Can someone help me with a simple bash script to create a file 'test.txt' and write variables to it.
Variable1=10.2.4.1
Variable2=10.2.4.2
Variable3=10.2.4.3
Variable4=10.2.4.4
and then write it to the txt file with a : delimited format. It will always be just one line. It would be like this:
10.2.4.1:10.2.4.2:10.2.4.3:10.2.4.4
The last thing it has to do is place carriage returns on the end of each line so its in windows txt format.

I guess this could be done with sed, but not sure how. Thanks for any help.

To have windows end of line characters, you need to do

echo -e "$Variable1:$Variable2:$Variable3:$Variable4\r" >test.txt

You may or may not need the -e flag depending on your Unix flavour.
