I'm not sure what you are asking. Perhaps a more specific example would help us answer your question.

I guess

#!/bin/ksh
Code:
echo "Enter a team"
        if [$1 ]
        then
        toronto = team
                while [ $1 = toronto ]
                do
                echo "Woo"
                done
        else
        echo "wooo"
fi

moderator, i guess this is what i was talking about...in my book it doesnt show you how to properly structure my previous post....this is self interest and not school work...but the book says this
Code:
if [ $1 ]
then
.........
else
....
fi

and for the while loop
Code:
whatever = no
while [ whatever = no ]
do
....
....
done

so i took it upon myself to make this up to see if it could work...but it wont....i am trying to learn this but it is confusing me...
