Bash Practice Exercises: Essential Techniques for Mastering the Framework

Here’s a simple Bash practice exercise to get you started:

Create a new Bash script called that prompts the user for their name and then prints a personalized greeting.

To do this, start by adding the “shebang” line to the top of your script:

bashCopy code#!/bin/bash

Then, use the read command to prompt the user for their name and store the result in a variable:

bashCopy coderead -p "What is your name? " name

Finally, use echo to print a personalized greeting that includes the user’s name:

bashCopy codeecho "Hello, $name! Nice to meet you."

Save the script and make it executable using the chmod command:

bashCopy codechmod +x

Now, run the script by typing its name at the command prompt:

bashCopy code./

You should see the prompt asking for your name. Type your name and press enter, and the script should print a personalized greeting.

This is just a simple example, but there are many more things you can do with Bash, such as creating loops, branching logic, and working with files and directories. Try experimenting with different commands and syntax to see what you can do!
