bash line file output

Hi

I have the following three BASH line commands


mkdir /home/**/**/$username
echo $username >>/home/**/**/$username/$username
echo $password >>/home/**/**/$username/$username


That creates a directory from the variable $username [ read in from user in code above ] and then prints the $username & $password variables into a file called $username.

The data in the file is formated like below:

$username
$password

How can I get it so that it is formated like the next example below:

Username = $username
Password = $password


Thanks for any help.

Never mind, answered my own question:

mkdir /home/**/**/$username
echo "Username: $username" >>/home/**/**/$username/$username
echo "Password: $password" >>/home/**/**/$username/$username

Silly schoolboy error.
