Question syntax error on line 1, teletype

Hi There,

I have a cron script that returns the error:

syntax error on line 1, teletype

Has any one seen this, know what it is, or know's how to get rid of it?

Thanks,

Jeremy.

I can perhaps help a little bit. That error message is from the calculator program, bc. Try this:
echo + | bc
and you should get that message. Most likely, the script is trying to do a calculation with bc by echoing an expression into it. But one of the variables has an illegal number.
