Assigning a Value to Null Variables (sh)

Is it more efficient to assign a value to a variable without a value
like this:


        -or this -


Or is it simply a matter of coding style?

1. assign a value in a variable in sh

Hello all,

I have a simple problem,

In an sh script i have to get  values (string and int) to put in  two

These values can be in two files with only this string or value in it

Or i can get it with a perl script that make a "print $variable;"

Can you help me ?

Thank's a lot,     :-)

Best regards from France,
