shell script help


Hi to all,

I badly need some help with this. How do I write a shell script version of some C code I wrote? The basic idea is as follows:

variable x is given the value of 1 at start in script. When it goes down the function, I want it to retain the value at which the program terminated when it first ran so that when the program runs a second time, it takes the last value that x got assigned (that is either a 0 or a 1).

if(x==1)
{

printf("Good Morning!!");
x=0;
}

else
if(x==0)
{

printf("Good Afternoon!!");
x=1;
}

Thx in advance..
Regards,
Visham

Can you show us what you have attempted so far? If you paste it here, we'll help but we're not going to write this up for you. This is a very very very simple script. If you don't know where to start, start here:
