How to give password in shell script?
  • ```bash
  • #!bin/sh
  • cd qpixel
  • sudo systemctl enable mysql
  • mysql -u root -p
  • rails s
  • ```
  • That's my bash script. When it will run `mysql -u root -p` it will ask for password. So, I have to print my password. But, I had tried with `echo` `print` none of them works. How can I input password?
