bash script

How can i conver the following to the bash shell script?

Code:
 
#! /bin/csh

set deli = '|'
set ppattern = ""
foreach i(`cat pattern`)
set ppattern = "$i$deli$ppattern"
echo $ppattern
end
foreach j (`find . -name "*.txt"`)
egrep $ppattern $j > afile
mv -f  afile $j
        rm  -f afile
end

Code:
#!/bin/bash

#set deli = '|'
deli="|"
#set ppattern = ""
#foreach i(`cat pattern`)
for i in $(<pattern)
#set ppattern = "$i$deli$ppattern"
do ppattern="$i$deli$ppattern"
echo $ppattern
#end
done

#foreach j (`find . -name "*.txt"`)
for j in *.txt
do egrep $ppattern $j > afile
   mv -f afile $j
   rm -f afile
#end
done

seems ok, otherwise just add an -x to the shebang, and paste the output.

oh, no!! please, don't test a bash script calling it with
Code:
sh anyscript

it'll use sh as the interpreter
call it the proper way
Code:
./anyscript

let the shebang do its job
