# Run your renamed shell script for confirmation by issuing:<br><span style="color:blue;font-weight:bold;font-family:courier;">./hello.bash</span><br><br>
# Enter the following linux command to return to your Bash shell: <span style="color:blue;font-weight:bold;font-family:courier;">exit</span><br><br>Let's use some ENVIRONMENT variables in our Bash Shell script.<br><br># Issue the following Linux command to confirm you have returned to the Bash shell: <span style="color:blue;font-weight:bold;font-family:courier;">echo $SHELL</span><br><br>Let's use some ENVIRONMENT variables in our Bash Shell script.<br><br>
# Use a text editor to edit the shell script called '''hello.bash'''<br><br>
