I'm messing around with scripting, I am able to create a script which when run prompts me for a name for a new dir, creates it then creates several files, echoes lines out, then deletes it all.
What I would like to do is morph it slightly so it creates and names the directory all by itself!
Seems a pointless exercise I know, but messing around with it is the best way I learn.
Here is my current script:
#!/bin/bash echo "Give a directory name to create:" read NEW_DIR ORIG_DIR=$(pwd) [[ -d $NEW_DIR ]] && echo $NEW_DIR already exists, aborting && exit mkdir $NEW_DIR cd $NEW_DIR pwd for n in 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 do touch file$n done ls file? for names in file? do echo This file is named $names > $names done cat file? cd $ORIG_DIR rm -rf $NEW_DIR echo "Goodbye"
