[solved] HOWTO write .BAT file? (but for linux)

Post#1 by testsforknowledge » 01 Mar 2013, 09:34

>> How to write file like .BAT in win? << (in .BAT we can store number of commands, ifs and goto ... what about linux?)

in win we just write
ECHO message
and we save file as "TEST.bat". Then we can run it in console and we see "message".

How to do this in linux? How to write some application like .BAT? (in linux i think it is .SH)

1) open file
2) write

#comment
echo "message"

3) save file as "test.sh"
4) chmod 777 ./test.sh ()
5) run with
./test.sh

(i need to rename multiple of files with .SH ... but also to copy some ...):)

hi,
you can use "dosbox" to run *.bat for windows on linux too.
