A script to make folders...


Hey everyone,

i am new to scripting (just starting off infact) and i was curious in the process of making a batch file that would make folders named "1" to "100".

How would this be done??
My guess is it would look something like:

mkdir "1" +1;
if dir=100 stop (some sort of test)

else go back to top


seems like quite an easy script... but for having NO scripting experiance... any help is greatly taken

Thanks!!!
MC

this will do it.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

var=1
LIMIT=101

while [ $var != $LIMIT ]
do
  mkdir "$var"
  var=$(($var+1))
done

exit 0

Another possibility.

num=0
until (( $num > 99 ))
do
let num+=1
mkdir "$num"
done
