It is not supporting ksh? Where did you read that?

echo "Some menue"

PS3="Choose a number: "

select CHOICE in one two three four quit
  case $CHOICE in
        one)    echo 1;;
        two)    echo 2;;
        three)  echo 3;;
        four)   echo 4;;
        quit)   exit ;;
        *)  echo "\nTry again\n";;

exit 0

2) two
3) three
4) four
5) quit

root@isau02:/data/tmp/testfeld> file ./mach.ksh.x
./mach.ksh.x: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.1, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.4.1, stripped

Seems it supports ksh. I used "select" which is not available in bash afaik.

Hi Zaxxon ,

Thanks For the Reply.. as i said i can't go for Shc as it is not installed in my server . I am getting error message when i use shc.
Sorry for my misinterpretation that it is not supported by ksh.Since it is not installed in my server i thought wrong.
# 6  
Yes I saw that you don't have it installed. But showing it works with ksh could have made you installing/compiling it or something so.. Smilie
I know no alternative. Maybe write it in perl and compile it with perlcc or directly in C. Maybe someone else comes up with another suggestion.
