a simple tutorial for bash scripting users would be very nice and usefull . why do i need this ? i would like to create an installer and i would like to check some things ... something like (will do it in php , sorry ) :

$user = $USERNAME;
if($user != 'root')
{
echo 'you need administrative rights to install this!';
exit;
}
else
{
$get1 = wget http://some_link/;
if(!$get1)
{
echo 'could not download package $get1';
echo 'continue ?'
read answer;
if($answer == y)
{
