Compiling scripts written in Unix

I would like to convert some Unix scripts into machine language. I dont know how to programe in C. Is there any software out there that I can use to convert these Unix scripts into machine language.

I doubt it. Shell operates at too high a level to write a program that converts directly from shell to C. Infact, all the commands that are used in shell programming are written in C. So, to actually convert a shell script, you might have to write a huge amount of code, or you would choose a completely different approach when you write a C program that does what a shell script is supposed to do.
