Time-sharing System - A Retrospective", written by Dennis M Ritchie, at Bell Labs, Murray Hill, New Jersey. A version of this paper was presented at the 10th Hawaii International Conference on the System Sciences in January 1977. The section is "The User Interface", which gives us some great insights into the origins and design of the Unix and Linux command interpreter, also known as the shell.
