First, how to get a listing/output to stdout from the 1st script ? I
just tried to run the script as it is after giving it executable
rights and got the following -
./get-new.sh: 1: ./get-new.sh: cannot open !DOCTYPE: No such file
./get-new.sh: 1: ./get-new.sh: html: not found
./get-new.sh: 3: ./get-new.sh: Syntax error: newline unexpected
Look forward to know more.
