BCS Bash Scripting Basics

To create a new bash script a empty blank file must be created and properly labeled as “name.sh”. The name portion off the file specification should be replaced by a meaningful name.
Make the file specification executable by issuing the following command.
[codesyntax lang=”bash”]

chmod +x name.sh

To pass parameters to the script they are included on the command line.
[codesyntax lang=”bash”]

./name.sh param1 param2 param3

Should any of the parameters include special characters they should be surrounded by double quotes ‘param1 “param 2” param3’.
