Bug Execute unix shell script to text file using the script

Hi all,

I am beginner in UNIX...I want to use unix shell script to create text.file...I know how to use using by command...can anybody tell me for the script?

Thanks

Moderator's Comments:
Mod Comment i changed the threads title from "tex file" to "text file", because "tex" would probably be misunderstood as reference to Don Knuths TeX typesetting software.
