well.....if i have a file with 10k line...
i want to rename each line in recursive mode...(while loop)?!
form 000,001...999,000,001.....999....etc....

Must i do something like this :

Code:
echo $number+`echo original | cut -c4-` >> newfile

this line by line method will take me one day to complete....
can someone suggest a better way?

I would go with:
Code:
#! /usr/bin/ksh
typeset -Z3 n=0
while read line ; do
      print -r - "${n}${line#???}"
      ((n=n+1))
      ((n>999)) && n=0
done
exit 0
