there is no chdir mkdir ..etc in that shell
OK, then how did this shell support making, changing and removing directories?

Meanwhile here is the source code for the Kenneth Almquest clone of the Bourne shell in FreeBSD 2.0, which is approx 15 years old, for you to examine.

File V7/usr/src/cmd/sh/xec.c contains:
				case SYSCD:
					IF flags&rshflg
					THEN	failed(com[0],restricted);
					ELIF (a1==0 ANDF (a1=homenod.namval)==0) ORF chdir(a1)<0
					THEN	failed(a1,baddir);

The mkdir command is usually a program external to the shell.

Good luck ... cheers, drl
