Error running a script in nohup mode

running this script in normal mode, no error occours



while true

COUNT=$(tail -2500 /log/file.log | grep -i "error" | wc -l)

   if [ ${COUNT} -gt 0 ]; then

         echo "$BODY" | mailx -s "$SUBJECT" "$ADDRESSES"


sleep 30


instead, running the same script in nohup mode, occours the following error:
" ./script.ksh: syntax error at line 17: `COUNT=$' unexpected

Can you set xtrace / verbose, run the script and post the output?
