Hi,

There is a shell script(bourne)
Code:
#!/bin/sh
set -x   
export _flag1=YES 
echo '_FLAG is set to        -> ' $_flag1

But it comes with the below error - 'not a valid identifier `
Code:
$ sh test2.sh
+ export _flag1=YES $'\r'
+ _flag1=YES
': not a valid identifier `
+ echo '_FLAG is set to        -> ' YES
_FLAG is set to        ->  YES

I know little unix but a noob in scripting. Could you please let me know the reason for this error.

Thanks & Regards,

Hello,
After a few hours of searching the web, I was able to spot my mistake. icon_mad.gif
The script was created on windows and FTP'ed to Unix, the carriage return \r from windows was causing the problem.
