In DOS, a shell script is basically a batch file (eg, myfile.bat).
So, writing a shell script in C under DOS environment really makes no sense.

Or do you mean that you want a version of the UNIX C-shell (csh) to run under DOS?  DOS is not powerful enough to mimic much of the csh functionality but you may find a minimal port somewhere on the net.
