Generating line number

Hi,

I am generating a file through some Datastage commands:


cat $TempDir/stage.txt |while read line
do
stagename=`echo $line`
dsjob -llinks $proj $jobname $stagename 2>/dev/null >> $TempDir/LinkName.txt

Now i have to assign the number to the columns generated in Linkname.txt file..How can i achieve this?

Thanks in Advance!
