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.

@alex: Thanks. I thought I had tested that on the command line, but I did it wrong. I changed the example.

comment Adding numbers from the result of a grep
The problem there is your expression. with `totalErrors=${errors}+${totalErrors}, you're creating a string. You can do the same trick: echo both numbers as a list and use awk to sum them, or you can do it the bash way.
