bash shell scripting help!
 
I created a name pipe (file) in the my /group directory called chat.
I then have to write a script to read from the named pipe and save data into a file called chat.log until the words End of File are passed to the program.

What does the line you enter in the script using "End of File" suppose to look like?

#!/bin/bash

end=End of File

while read chat
read "$end" ???
do
chat >> chat.log
done

Thanks for the help!

Putting the word "bash" at the fron of the exact same question when people are already trying to help you is really poor form :(
