I have some unique requirement, where I need to do something like this -
1. My script takes the argument as file name which is absolute filename.
2. I need to separate the filename and directory from this absolute file name for the further processing.

Any suggestions -

#!/bin/bash
echo "Enter any file name or file path"
read fspec
filename="${fspec##*/}"
echo $filename
dirname="${fspec%/*}"
echo $dirname

Try this.

if [[ "$IPv6ADDR"=~"^:?([a-fA-F0-9]{1,4}(:|.)?){0,8}(:|::)?([a-fA-F0-9]{1,4}(:|.)?){0,8}$" ]]; then
  echo "valid ipv6 addr"
  break;
else
