I need to create a script that will create a file and dump formatted text into it. I need to run the script with an argument which will be the filename.

echo "Hello world" > ../directory/$arg1.txt

I need the text added to the file to be like:
class Arg1 {
public function x() {

Can anybody help me create a script to do this?

How about you try and write it and come back when you have a specific issue?

The example you posted really isn't that far off.

How did you solve the issue?

I know how to do this, but the principle of that forum is to share solutions to each other.
