Question looping question

I am writing a simple script and want to keep the user in a fuction until they are ready to get out. For some (probably stupid) reason, it doesn't seem to be working. You guys see anything that I'm overlooking?


{until [ $QUIT = 'N' ]
echo 'run another? \c'
read $QUIT
return 0
} #crsd ()

Try "read QUIT" rather than "read $QUIT".
