Thank you for your quick response. It's an online class and it's difficult to get the help I need. I certainly don't want anyone doing the work for me, there's still a whole script to write and I've been at it for a while now. The only thing I couldn't figure out how to do was to change the color of the output text. So you know I'm not being sneaky about my question, but am seeking help with just part of a project, here is the message I just sent my professor:
I really cannot figure out, at all, how to change the color of the output from a shell script. I've looked on YouTube, I've looked all through the book, I've sent out a mass email to classmates (you included), I've done google searches, I've sat here at the terminal and just tried different combinations of commands and options, I've gone to the following sites:
...and many, many more. I just cannot make it work. Would you be so kind as to walk me through how to get this done so I can get on with my last few labs? I'm beyond the point of frustration. It would be really helpful and I'd really appreciate it.
But if I can get this finished before he responds that would be even better.
