#/bin/bash for ((i = 1; i <= 10; i ++)) do echo $i done
- Save it as myscript.sh.
Setting the execution rights:
Open a console, go to the directory where the script was saved and type:
chmod +x myscript.sh
Running the script:
- In the console type:
The result should be like this:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
