  1. i need ordinary program for linux progran for find biggest among 3 numbers using command line arguments… please help me…

  2. It is quite helpful to know how the argument list can be easily handled. Thank you very much !! I was totally confused to see a lot of complex scripts. But, this one really helped me.

  3. Um,
    echo -e "$a\n$b\n$c" | sort -rn | head -1
    or


    big = $a;
    [ $b -gt $big ] && big=$b;
    [ $c -gt $big ] && big=$c;
    echo $big
