NOTE : the values should be stuffed one by one using a loop and not on a whole seperated by commas.

Something like this should help you

for (( x=1 ; x <= 10; x++;)
do
   array[$x] = $x;
done

array[3] =string;

echo ${array[3]};

Okay,
This is where I have reached uptil yet .

All you need to know is that I made an array and that I need to access it's variables which i'm unable to .
Pls help.


#!/usr/bin/ksh
#CREATE AN ARRAY TO STORE OWNERS TO COMPARE
set -A owners `ls -lR "${1}" 2>/dev/null | sed 1d | awk '{print $3}' | sort | uniq`

#LOOP OVER THE ARRAY TO GET THE OWNERS ONE BY ONE TO COMPARE
i=0
while [ $i -lt ${#owners[*]} ]
do
        `ls -lsR "${1}" | awk '/$owners[$i]/ {disk_usage += $6} END {print $owners[$i], " : ", 1*disk_usage, " MB"}'`

        ((i=i+1))
done

var="${arr_name[$i]}"

as I look at your awk, I guess that the variables you use in awk should be those from your (k)shell, then you need to write that like:
   ls -lsR "${1}" | awk '/'$owners[$i]'/ {disk_usage += $6} END {print '$owners[$i]', " : ", 1*disk_usage, " MB"}'
