Hi urbanweasel,

If you use ksh the syntax is:

if <compound list>
then <compound list>
elif <compound list>
then <compound list>
.
.
.
else <compound list>
fi

A nested loop looks something like:

while true
do
   while true
   do
       :
   done
done

A nested conditional, looks something like:

if [ condition [
then
      if [ condition ]
      then
            : # true
      else
            : # false
       fi
else
     : # false
fi
