Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

//assume real_command_line has "please be done" in it. n=3, and the allocation for args will be 4.
//the below parts takes "please", copies it in a string named buffer, equals buffer to command->args[k], then takes "be" and again the same and "done" and the same operations are done. but command->args[k] has a null value everytime and I can't solve it!
but after this step, when I try to printf command->args,
it gives the last string which is "done". Actually all command->args, command->args, command->args is getting equal to "done". I don't know why and how can I solve this...
If someone is curious how ( ), I used an extra pointer array like char **array;
and allocated it's columns and rows and used it instead of the array buffer. I think somehow using a single array like buffer overwrites all the rows of the **args pointer array. I don't know why, but that's the case.
