i want to make a script with case.esac


I know how to do regular the ones

#!/bin/bash
NUM=$(( RANDOM % 10 ))
case $NUM in

0) echo "zero"
1) echo "one"
2 bla bla
3 bla
4 bla
5 bla
6 bla

But how do i use the read command in this
i want it to read a number and say it in letters

Hi

You just need to put line read NUM in it.

Here's an example:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

#NUM=$((RANDOM % 10))
echo -n "Enter a number: "
read NUM
case $NUM in

0) echo Zero ;;
1) echo One ;;
2) echo Two ;; 
3) echo Three ;;
*) echo Bigger than Three ;;
esac
