If loop in one line

 

I have been using if conditions in shell script from long time as shown below:

if [ CONDITION ]
then
some commands here.
fi

But when we write if condition as a one liner it’s bit tricky. We need to specify “;”  in right places.

Following is an example to use if as one liner:

$ if [ condition ]; then echo "some function here"; fi
