For me, the "set -v" is the problem. Removing that the script works.

With -v
Code:
 > ./TestScr /home/user/work/infile /home/user/work/outfile
#set -x on
ScrName=`basename ${0}`
NOW=`date`
echo ${1}
on
echo ${2}

if [ $# -ne 2 ]
then
echo " ${NOW} ${ScrName} : Invalid Parameter list..."
echo " ${NOW} ${ScrName} : Script needs TWO parameters"
echo " ${NOW} ${ScrName} : Param1--Input file path"
echo " ${NOW} ${ScrName} : Param2--Output file path"
exit 1
fi

 Thu Jul 23 10:23:07 DFT 2009 T : Param1--Input file path

> echo $?
1

Without -v:
Code:
> ./TestScr /home/user/work/infile /home/user/work/outfile
/home/user/work/infile
/home/user/work/outfile
OK

> echo $?
0
