I know this should be easy, but I cannot get it to work right.  Basically,
I have a list of items, and I need to place each one on a separate line.

Here is the script I am using.
#!/bin/sh
FILENAMES="test1 test2 test3"
FILELIST=""
for filename in ${FILENAMES}
do
        FILELIST="${FILELIST}${filename}"$'\n\r'
        echo ${FILELIST}
done

And, here is the output I am getting.
test1$\n\r
test1$\n\rtest2$\n\r
test1$\n\rtest2$\n\rtest3$\n\r

The output I would like to see is:
test1
test2
test3

Thanks in advance for your assistance.


Jay
