I've created a simple shell script to count members in my 3 lists :



******

./list_members list1 | wc -l
./list_members list2 | wc -l
./list_members list3 | wc -l

and I keep getting this error:



*****

wc: invalid option --
Try `wc --help' for more information.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./list_members", line 286, in ?

This is a Unix question, not a Mailman question, but the answer is
remove the trailing <CR>s from the lines of your script. They are
confusing the shell into thinking there is another, empty argument at
the end of the line. I.e.

ex /path/to/script
set ff=unix
w
q
