I need help making a script that would do this

This is what I would do manually in terminal (I will be using the .getmusic script from 360 percents to download myspace music):

cd /home/eric/Music

to make sure music gets downloaded to /home/eric/Music:

/home/eric/getmusic.sh http://www.myspace.com/ARTIST

I would like to be able to enter the clipboard text automatically (I don't know how to) in place of "Artist"

music is downloaded to /home/eric/Music in .mp3 format

scp -r /home/eric/Music/* root@

copies music to Ipod via SSH

  • It's not really efficient to scp all files in ~/Music, especially if the folder gets big. – Lekensteyn Mar 6 '11 at 9:26

Create mus.sh and make it executable (chmod +x mus.sh):

cd /home/eric/Music
/home/eric/getmusic.sh "http://www.myspace.com/$*"
scp -r /home/eric/Music/* root@


./mus.sh ARTIST
