user defined variable : varname=valueofvar
echo my name is $name

variable naming:not starting with number and no special characters except _

reading user input: read
echo enter name
read name
echo hello $name
echo enter age and sex
read name1 name2 name3
echo  $name1 $name2 $name3

read -p 'what is your user name: ' u_name #input with prompt

read -a names
echo ${names[0]} ${names[1] }

#prints number of arguments passed

 IF- Else- ELseif

if [ condition ]

if [$count -lt 3 ]
echo its less than 3

integer comparision

-eq =equal to
-ne =not equal to
-gt =greater than
-ge = greater tahn equal to
-lt = less than
-le = less than equal to

to use ==,!=,<,<=,>,>= we need double (()) parenthesis

example: if (($var<10 p="">
string comparision
= :equal to [ "$a" = "$b" ]
== :equal to [ "$a" == "$b" ]
!= :not equal [ "$a " !=  "$b" ]
<:less a="" alphabetical="" ascii="" b="" br="" in="" nbsp="" order="" than="">
>:greater than in ascii order  [["$a" > "$b"]]
-z :is null string

# using angle brackets in string needs double [[]] parenthesis

else and elseif condition 

if [ conditiion ]
elif [ condition ]
<10 p="">
<10 p="">

<10 p="">
echo -e "enter the name of file: \c"
<10 p="">read file_name
<10 p="">if [ -e $file_name ] 
<10 p="">then 
<10 p="">echo "file found"
<10 p="">else 
<10 p="">echo "file not found"
<10 p="">fi

<10 p="">-e enables escape sequence interpretation   
<10 p="">\c keep cursor in same line
