Each Row & Each Column of file into a Variable X and Y

If you have a file with two columns

File.txt

Abc 123
Bhcs 27384
Bcddd 22421
Axde 234

And you want to each value from each row each colum into a variable X and Y. For example:
X=Abc Y=123 and use those values in some function like
Add = $X , $Y.

So for each x value and y value , you need to use these values for the function and then go to next value of x and y.

Answer:-

#! /bin/bash
cat “File.txt” | while read a b

echo $a
done
