Giving control to shell from a C code?

How can I execute shell from a C code?

My shell is placed in /bin/sh

Following didn't seem to work for me

system("/bin/sh");
exec("/bin/sh");

Maybe you need to tell the shell it should be interactive:

system("/bin/sh -i");

However, I believe that your original system() call should have produced a shell prompt too.

Both notations (with and without the '-i') in this program give me a shell prompt (return to the previous shell by typing 'exit' and RETURN or Control-D):

#include <stdlib.h>
int main(void)
{
    system("/bin/sh -i");
    return 0;
}
