Just a small typo. But since it causes an error in your script I thought I'd report it to you.
The name of this script will be and will be saved in the bin folder. Make a header and add the same File and Variable assignments as in the file. This is an example of reuse. Even if they are not all used, it is quicker to copy the lot than create a new entirely specific section.
Later in the article you change the name of the script to
 case $SEL in
1) exec $NBIN/;;
2) exec $NBIN/;;
3) QUIT=1
*) continue;;
Then in the next version of the menu script it get's changed back to the original

<edit> Nevermind, I see now that there are 2 scripts, and That fact isn't real clear if you are a dummy like me just following along, trying to make this work.
