    guys I truly need the solution of this, with some explanation !

    script (called phone) that creates a simple telephone list (create an empty file called “phonlist” in home directory) . Each line in this file consist of two fields name and the phone number, the script should do the following:
    When user types the command : “phone new <name> <number>” this will add new record (name,number) to the list.
    When user type command: “phone <name>” then the script should search in the file “phonelist” and gets the phone number and display the result.

    and what does these commands do:

    [[ -z $user ]]

    --

    grep

    --
    -eq 1 0
    --

    [[ `grep -c $user` -eq 1 ]]

    --

    thanks

    I don't have a solution ready for you, but you can read through this guide: http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/

    Afterwards you'll be a bash scripting genius. :)

    The first tests if $user veriable is empty,

    The second is invalid

    The third tests if the number of characters in $user variable has more one character.

    And finally i will write you a quick script when i have some time on my hands
