I need to create a bash script where a single argument is passed by the user (without using the "read" input option) at the terminal command line that creates a directory with that name, or otherwise notifies the user that such directory exists. Most of the script seems pretty straight forward, except for the input being passed to mkdir WITHOUT read input option.
Things I tried but failed:
1) Prompting the user to input a name for a directory in the terminal and then running the script again and using the history option as input.
2) Attempting to write the users input to a file, only to realize that it requires read.
Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
