no space : What this means?

movePSOrders.sh[35]: no space

for file in $(find $INPUTDIR -type f -mtime +2) ; do
#echo $file
if test -f $file; then
mv $file $OUTPURDIR
fi
done


Same code is working in other env,
I don't know why I am getting

movePSOrders.sh[35]: no space

redundent check

first, your code is redundant..
find is finding files and you are again checking if it is a file

the shorter one will be

find $INPURDIR -type f -mtime +2 -exec mv {} $OUTPUTDIR \;


cheers,
