How to capture status code and echo a message

I guess you call your function like this:


# From your question it is a character 'o', if so then use the below condition
if [ "$result" = "o" ]
Just in case you meant the number 0 (zero) then use the below condition
if [ $result -eq 0 ]
echo "....."
echo "....."

BTW, can you tell me how to post a new question in this forum. I appear too dumb as I spent already 15 mins finding the place for submitting questions.

Nanu_Manju: when you enter a forum, like Shell Programming and Scripting - The UNIX Forums, there's a "New Thread" button above the list of "Threads in Forum", and one below the list too.

The output will be zero lines if there are no files, so wouldn't it suffice just to discard the error message?

ls -lrt *20080430 2>/dev/null | wc -l

PS. Please start a new thread for a new question.
