I have a list of names in a list (say name.txt) which has the set of name lists one by one.
babu praveen kamal sneha
This name will be passed as run time argument $1 in my bash script.
Now I have to do a match to check if the inputted name is in my list or not.
If it’s not there then I will print saying invalid name and exit. Can you help me with this?
I have tried this with
if [[ "$1" != "babu" || "$1" != "praveen" || "$1" != "kamal" ... ]]; then exit fi
but this doesn’t look good professionally.
Is there any other simple and decent way to achieve this?
