Hi Experts,

I am trying to write a script that determines if the word 'days' is present in the output from the 'uptime' command.

I am very new to scripting and cannot find a way to do it.

Thanks in advance.

if uptime | grep -q "days"; then
    echo "'days' present in the output from 'uptime'"
         else
             echo "'days' NOT present in the output from 'uptime'"
fi
