I want to make a script that can run diffent commands, like
command start

I started with the following code but now I am stuck.

Jeffeny

##### BEGIN ######

funct_param(){

# echo "$SWITCH"

if [ $SWITCH =  ]
then        
echo "Usage: command start | stop"
        exit 1
fi

if [ $SWITCH = start ]
then
        echo "start"
        exit 1
fi

if [ $SWITCH = stop ]
then
        echo "stop"
        exit 1
fi


}


##### MAIN ######

SWITCH=$1

       funct_param

##### END ######

Try this:

#!/bin/ksh
##### BEGIN ######

funct_param(){

if [ "$SWITCH" = "" ]
then
       echo "Usage: command start | stop"
       return 1
elif [ $SWITCH = start ]
then
       echo "Execute: start"
       $SWITCH
       return 0
elif [ $SWITCH = stop ]
then
       echo "Execute: stop"
       $SWITCH
       return 0
fi
return 0
}


##### MAIN ######

SWITCH=$1

funct_param
if [ $? -ne 0 ]
then
       echo "Command not executed"
       exit 1
fi
exit 0
##### END ######
