MySQL How can I use the arrays ?

Hi all,

I have a file test1.txt with the below contents

I tried printing these values using arrays.

Script tried :
set -A array1 `cat test1.txt`
while [ $i -lt $count ]
  echo "element of array $array1[$i]"

Output should be :
element of array abc
element of array def
element of array ghj
element of array xyz

Now my questions areSmilie
1) Is my logic correct?
2)Can we use arrays this way?
3)If no,how can this be done?

You can but just increment you $i variable.

And put your array elements in braces.
