I've grown up with computers around me my whole life. I started programming when I was a kid, and stuck with it ever since. I came across Linux around 1999 and have enjoyed working with it ever since.

For a job, I get to write software that runs on embedded Linux devices. I do everything from working on low-level drivers to writing shell scripts and even web apps.

comment Brackets in if condition: why am I getting syntax errors without whitespace?
@goldilocks, yes, that is my preferred style. The reason it's unusual is because he is not doing that.

comment Brackets in if condition: why am I getting syntax errors without whitespace?
The given answers are correct; you need whitespace after [. Additionally, look into the elif statement; it will help you clean things up. Also, the semicolons after the if statements are not necessary, but are also not incorrect, just strange.

Is it suitable to remove all \n characters, or is there a special case when a \n is not desired?
