Here is a problem in calling the methods being inside in another shell script program

can any one please tell me how to call a method which is there in another shell script is there any command to import that shell script file in my current program?

The reason why i am doing this thing is i am writing more frequenty used methods in one palce (utility.sh) file

so here i want to call the methods when ever i require to use it in other program

Stefan is my first name, just call me Stefan.

When you source a file which contains just functions, not code calling these functions, they are available for execution by your script.

utils.sh:

useutils.sh sources utils.sh and calls the functions:

output:
