Running multiple unix commands in a single script

Hi,

I would like to write a script with include more than 6 unix commands.

my script like below:
Code:
echo " script started"

ls -ld 

bdf | grep "rama"

tail -10 log.txt
...
..
...

now, i want to run above unix commands one by one.
example:
first the ls -ld command will be executed, then the script will wait for user input( ENTER from KEYBOARD) to continue for execute next command(bdf | grep "rama")

{
  echo -n "Continue? "
  read KEY
}

continue
echo "2nd command"
continue
echo "3rd command"

After each command, give one more command as "read".
So it will wait for ur enter.


eg.
Code:
echo " script started"
 read;
ls -ld 
 read;
bdf | grep "rama"
 read;
tail -10 log.txt
read;

Hi,
one simple way is to use the read command, ie
Code:
...
ls -ld 
read input
bdf | grep "rama"
...

whatever the user enter is put into the variable input, which You can use or discard as You please.

Best regards,
Lakris
