How can i do it in the script?

If by script you mean "bash script", you could use the echo and read
commands to query the user. And for manipulating config files you could
use e.g. sed if the config file is a text file. Please have a look at
these URLs for more details:


If you don't mean a bash script, please clarify which script language
you are interested in.

I dont know more about scripting.I just making a .sh file in gedit it bash scripting or linux shell scripting ?
