Maybe ...


for ((X=1; X<=4; X++))
  if [ -f "file$X" ]
    echo "file$X exists"
    echo "file$X missing"

exit 0

[house@leonov] ls file*
file0  file1  file3  file4  file5
[house@leonov] bash code.bash
file1 exists
file2 missing
file3 exists
file4 exists

Another approach (avoiding ksh93 as O/P has basic Solaris).

for SUFFIX in "01" "02" "03" "04"
        if [ ! -f "${FILENAME}" ]
                echo "Error: instance of ${PREFIX} missing"
echo "4 of 4 instances of ${PREFIX} found"

hi , I tried the following

while read line;
do [[ -e "$line" ]] && rvst_cntr=$rvst_cntr+1; done < file_list.txt
echo "$rvst_cntr of 4 files found "

file_list.txt contains list of files

The o/p is coming as 0+1+1 of 4 files found

can't get the addn part done ...

Pls suggest

Please post sample input and sample output making it clear whether you are checking whether files exist in the current directory or whether you are checking whether file names are contained in a file called file_list.txt ... or both?

Reference your counting problem, compared with zaxxon post where is your "let" ?
