RE: Interactive Script works different than File Script

Hmmm..  I get the expected behavior with 'GNU bash, version 1.14.7(1)'
the results are the same both interactive and scripted

Try this:
echo ${OPENJMS_HOME}/lib

I've found that surrounding variable names with curly brackets helps
to distinguish them.

I have been tearing my hair out for days tring to solve this problem
and I have tried all my available avenues. I hope you can and will
help.

When I use the following in a script

#! /bin/sh
OPENJMS_HOME="/usr/java/openjms-0.7"
echo $OPENJMS_HOME/lib



I get the following output  "/lib/java/openjms-0.7"

In other words the first 4 characters of the variable are replaced by
the string following the variable in the echo command

I would have expected "="/usr/java/openjms-0.7/lib" which is what I
get when I execute this interactively.


The Version number is 1.14.7(1)[0]
