Arrays in Korn Shell...?

Hello All,

I have to write a script and it has to be in Korn Shell....

It goes like this.....

print "${array1[*]}"

I get:


Now I want to grab the 2nd and 3rd values (TWO THREE) and give to a variable:

array_values2and3="${array[1]} , ${array[2]}"

print "$array_values2and3"

and I get:


But it doesn't work.....I get just the comma.

I also tried:

array_values2and3="${#array[1]} , ${#array[2]}"

But nothing came up....

Any thoughts on how I can grab those two array values and assign them to the $array_values2and3 variable ???

Firstlly, I think you have a typo. You are showing values for variable "array1" and then trying to fetch values of from "array".

Secondly, the logic works for me:

/home/soumen/tmp > cat
for i in hello world how are you ; do
        let j=j+1
echo "Array : ${array[*]}"
val="${array[1]} , ${array[2]}"
echo "val : $val"
/home/soumen/tmp > ksh
Array : hello world how are you
val : hello , world
/home/soumen/tmp >
