I want to mean that can we put indentation sort of thing.
I have heard of a command called 'cb' for c codes.

Use the 'indent' command:

indent -kr -i8 <I>input_file</I>

See the man page, there are tons of options.

I tried man indent
got nothing.

How to use that? I use HP-UX

I have never heard of a program like cb for shell scripts. And it's no great loss. I was never impressed with cb. Ugly code always has deeper problems than poor indenting. There is only one way to get beautiful code: use very good programmers.
