i'm writing a certain script which does a specific task in a repetitive manner, i'm going to give a similar script with the same concept hope you could advise me to a better way:
cp -r /opt/$USER1/test /backup/$USER1
cp -r /opt/$USER2/test /backup/$USER2
such a command would be repeated 832 times (this is just an example)
so instead of copying the above line 832 times and appending that user's number in each "$USER"
is there a way to do it in a smarter way ?
