- "while" and "for" loops use syntax "for item in items; do action; done".
- "case" statements use syntax "case string in substring0) action;; substring1) action;; esac".
- Group your choices in one case statement. In this case a "select" menu could be easier.
- "while test loop do clear" makes no sense. Printing a message should make it more clear what you've done.
- If you have errors first try debugging the script as 'sh -evx scriptname'. If that doesn't give you ideas read a tutorial to understand better.
