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

did you use ` ` quotes as omafarid specified,
or did you instead try to type ' ' quotes when you tried it?

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