my concern is that the script is not giving 7 as input to the inside the script while running.

echo 7 is not working ..

---------- Post updated at 10:12 AM ---------- Previous update was at 08:01 AM ----------

first of all the script " start_up " should take option 7 automatically then it should take "c" so many times. When i am running the above script it is not taking option 7 automatically.. that mean " echo 7 " is not working or any small thing i am missing .. i am confused .. please any help ?

Untested:
Code:
counted_loop() { # TIMES CHAR
# Prints TIMES and then loops 
# to print CHAR that many TIMES
    C=0
    start_up<<EOF
$1
$(while [$C -lt $1 ];do echo $2;((C++));done)
EOF
}
### START IT ###
counted_loop 7 c
