How to read the nth character from the line.?

I have Index Line and I tried to get the 9th character from the file and to check the character is "|" or not.
Shell Scripting.

Sample Index file.


# 2  
FIRSTLINE=`head -n 1 $indexFile

   while read -r line
   id = cut -c 9 $FIRSTLINE
   echo $id 
done < "$indexFile"

Welcome to the forum.

You've been told twice already to
- follow the rules.
- post in an adequate forum - certainly not "Post Here to Contact Site Administrators and Moderators".
- post homework ONLY in and fill in the form completely.
- use code tags

Sorry, this thread is closed again.
