Within a shell program (using bash), is it possible to read
in a file line by line, e.g. if I have a file days.txt:
is it possible to read in each line separately and store the
data in a variable?
read day < days.txt
gives me the first line, but how do I get it to read in the
following lines, one at a time?
Thanks in advance,
