    Simple script to do some tasks


    Hello Guys,

    I never scripted in linux but want to write a script to do the following.

    1. mount /dev/cdrom to mnt and untar a tarball to /root
    2. remove a rpm package with nodeps option
    3. go to /root/tardirectory and do a ./install.pl -default
    4. remove the tardirectory

    now i do these manually but to automate this into a script, how do i do that? write a shell script? or in perl?

    please advice, this is for a rhel machine, but rarely we also load ubuntu machines so may be perl might be a good option to write the script?

    Thanks
    RJ

    You can make it as a simple script in bash:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    put all the commands here
    You will then need to make the script executable and that's it
