True, however we do not want to introduce commands that the OP has not learned yet so as not to add to the confusion nor just write the program.

Advice using cut & echo combination commands



Code:
	#Capitalizes each word
pref="$(echo -e "${pref}" | sed -r 's/([\b ]?)(.)([a-zA-Z]*)/\1\U\2\L\3/')"
good link for loops


do you have to use cut to get the data you need?

plus d'une façon à la peau d'un chat

use these google key words for working with string data which is what you are doing

"string manipulation bash linux"

#!/bin/bash


while [ sortie="true" ]
do

echo -n "Entrez l'heure sous forme hh:mm ou fin terminer :"

read temps

heure= "$temps" |cut -d: f1
minute= "$temps" |cut -d: f2

if [ $heure = "fin" ]

then
let sortie = "false"

fi

if [[ "$heure" -ge 0 ]] && [[ "$heure" -le 23 ]] && [[ "$minute" -ge 0 ]] && [[ "$minute" -le 59 ]]
then
if [[ "$heure" -ge 6 ]] && [[ "$heure" -le 18 ]]
then
echo "Bonjour"

else

echo "Bonsoir"
fi


fi

sortie = "false"
done

Looks like you are making some progress.

Did you look at my hint on the proper syntax for cut in my previous post #14? You can substitute $temps for "12:59".

Improper if statments

use echo to see what's going on in your code

ie:

Code:
read temps

echo "temps: $temps"

heure= "$temps" |cut -d: f1
minute= "$temps" |cut -d: f2

echo "Heure: $heure"
echo "minute: $minute"
review @michaelk hints

Code:
Your reading in two variables, hour and minute but then you want to
use the cut command to split time. Most commands require the - (hyphen)
for specifying options. The correct syntax for the cut command would be

cut -d ":" -f1
and here is a hint for cut:
echo "12:59" | cut -d ":" -f1

Nope.

Just trying to explain to the op that

echo "12:59" | cut -d ":" -f1

would become

echo "$temps" | cut -d ":" -f1

Now just assign that to the variable heure.

you're NOT paying attention to detail?

I agree with BW-userx. If you break down the assignment into smaller parts it will seem less complicated. Ignore the if [hour=end] for now and work on the hour and minute variables working.

Apparently your English is poor ... let us try this:
