Hi Scott,

I just try your code edit.
But it seems like the script will run "Number_Count_Program" if I key in something like "./ A+B B+C"?

What I prefer is "Number_Count_Program" is run only when both first and second argument don't have any "+".
If either first or second or both got "+", I will prefer it run "Number_Split_Program".

Kindly correct me if I was wrong.
