Cant figure out this..

It is putting a colon right before the last numbers. I need to have a / to complete the home path. Any suggestions are welcome and I appreciate this forums help.

Here is an attempt....


        echo $1

        echo $2

        export IFS
        echo $@ | while read X Y
                echo $X $Y

export IFS
while read A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q
                IFS=" "
                B1=`handle_b $B`
                B2=`first $B1`
                B3=`second $B1`
                echo $A\:$B2\\:$B3\:$C\:$D\:$E\:$F\:$G\:$H/$I
