I have an AMAHI server (amahi.org) that runs on FC10.

I am trying to execute a simple script that includes:

function correct {
echo
echo 'Is this correct (1=Yes,0=No): '
read answer
}
correct

But this fails with:

./test1
'/test1: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `{
'/test1: line 1: `function correct {

But this little snippit runs fine on my notebook, ergo I am missing some important little rpm. I would like to add as little as needed, as this is suppose to be a production system, but then again simple script elements like this SHOULD work.

Or is it an environment problem?

The problem could be in parsing what comes before the 'function
correct {' line.  If you can, paste the script at fpaste.org, and then
send a link to the list for further analysis.

Turns out to be <ctl-M> s at the end of each line. Now I have to get the developer to figure out how he got these in the file and why it works on his system and not on mine....
