variable comparison problem in script


Dear all,

In my script ( run_scr.sh )I wrote the following to count the filenumber of the current directory and if total file is 6 then run show.sh file that contain 'HelloWorld'.

#!/bin/bash
morad=$(ls |wc -l)
if [${morad} -eq 6];
then
./show.sh
fi

when I run the script, it says that
[oracle@rmancat scr_test]$ ./run_scr.sh
./run_scr.sh: line 2: [6=6]: command not found

Please help me..

Regards,
Morad.

You need spaces after the [ and before the ] in if [${morad} -eq 6]

BTW, the { and } in ${morad} are not wrong but are not necessary.
