csh script doubt


I need to execute output one command in csh.



set smal = "set count = 1"
grep "Tot" in_file | sed "s/Tot/$smal/g"

In the above script, i have set the smal variale as "set count = 1".

My desired output like:

$echo count

should show as 1.

How to set the variable's variable into set command...

Thanks in advance,

What are you trying to achieve exactly?

What you have done there is store the string 'set count = 1' in the variable 'smal'. You haven't declared 'count' as a variable hence why you cannot echo the value of 'count'.
