unalbe to get your question completely

but if you want to pass values to your shell script instead of typing them everytime.

User arguments while running your shell script.

Create a file at your home dir with the lines, now use a for loop to pass on the values or better you can use expect.

for i in `cat file_with_values`

./ $i
