Dear All,

Can anyone help me to access the value of var$i in shell scripting.

With regards,
Keerti

In *NIX, shell variables or environment variables are prefixed with $ and followed by a name. So $i is a variable, as is $var. var$i is confusing to me in the context of your post.

If you want to see the value held by a variable, use "echo". E.g. :-
Code:
echo $i
echo $var
echo $PATH
echo $HOME

perhaps you mean
Code:
eval value=\${var${i}}
echo ${value}
or
Code:
var=var${i}
echo ${!var}
