CPU & Memory Shell check the value for input1 and input2


I need to check the value for input 1 and input 2. If input1 and input2 is not empty, then application will continue.

I tried the following, but it doesn't work.
  if [ -z input1 && -z input2]; then

Anyone knows how to solve this?

Your logic is negated. Try something like this:

if [ -z "${input1}" -o -z "${input2}" ]; then
   exit 1

# do other stuff, i.e "continue"

Here, if input1 _or_ input2 are empty, the script will exit.

if [[ -z $input1 || -z $input2 ]]
exit 1
# do other stuff, i.e "continue"
