I'm a beginning student, so please be patient with me and don't flame me for posting what will probably seem like a very stupid question.
I'm working on a relatively basic ksh script for a 100 level UNIX class.
It's a script to duplicate rm-i with a few more bells and whistles, based on pseudocode from our professor.
Unfortunately, I was sick the day we covered the material I would need to do this project and I've been beating my head against this thing for a couple of days.
I think the problem is with the fact that I have multiple nested constructs and I don't really know all the rules for doing that, so I'm probably making some sort of faulty assumption based on my experience with C.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
Here it is, aveq comments:
