one quick clarification, my script 2 is actually a unix command that I run from within my main script, i put it this way to reduce complexity
but regardless for testing this I actually put this command in script2.sh but it seems script2 was being fed as a string and not executing (i'm running this in macosx 10.5.6 terminal)

should I concatenate each line of script2 output and the command at the front then do an eval? how else would you do it, efficiency is my priority

That's one of the reasons why I prefer using $(cmd) instead of `cmd` !
