Re: Bash - IF Statement
It didn't matter if I believed what I read on the internet or not, I couldn't
get the IF-statement to work, and when I queried a unix user, he wasn't sure

was finalized and complete before schulman's detour, and this small thread
doesn't detract from this forum's large corpus.
