Possibly I've missed the context for this if it's a new thread resulting 
from a previous one (I am not up-to-date on this list).

The error seems pretty self-explanatory.  Bash expected more input when it 
reached the end.

I would expect that it was either looking for a closing quote (single or 
double) or a closing bracket of some sort.

what are you trying to do?
