Thank you very much.
I am newbie to bash scripting.I tried your give code but it did not
work.It again did not open a new terminal and even did not ran the last
command.See the my code below.
May be i am wrong somewhere.
This is a a.sh file.
echo "what is your name"
echo "your name is $b "
screen -AdmS try sudo wget
