Default Placing processes in the background

Hey there!

    I am new to this forum so bear with me. I am trying to write my own shell for Linux, and so using C I was able to write one which basicly reads in a command with arguments and executes it, however I want to make my shell to automaticlly run processes in the bakground everytime, which should return me to command line everytime I enter a command and not wait for it to be finished. I looked at the different exe() syscalls and didnt see one that will take as an argument and indicator that a particular process should be run in the background. Any pointers here would be helpfull.
