Copy a variable in a shell script (Linux)… here is a solution to the problem.
Copy a variable in a shell script (Linux)
How do I copy one variable to another in a shell script?
Assuming the user passes
in $1, how do you copy their value to another variable?
I’m assuming it looks like this….
cp $1 $2 echo "Copied value: $2"
cp is used to
copy files and directories. To define a variable, you simply use the following syntax:
$ cat a echo "var v=$v" v=$1 echo "var v=$v" $ ./a 23 <---- we execute the script var v= <---- the value is not set var v=23 <---- the value is already set
