Can you give more information? What's in the file? Are you writing a script? (if so, in what shell?) What's the OS and version?

If you are trying to input manually from a script, check the man page on the read command.

If you are trying to get those numbers into a file echo "1" >> filename ; echo "2" >> filename...(check man page on a loop function like for or while)

basically i have a file with test result from an experiment each test has 5 results and they each have different properties that i want outputted on the same line.

The thing is i can output the experiment ids ok


but cant get the 5 results underneath each id.

Im using unix and am writing the script in a bourne shell.

You will need to post the script (or the portions dealing with the problem).

So where is the script?

(Does this seem like a course problem to any of you? I get the feeling someone is wanting me to write their script for them.)

I think possibly so... If the poster has a script, and posts it looking for someone to help troubleshoot, I would, but I wouldn't post example code in this case, unless it was very general.
