hello,
   can someone help figure out what's wrong with these statements? I'm trying to compare correct format of phone numbers and it seems to not detecting the "-"

set phnum = ""
set test = 0
while ($test == 0)
        if("$phonenum" =~ [0-9][0-9][0-9][-][0-9][0-9][0-9][-][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]) then
                  break
          else
                 echo "Need to enter phone number in correct forma pleaset"
                   set phonenum = "$<"
         endif
end
