I am a new user to unix that is trying to do a simple script in bash that will unzip several files in the location that I list. I can't figure out why it keeps crashing. I'm inserting the script below. I hope to later move the old .tar.7z zipped files into another directory (hence my creating the new directory in the script below), but I am just trying to get the main part working first.
#!~/bash # My program to try to unzip several files with ending of tar.7z # I have inserted the ability to enter the directory where you want this to be done echo "What file location is required for unzipping?" read dirloc cd $dirloc mkdir oldzippedfiles for directory in $dirloc do if [ $directory=*.tar.7z ] then cat $directory | 7za x -an -txz -si -so | tar -xf - fi done echo "unzipping of file is complete" exit 0
