Ksh Associating scripts

Im writing a script in the Ksh, as the title suggests.

OK so im sincerely tring to be lazy. Im trying to make a script that will use another file as a sort of variable library

So basically i dont need to include the variables themselves, just want to make a reference to the file, so the shell will read it. understand the variables. And all i need to do is simply reference them

So as an example

File
------
A=I
B=Love
C=YOU

------------------
Ksh Script

Echo "$A"
I
Echo "$B"
LOVE
Echo "$C"
You


Is there an #Include File or something equivelant that will work?

It is called sourcing a file. Assume the file whose variables you need is called var.sh
Code:
#!/bin/ksh
.  /path/to/var.sh

That is a dot followed by a space then the file specification

ok so just for clarification The Green "S" will represent a "Space"


.s/path/to/file/var.sh


Did i understand correctly?
