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 ?
  File "./list_members", line 264, in main
    print >> fp, formataddr((safe(name), addr))
IOError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe


when copying and pasting the 3 lines in my SSH window they work fine .. but when running the script I get these errors!


it was working before but recently I formatted the drive and reinstalled the system: Centos5 ..


please help
