Code:
select Scripts in script1 script2;do
        case $script in
                script1) ;break;;
                script2) ;break;;
                *)printf "Invalid option\n";break;;
        esac
done

So, I'm looking for something along the lines of above? How would I be able to link each choice with the specific part of the script e.g;

Choice 1 would run;

Code:
#!/bin/sh
for d in    /usr/local/production/temp/newfolder/first-file.sh \
             /usr/local/production/temp/newfolder/first-file.sh \
             /usr/local/production/temp/newfolder/second-file.sh \
             /usr/local/production/temp/newfolder/third-file.sh \
             /usr/local/production/temp/newfolder/fourth-file.sh
do
     $d     
     RC=$?
     if test "$RC" != "0"
     then
          echo "continue? [y]/n"
     read N
     case "$N" in 
        Y* | y* ) 
              ;;
        * )
              exit $RC
              ;;
      esac
fi
done

chmod +x

Choice 2 would run;

Code:
#!/bin/sh
for d in    /usr/local/production/temp/first-file.sh \
             /usr/local/production/temp/second-file.sh \
             /usr/local/production/temp/third-file.sh \
             /usr/local/production/temp/fourth-file.sh 
do
     $d     
     RC=$?
     if test "$RC" != "0"
     then
          echo "continue? [y]/n"
     read N
     case "$N" in 
        Y* | y* ) 
              ;;
        * )
              exit $RC
              ;;
      esac
fi
done

chmod +x

I suggest putting the different choices in their own scripts and then you have something you can use immediately.

Then work on a separate menu program that calls the appropriate script.

That is what I plan on doing for the time being until I manage to get a menu working. Was just asking for the future really.

Thanks for your help Porter!
