    A Little help for Shell Script

    CME 1003 Shell Script Assignment
    Project Specification
    A shell script is a script written for the shell, or command line interpreter, of an operating system. Typical operations performed by shell scripts include file manipulation, program execution, printing text etc.
    Shell : In computing, a shell is a piece of software that provides an interface for users. In this project, you should prepare a Linux shell script which performs following operations:
    Your script will ask user 4 options : Create, Move, Delete, Copy. The option will be applied to
    Directories and/or Files which contain given name.
    Create : Reads a directory name and number from user and creates directories.
    Example : directory name = student
    number = 13
    student1, student2, student3... student13 directories will be created by this option.
    While creating each folder, script will ask user directory permissions. (permissions could
    be given by number values like; 775 for rwxrwxr-x)
    ( NOTE: If directories exist, inform user!)
    Move : Name and new location is taken from user.
    Copy : Name and new location is taken from user.
    Delete : Name is taken from user.
    NOTE : Each operation will be logged in log.txt such as:
    Example : Directory documentation_13.11.2007 is moved to upper directory
    All of these options will be listed as a menu for user. At the end of each operation menu should
    be shown unless user selects Exit option. The shell script should display appropriate messages
    such as warning, information.
    Example : If given filename does not exist, warn user.
    NOTE : The wildcards should be accepted by your shell script as user input !

    Please help me..
