yeah its not the ;; in the case, it's not required at the end of the case statement (although it isn't a bad habit). it IS required for multiple case statements. And as far as the fi on line 62, I was just reviewing my code, and it was one of those things that I just kept looking over and I noticed. I got on here to post this as resolved. The fi was a mistake due to the copy and pasting from the other scenario of the game. I know copy/paste causes a lot of errors and I browsed it for misplaced quotation marks and various other errors, but I forgot that the whole statement that I copied was part of an if statement from the other scenario. That fi on line 62 should not have been there, there only should have been the one on line 60 but thank you so much for your prompt response to this. I've just began learning scripting and bash as a whole about 4 days ago, so I'm sure this is going to be a go-to source for help in this text based game. I'm just trying to find a way to spice it up and once I do I'm sure I'll have way more complicate code than [ICODE]case[/ICODE[, while/do and nested if statements!!

vc(1)								   User Commands							     vc(1)

vc - version control SYNOPSIS
vc [-a] [-t] [-c char] [-s] [keyword=value... keyword=value] DESCRIPTION
This command is obsolete and will be removed in the next release. The vc command copies lines from the standard input to the standard output under control of its arguments and of ``control statements'' encountered in the standard input. In the process of performing the copy operation, user-declared keywords may be replaced by their string value when they appear in plain text and/or control statements. The copying of lines from the standard input to the standard output is conditional, based on tests (in control statements) of keyword val- ues specified in control statements or as vc command arguments. A control statement is a single line beginning with a control character, except as modified by the -t keyletter (see below). The default control character is colon (:), except as modified by the -c keyletter (see below). Input lines beginning with a backslash () followed by a control character are not control lines and are copied to the standard output with the backslash removed. Lines beginning with a back- slash followed by a non-control character are copied in their entirety. A keyword is composed of 9 or less alphanumerics; the first must be alphabetic. A value is any ASCII string that can be created with ed; a numeric value is an unsigned string of digits. Keyword values may not contain blanks or tabs. Replacement of keywords by values is done whenever a keyword surrounded by control characters is encountered on a version control state- ment. The -a keyletter (see below) forces replacement of keywords in all lines of text. An uninterpreted control character may be included in a value by preceding it with . If a literal is desired, then it too must be preceded by . OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -a Forces replacement of keywords surrounded by control characters with their assigned value in all text lines and not just in vc statements. -t All characters from the beginning of a line up to and including the first tab character are ignored for the purpose of detecting a control statement. If a control statement is found, all characters up to and including the tab are discarded. -cchar Specifies a control character to be used in place of the ``:'' default. -s Silences warning messages (not error) that are normally printed on the diagnostic output. vc recognizes the following version control statements: :dcl keyword[, ..., keyword] Declare keywords. All keywords must be declared. :asg keyword=value Assign values to keywords. An asg statement overrides the assignment for the corresponding keyword on the vc command line and all pre- vious asg statements for that keyword. Keywords that are declared but are not assigned values have null values. :if condition ... :end Skip lines of the standard input. If the condition is true, all lines between the if statement and the matching end statement are copied to the standard output. If the condition is false, all intervening lines are discarded, including control statements. Note: Intervening if statements and matching end statements are recognized solely for the purpose of maintaining the proper if-end matching. The syntax of a condition is: <cond> ::= [ ``not'' ] <or> <or> ::= <and> | <and> ``|'' <or> <and> ::= <exp> | <exp> ``&'' <and> <exp> ::= ``('' <or> ``)'' | <value> <op> <value> <op> ::= ``='' | ``!='' | ``<'' | ``>'' <value> ::= <arbitrary ASCII string> | <numeric string> The available operators and their meanings are: = equal != not equal & and | or > greater than < less than () used for logical groupings not may only occur immediately after the if, and when present, inverts the value of the entire condition The > and < operate only on unsigned integer values (for example, : 012 > 12 is false). All other operators take strings as arguments (for example, : 012 != 12 is true). The precedence of the operators (from highest to lowest) is: = != > < all of equal precedence & | Parentheses may be used to alter the order of precedence. Values must be separated from operators or parentheses by at least one blank or tab. ::text Replace keywords on lines that are copied to the standard output. The two leading control characters are removed, and keywords sur- rounded by control characters in text are replaced by their value before the line is copied to the output file. This action is indepen- dent of the -a keyletter. :on :off Turn on or off keyword replacement on all lines. :ctl char Change the control character to char. :msg message Print message on the diagnostic output. :err message Print message followed by: ERROR: err statement on line ... (915) on the diagnostic output. vc halts execution, and returns an exit code of 1. ATTRIBUTES
