Hello,

How can I run

                         if [ -e $SOME_PAH ]

on a remote machine as I do on a local?

I tried  ssh  $REMOTE_MACHINE  ls  $SOME_PATH which works fine but I think it is no reliable. Also I tried

fyn = `  ssh $REMOTE_MACHINE [ -e $SOME_PATH] $$ echo y `

but does'nt work!

any comments or advice?

thanks,

It was funny since the second statement now it is working!!!  I had left a space after and after equal sign!

However, does anybody can give me a better way?

Thanks
