I need to configure a server with few file and i want to do it programatically.
i need to create files say /home/a.config, /var/spool/b.config, /etc/c.config
above files have some contents (multi lines).
i want to create ONE shell script which can create all three file with multiple lines (around 10).
i would like to know the how can i use CAT command to do that. (inside shell script).
i am looking somehting like this
echo " going to create /home/a.config"
cat "HOW CAN I HAVE MULTIPLE LINES HERE?? " > /home/a.config
You can use a here document:
cat <<EOF >/home/a.config first line second line third line EOF
You can place several of these in the same script.
