Hi,

I have a requirement to write a schell script where I should check existence of the file "aaa.csv" in a directory.

It should be like if the file exist it should echo "file exist" else "file do not exist"

The file is a csv file

Please do the needful

Regards,
Dhivya

file exist


Hi Mahesh,

Thanks that worked out.

But now a little modification i would require to implement in this.

Instead of echo i need to execute one shell script if the file exist like below

[ -f nOall.lst ] && ./rr.sh || echo "file do not exist"

Thanks in advance

Awaiting for the response
Dhivya
