I am trying to teach myself to write Shell Scripts on my Raspberry Pi, but I am struggling to make a menu where a user can choose from these different options:

  • display a list of current users
  • display a list of all files including hidden files in the home directory
  • output a calendar for the current month
  • quit the script.

    Perhaps if you post the code you are currently using someone could help. Have you looked at the whiptail package? – joan Sep 16 '14 at 8:28
  • I don't really know where to start I'm afraid, I was hoping someone would help me out with the code. – user3301407 Sep 16 '14 at 8:30
  • This question might fit better on Unix & Linux, as that is a *nix-oriented site. This site is Raspberry Pi-specific and your question is a more generic Linux issue than Raspberry Pi. – RPiAwesomeness Sep 17 '14 at 18:59

maybe if you try using a while loop, and use 'do'. Then use 'case in'.
