Just on a side-note (not saying it's how you want to do this one), this is something that BASH arrays are nice for (saving another loop): $ foo=(bar baz quux) $ echo "prefixed: '${foo[*]/#/pfx_}'" prefixed: 'pfx_bar pfx_baz pfx_quux' Parameter Expansion (incl on arrays) is discussed more at:

Well yeah it's not the right way to set USE_EXPAND vars; LINGUAS is, and will be handled specially since it's one of that set. -- #friendly-coders -- We're friendly but we're not /that/ friendly ;-)
