turning off "echo" in shell script.
Hello y'all. Would like to know how to turn "echo" off in a shell scripting. I wrote a shell script, testing a condition, after the condition tested. On the other line I used the echo Command to echo a line, then on the other line I used the "read" command to read an input typed. The crux here is the string or line inputed is what I would like to turn off. Hope anybody can help and understands ? Distro is redhat linux. Thanks.
