If I try to run this script:
clear echo -n "please enter a value" read num if [ "$num" -eq 8 ] then echo "you entered 8" else echo "the number you entered was not 8"
I get the following output/error:
please enter a value5
./script.sh: line 9: syntax error near unexpected token `else'
./script.sh: line 9: else'
Why wont this script run?
