I want to know if one can execute a shell script in an iPad/iPhone app.

I have tried searching but I haven't got an exact answer yet. The general response is negative.


The simplest example of this would be a script execution on a button click event which will echo "Hello World!".


I also need to know if there is a way to add a set of commands to the existing set of scripts.

This can be done on the mac by simply downloading the folder to the hard drive.

iPad, iOS 6
