I am.. I left the shell there so that I could put down a basic prototype of
what I'd be doing so that I could come back to it later and flesh it out.

Likewise, why do we need to write() operation? Can't we just use <<

I chose a write() function because of the "Design and Programming" section
of the "Requirements and Guideline" page states that explicit is better than
implicit, and this seemed like the most explicit way to do this! I also like
the idea by Phil Endicott for using the write function to specify a file to
use for writing (or a stream). Later when I have more time, I'll play around
with various ideas of this nature and see which seems to work best.

Otherwise looks like it's progressing nicely.

Thank you =)
