Hi Friends,

Iam a begineer of shell script. When, i tried to install java 1.6 used by bash script but while executing java paused suddenly, " Press Enter to continue...." how to avoid this

i need continuously run the script file ..

My Script file


cd /opt


cp -rf jdk1.6.0_21 /usr/
rm -rf /usr/bin/java
rm -rf /usr/bin/javac
ln -s /usr/jdk1.6.0_21/bin/java /usr/bin/java
ln -s /usr/jdk1.6.0_21/bin/javac /usr/bin/javac
echo export JAVA_HOME=/usr/jdk1.6.0_21 >> /etc/profile
echo export JAVA_PATH=/usr/jdk1.6.0_21/bin >> /etc/profile
source /etc/profile

Thanks & Regards

    Fist of all it's usually recommended that such questions are made on the forums rather than as blog posts. The odds that someone will read and answer them are a bit better.

    But anyway, I don't know if whatever you're doing is a good idea to begin with, but I think you can manage to "answer" the "press enter to continue" by "piping" the script to the command "yes" (with no parameters, I guess).

    That would be:

    $ yes | ./

    I'm not sure it's really answering with the equivalent of "enter" though, I don't know how to test it for specifically "enter". It seems it works from a dummy script that is just "read variable ; echo ok". It may be better to create a post at the forums.
