There's no need to call ls at all. The shell can expand wildcards just fine by itself: for file in * do echo $file md5 $file done but in your case, since md5 can take multiple filenames on its commandline and prints the filename in its output: md5 * will suffice. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
