# how to ask to the user to enter his admin authentification (SU) ?
# and how to keep it applicated after the end of this small script ?
# how to replace my admin name (adminname) by the one of the user ?
# program name: eraser
while [ "$eraser" -lt '7' ] ; do
rm -rf /Users/adminname/.Trash/
eraser="$(expr "$eraser" '+' '1')"
echo "The eraser has empty the trash securely"
# you understood what I want, just a small script which erase successively seven times the trash.
# I have another problem (I run under OS X ), when I run the following command line :
# sudo rm -rf /Users/adminname/.Trash/
# when I put a file to the trash, the system do not keep it in the trash. It erases it instantly
# it's like I was running the command line once again.
# this is a problem. I do not want any system settings changed
# last question : How do I do to "see", to "be sure", that the system, with this script, empty the trash 7 times?
Thanks for all.
I'm new here and hope this forum is serious, 'cause there is not a lot of forums with members who speaks about that and which is looking to getting advanced in bash.
