shell script options

one thing i was trying to figure out is if you can give people the option to choose what they want to do in a shell script. for example, let's just say that you have a simple shell script to install a couple of programs, can you make it to where you can press a certain key to install a certain program only without installing all of the programs in that script? if their is a way, can you tell me how to do it? i hope i made this clear enough. i tried to think about how to explain it the best i could. LOL thanks
