Please Dont post a new post unless until it is a new item , I think you posted this problem earlier, It will be easy if you will send it in the same link ..

Otherwise nobody is going to understand what is this
Code:
foreach var ($argv)
         @sum = $sum + $var[/QUOTE]

its a csh script or ksh script or sh script you are trying .. SO please see your last thread regarding this for your answer..

Yes I posted the whole problem before and you gave me an answer but i want to use my own code. I dont want to use someone elses code, I am just having trouble figuring out the problem with the foreach loop and seeing if anyone here has any ideas.

GO with your OWN code
Code:
foreach var ( $input )
@sum = $sum + $input
end

And please post some new thread before reading Rules and Regulation of this forum..Don't cofuse us ..
