getting values from variable in a loop

I have a set of variables:

And I'm trying to use the following loop

for (( i = 0; i <= 10; i++ ))

I'm trying the get the values from my set of variable to make directories, but I can't seem the get those value from temp. I've tried ${$temp}, and a lot of combinations of brackets and quotes, if there a way of doing this? Thank you.

First glance, you have temp=f$one ($1), instead of temp=f$eye (f$i)

my bad, i meant to post it with an "i", but the question still stands, do you have any suggestions?

well, yeah Smilie
1.- proof read before you post, and use code tags.
2.- post the entire script. The way it is, I don't know what shell you are using (figured out it is bash, because that syntax doesn't work in korn) and I have no idea what you are doing after declaring temp.
Anyway, here's a better solution using arrays in korn:

# cat tester

set -A FOLDERS folder1 folder2 folder3 folderwhatever
for x in $(echo ${FOLDERS[@]}); do
echo $x

# ./tester
