@red roses: please use a better title in the future, since titles as help me are ignored from the majority of LQ users. Moreover they don't contain any useful keyword for the LQ search tool. This time I've edited the title for you. Furthermore, please consider giving more details about what you're trying to achieve and about the shell are you using.
