Help me making this script

This script is executed whenever a new vehicle is added to the cycle-motor park
of campus. The script asks for the following information about the car and adds a new
line to the vehicle file.txt: name (name of an animal, unique identifier), color, mark,
model, type (e.g., electrical, manual), number of changes, and enrollment. You should verify that the name
already exists in the file, in order to prevent the creation of duplicates.
