Bash confirm prompt yes/no

Content

Use an Are you sure? bash prompt for confirmation.

read -p "Are you sure you want to continue? [y/n] " -n 1 -r; echo if [[ $REPLY =~ ^[Yy]$ ]]; then     echo "Continuing..." fi

Ask the inverse by using an exclamation point to negate the if statement.

read -p "Continue? [y/n] " -n 1 -r; echo if ! [[ $REPLY =~ ^[Yy]$ ]]; then     echo "Stopped"     exit fi
