Hello,

Yes, there is: open up a file in a text editor, type those two commands in, save that file, mark it as executable, and run it in Bash. Basically, if you can type it, you can script it (more or less, anyway). That's all a Bash script is, at its heart - a sequence of commands that the shell runs through in order that (with a few exceptions) are no different from anything you could have done by hand.

I think at this point there's a question that needs to be asked so that you can give people a better idea of what to suggest to help you: what are you actually trying to achieve with these commands, and why do you want to put these two commands in a script ? If you can explain the problem you're trying to solve, people may be able to offer more practical suggestions.
