  1. get rid of the ` in your expr

    for instance, if you wanted to get the length of s3 in len, you;d do

    len= expr length $s3
    echo $len
    HTH
    ..

  2. Why doesn’t this work?????

    #!/bin/sh
    echo “Enter first string:”
    read s1
    echo “Enter second string:”
    read s2
    s3=$s1$s2
    len=echo $s3 | wc -c
    len=expr $len - 1
    echo “Concatenated string is $s3 of length $len “

  3. what is length in the expression “len=$(expr length $OUT)”
    did you write that function or SHELL has that function?
