bash script includes?
I am fairly new to the bash scripting thing. I've written up a nice script to perform some automated work functions. But as I add to the script it has gotten longer and more difficult to manage.
Other programming types allow the use of include files. Does bash scripting offer such a thing? I tried searching for help on this and have not found anything concrete with what I need. The only include I found was in the manual page and it seems to just immediately execute the file.
I have a number of functions or procedures in the script file and would like to let some of those reside in other files. That way I could keep the menu functions in one file, the file manipulation functions in another, etc.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
