Computer Simple UNIX Shell Script help, PLEASE

I don't know anything about UNIX. I have been developing on NT platform and now a batch file I was running in my java code must work on UNIX instead. How do I change the below .bat file into a shell script that can be run on UNIX? Thanks in advance for your help.


@ECHO OFF
D:
CD\ARIBA\BUYER7\CORESERVER\FAXORDERS
LPR -S 10.10.10.35 -P TCPFAXGATE DO270.TXT


What extension do I save it as if it's a shell script? Sorry, I'm clueless. Thanks.

You might change the script to be something like:

cd /ARIBA/BUYER7/CORESERVER/FAXORDERS
lpr -S 10.10.10.35 -P TCPFAXGATE DO270.TXT



Just change the path to whatever is appropriate. Remember that Unix is case sensitive. You do not have to give the script any particular extension, just make it executable by typing:

chmod +x <I>filename</I>
