This is a "homework" type question (that's been asked before!)

Have you ever programmed in C or C++? It's much easier moving from
those to shell programming. Good luck.

You can use arrays in Shell scripts as in C programs.
eg.
You can use a[2]="test"
See "man page" for ksh for more details

btw are u using sh? or bash?
   well there some basic loops u can use, for loops, while loop, until loop.

 syntax,

     for var in [list of strings]
        do
        done

     while [condition]
        do
        done

     until [condition]
        do
        done

then there the if syntax is if [condition]

 to use x++

u can x = `expr x + 1`;
then test it with if [x=0] like that easy?

from those structures i guess u could already make a bubble sort..:) happy coding.. for help on syntax write me at misguided@hotmail.com
