I have an old laptop that I use in the truck to help me
learn linux. I'm studying "Rute". In one of the examples
I used a script eg: [echo 'cat <file>'] and it works funny.
With out the script I can cat the file and it prints it
to the screen exactly as it was typed in and saved.
But done inside of the script all lines run together.
The same thing happened when I changed the script to use
"less" and "more"
It also does it on the big IBM too.
What am I missing???
