To print a .sh file in Linux, you can use the "cat" or "less" command. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open a terminal in Linux.
  2. Use the "cat" command followed by the file name to print the contents of the .sh file directly to the terminal. For example: cat filename.sh This will display the entire contents of the .sh file on the terminal.
  3. Alternatively, you can use the "less" command to view the file page by page. This can be useful for larger .sh files. For example: less filename.sh This will open the .sh file in the "less" viewer, where you can scroll through the file using your arrow keys.


These commands will help you view the contents of .sh files directly on the terminal, but keep in mind that .sh files are typically scripts and not meant to be printed like a document file.

Additionally, if you want to print the content of a .sh file to a physical printer, you can use the "lp" command in Linux along with the appropriate printer name.


Here's how you can print a .sh file using the "lp" command:

  1. Open a terminal in Linux.
  2. Use the following command format to print the .sh file:
1
lp -d printer_name filename.sh


Replace "printer_name" with the name of your printer and "filename.sh" with the name of the .sh file you want to print.


For example, if your printer is named "MyPrinter" and the .sh file you want to print is "myscript.sh", you would use the following command:

1
lp -d MyPrinter myscript.sh


This command will send the content of the .sh file to the specified printer for printing. Make sure your printer is properly set up and connected to your Linux system before attempting to print.
