To insert Ctrl+D into a Linux script, you can use the echo command combined with a here-document. Here is an example of how you can insert Ctrl+D into a script:

1
2
3
4
5
6
#!/bin/bash

# Using echo and a here-document to insert Ctrl+D
echo "This is some text."
echo "Press Ctrl+D to exit"
echo "Ctrl+D" 


When you run this script and reach the line with Ctrl+D without quotes, you can press Ctrl+D on your keyboard to signal the end of input or exit the script. This will simulate pressing Ctrl+D within the script itself.
