Humm, how would one translate this to that?

# make this run as gene! Does
# make sure the database is free
killall fetchmail
# wait for the spamd pipes to drain
sleep 20
# do this dastardly deed
sa-learn --ham /home/gene/Mail/ham/cur
sa-learn --ham /home/gene/Mail/coco/cur
sa-learn --ham /home/gene/Mail/Xorg/cur
sa-learn --spam /home/gene/Mail/spam/cur
# now, this stuff is trash, 24 hours old, kill it.
rm -f /home/gene/Mail/spam-hold/cur/*
# And move todays catch into Mail/spam-hold/cur for a 24 hour period
# so I can retrieve it the next day if needed.
mv /home/gene/Mail/spam/cur/* /home/gene/Mail/spam-hold/cur/
# Note, I leave the ham for moving where it really goes by hand
# and restore fetchmail but let the disks synch first
sleep 6
/usr/bin/fetchmail -d 120 --fetchmailrc /home/gene/.fetchmailrc

Simple little script, usually takes about a minute to run. cron sends me 
an email. I delete it unless there has been an error.
