I make a simple c file which takes input from user and then display it. I am trying to make a bash script in which i predefined those input and then run the c program inside bash and the c program takes the input which i have defined (i.e. user don't need to enter the input)

Here is the code.

void main()
char ch;
int num;
printf("Enter a single character:\n");
scanf("%c", &ch);
printf("Enter any number:\n");
scanf("%d", &num);

printf("You type charachter %c\n", ch);
printf("You type number %d\n", num);

And here is the bash file




./test < $ch $num
