Pls add an 'echo "--"' to your script so that our mailers can detect your

<pedant> Actually, that should be "-- ".

The .sig delimiter is two dashes, a space and a newline.

Dave...


then I need to insert a carriage return below the "-- " what would that be?

Well in Unix systems the newline character is a line feed not a carriage return. But echo (without a -n switch) will add it to the output. So just use 'echo "-- "' after stripping the single quotes. -- Graham Campbell <gc1111 optonline net>


I'm learning the difference now after reading up on it, but I can't find how to just insert a blank new line..i.e. look at my sig below, it's all on one line:

-- =Guy 19:24:11 up 21:48, 2 users, load average: 0.74, 0.68, 0.56

but I would like it to look like

--
=Guy
19:24:11 up 21:48, 2 users, load average: 0.74, 0.68, 0.56

I have tried \r and \n but perhaps I am missing some kind of qualifier
like $ before it or something. I apologize for my lack of scripting in
unix knowledge but promise to keep researching and become better.

Thanks.

Try:


	echo "-- " >.signature
	echo "=Guy" >>.signature
	echo `uptime` >>.signature
