you have been exposed to shell scripting in your previous posts and its an easy task for this stated problem. Try to do it yourself and show your code next time.

@ibabhelix;

What reference material are you using for learning shell scripting? Has anyone suggested http://tldp.org? If not, go there and get the Bash Guide for Beginners.

You might want to start with the 'Bash Beginners Guide'.

Sorry,,,Sorry,,,Sorry!

I did not see your post. I copied the wrong link anyway, It should have been; Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide 6.1.




The above link and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
