    The While, Do... Done!


    x=1
    while [ x -le 10 ] <-- Make sure there is a space between the brackets and anything else
    do
       # some processing
    done

    The while do done is another one of the useful loop constructs in bash. When the loop is bases on a condition or breaking out will be determined during the loop, the while, do done is your construct.
