Hi All,

Thanks for the reply.

The code that I wrote here was just an example code and I am sure that the
original code is syntactically correct.

But the problem is that the *same* code which was running fine for years
through rcS with BB_INIT and BB_LINUXRC options (BB default shell msh)
does not work when it is put in linuxrc ( BB is not configured with
BB_INIT and BB_LINUXRC optins and the defalt shell is still msh).

This is the reason why I am wondering if a script executed through rcS
uses a different setting (like some other shell) with the proper
enviornment setup while with linuxrc it is not so.
