http://www.unix.com – Say I have a ksh program called test.ksh which has several defined arrays inside it such as array1,array2,array3...These arrays contain strings. I also have a method in the program: Code: for x in $1 do ....(#do something) done So, when the user enteres: ./test.ksh array1, I want to loop thruogh the contents of array1 using my for loop. However, with the for loop I have, the program takes the user's entry as a string and tries to perform the actions on that. How do I make it so the program will look for the array which the user enters? (HowTos)
