    Bash Shell Scripts


    Im needing to write a Bash shell script which will transfer a .PDB filename to a C program which will then be doing things to that file.

    Anyone any ideas where to start would be appreciated!!!

    if i've read your question correctly, you can call command-line programs in bash using back-ticks ````

    so write and compile you c code (that accepts the filename as a argument) and in bash go:

    RESULT=`my_c_program $FILENAME`
    echo $RESULT
    do you think this should be on the linux programming board?
