vish is a little closer to looking normal

One of the good engineers I know found out why my shell is not able to deal with commands without absolute path names. The problem was that I was using the wrong flavor of exec. Now that I am using execvp, this issue is resolved. execvp searches for the executable in the directories that are listed in the PATH env variable. Thanks Linu.
