Bash shell script help?


Could someone possibly email me at <removed> and help me with my bash shell script assignment? This is my first linux class and Im taking it online, which is turning out to be a huge mistake, my teacher doesnt answer back quickly at all and I'm having a hard time with this assignment. I am not asking you to do the assignment just please guide me in the right direction. I really dont want to have to drop this class and take it again next semester. For the assignment we had to download a pdf to the terminal which I have done now I need help.

this is the assignment

Create a bash shell script, named uniq-teams.sh that uses pdftotext, sed, and perl -p -i -e (note: you may not need the -i) to create a sorted list of non-duplicated team names from the selected pages of the PDF file.

It must take the following parameters:

input pdf filename
start page
end page
If any of the parameters are missing, your program should print usage instructions.

Your script must remove the following:

Must remove blank/empty lines
Page breaks
Must remove duplicates
Must remove non-team lines, e.g. Area and Ballroom

Thanks a lot in advance.
