Need answers for these shell programs.....

1. Write a shell script to print the file names of all files having .txt extension of a given directory after converting to uppercase letters.

In case of invalid input, proper message should be displayed.

Good Afternoon, between 12PM and 4 PM
Good Evening, after 4 PM

3. Write a shell script - compare.sh
It will take two string arguments from the user, compare them and give the output “Both are same” or “Both are different” based on whether they are same or not. If input string is null, error message should be given.
If user enters less or more number of arguments, an error should be thrown

Ex :

7. Write a shell script to count the frequency of semi colons( in a given file. The input file should be given as command line argument. The script will check whether sufficient arguments are there or not and whether the argument is a file or not while the script is executed. In case of invalid input , proper message should be displayed.

8. Use awk for displaying first n numbers in Fibonacci series where n is supplied as command line argument.
Note: Fibonacci series of numbers are 0 and 1, and each remaining number is the sum of the previous two. For e.g. first 5 numbers in Fibonacci series are 0, 1, 1, 2, 3

9. Write a shell script to display the four letter words in a given file. The script will also print the count of such words. The input file should be given as command line argument. The script will check whether sufficient arguments are there or not and whether the argument is a file or not while the script is executed. In case of invalid input, proper message should be displayed.
NOTE: The output should display the word only once although it may occur in the file more than once. Total count should be also the count of the distinct words.

e.g If the content of the given file is as folows----------------
There are three bags.
This is a blue bag.
My blue bags are full.

The output should be as----------------------
bags
This
blue
full
Count of four letter words is: 4

10. Write a shell script to display the longest line in a given file. It will also display the number of words in that line. The input file should be given as command line argument. The script will check whether sufficient arguments are there or not and whether the argument is a file or not while the script is executed.
