Question Urgent- shell script to create sub folders


Hi All,

Could any one help me with a shell script which will create different sub folders in a folder and of which the sub folders names should be taken from a text file.

Thanks

This is not urgent for anyone of us, so please refrain from using words like urgent in your thread titles.
What have you done so far and what is not working exactly?

Yep

Set up a loop to read from the file. Let's assume you read into a variable "newname" Each time thru the loop, issue the command "mkdir $newname".
As needed, go here and look up the "read" command, the "while" loop, and "redirection":

(You can also get a PDF at the same site.)
