echo -e "\n\n \t\t\tPLEASE SELECT THE OPTION"
echo -e "\n\n\t\t\t\t1. first option"
echo -e "\n\n\t\t\t\t2. second option "
echo -e "\n\n\t\t\t\t3. Third optoin "
echo -e "\n\n\t\t\t\t4. Fourth option"
echo -e "\n\n\t\t YOUR OPTION ::"

select=$@

#OR either you can parse argument with option which you want to #run in your menu or directly you can give the option as hard code #inside your sciript

select=1


case $select in
1) echo "first one"
;;
2) echo "second one"
;;
3) echo "third one"
;;
4) echo "fourth one"
;;
esac


Thanks

Now i have included condition ..so this code can directly implement in your script..

should work..


echo -e "\n\n \t\t\tPLEASE SELECT THE OPTION"
echo -e "\n\n\t\t\t\t1. first option"
echo -e "\n\n\t\t\t\t2. second option "
echo -e "\n\n\t\t\t\t3. Third optoin "
echo -e "\n\n\t\t\t\t4. Fourth option"
echo -e "\n\n\t\t YOUR OPTION ::"

select=$@

if [ -z $select ]
then
echo "enter the option to proceed further"
read select
fi

case $select in
1) echo "first one"
;;
2) echo "second one"
;;
3) echo "third one"
;;
4) echo "fourth one"
;;
esac

Thanks

expect

you could use expect

Expect - Expect - Home Page

./procdure.ksh seems to be a script you own, written to manage your environment. Edit the script and add the ability to pass the menu option as command line argument 1. This will come a useful option, when you find other menu items you wish to execute without having to manually select from the menu.
