how to view the code form /bin/sh

How do we view th ecode for executables??

qwk,grep.fgrep, etc..
any ideas??

as they are written in C , I think , there should be some place where they are placed.

Most executable files have been compiled, which means they're no longer readable by humans. You'll have to find the source code for the program, which probably won't be located in /bin/sh, but in the creator's home directory or perhaps in one location if everyone agreed to store their source code there...

Hmm.. after reading this post, I don't think the above is the answer you wanted, but I can't help you anymore. Your instructor can help you more than anyone here.
