I've written one shell script which will accept two numbers from user and compares them and display message according to the comparison.

echo "Opening the shell script1 file.."
echo "Enter the first number"
read a
echo "Enter the second number"
read b
if $a -gt $b;
then echo "First number is greater"
else
echo "The second number is greater"
fi

When running the script it is showing error as:

script2.ksh[6]: 34: not found
The second number is greater

Could you please help me regarding this?

Note that you are at Oracle FAQ forum, not UNIX shell scripting one. Please, keep discussion Oracle-related. For other problems, visit appropriate forums.

Try this

echo "Opening the shell script1 file.."
echo "Enter the first number"
read a
echo "Enter the second number"
read b
if [ "$a" -gt "$b" ];
then echo "First number is greater"
else
echo "The second number is greater"
fi
