You have access to the error3 script in your shell account.


Log in to your shell account and run the error3 script with the following options: 1. Run error3 with the –v option to see the lines before they are run.
2. Run error3 with the –x option to see the lines with their variables translated.
3. Run error3 with the –xv options together.
4. Correct the error, by changing the sort command variable to column instead of col. Run the error3 script again to verify that it works correctly.
