I don't have much experience with bash scripting. What I am trying to do here might not be complicated but I just have some issues.
So I have a C script that I have to use to run on approximately 70,000 files. The script invoked certain inputs for me to enter one by one. e.g. it prompts me to enter (y/n) for yes or no 7 times one after the other. so for example, if I run the script on one file, it would prompt me to enter yes or no for something followed by multiple prompts asking (y/n). In this case there are 7 y/n prompts. It then goes on to prompt several other parameters that I enter once they are prompted e.g. c for continue, 100 for percentage etc.
All these paramters are the same for all the 70,000 files. I was wondering if someone can guide me on how to pass all these arguments to the bash script once they are prompted. Pretty basic but this is what I have so far:
var='testdir/*' for i in var; do /script $i done
the above bash commands invoke the script but prompt me to input all those parameters for each file. Note: I can not manipulate the underlying script.
