problem in a shell based project

i have a bank project in shell script.it has a module called deposit.when i am entering an amount and commit a mistake like entering char instead of numbers and so on and repeating it, suppose 3 times,then it is rejected by amount validation code. every thing is fine upto these steps. but after 3 times if i give the correct amount then this new amount is added three times to the account rather than just once.
i dont know why
please help..


first getting old value of amount by grep command
and then adding new amount to it


i am replacing the old amount with new one using "sed" command
sed s/old/new details > file
mv file details

what to do?

break the loop when correct? Show us the loop, or are the three tries in a line? Use a loop.

thanx for the quick reply
may be you are right ? i will check it

Before making the old -> new, put a conditional check for the input with a counter.

1. use something like below for the validation
echo "asbc123" | tr -dc '[:alpha:]' #if something return its invalid

2. for each try increament the counter
check if the step1 not returning anything & step2<=3
proceed
else
do nothing

Do you have a
Code:
#!/path/to/interpreter [one-option-like-f-in-sed-or-awk ]

line at the top of the script and made it executable to the executing id?

Are the interpreters the same version?
