Check directory is mounted

To check that a directory is mounted in a bash script:

echo "Mounting /mnt/share..."
sudo mount /mnt/share

if ! mount | grep '/mnt/share ' > /dev/null; then
  echo "/mnt/share not mounted. Exiting."

# Do stuff with /mnt/share

echo "Unmounting /mnt/share..."
sudo umount /mnt/share

if mount | grep '/mnt/share ' > /dev/null; then
  echo "/mnt/share not unmounted"
