Hi , i've been programming in bash for a week or so and have this assignment to do but i get this error message when i execute my program:
line 6: syntax error near unexpected token `do
And here's my code:
while [ -n $1 ]
list= `ls $1`
for i in $list
cat $i >> basename $i
I know it's a stupid mistake but i can't figure it out.

i would add some echo statements to verify that the argument you are passing is as expected and that the list variable for example contains what you expected.
