C Shell with Multiple Pipes

Can anyone point me to a tutorial which shows how to code multiple pipes into C?  I'm creating a simple shell, and it needs to be able to dynamically process a dynamic number of piped commands.  Most of the examples i've seen to date only handle a single pipe.  As a result, the authors only hard-coded the pipe handling function in to deal with a single pipe.  I need to figure out how to dynamically handle multiple pipes, as a regular Unix shell would, and would greatly appreciate a tutorial or sample code if anyone has it available.  Thanks!
