Run text file as commands in Bash

0 votes

If I have a text file with a separate command on each line how would I make the terminal run each line as a command? I just don't want to have to copy and paste 1 line at a time. It doesn't HAVE to be a text file... It can be any kind of file that will work.

example.txt:

sudo command 1 sudo command 2 sudo command 3
