Hi,
I have one shell script ...in which i have written the following.

file_name1=source
file_name2=cpsource
count1=echo `cat ${file_name1} | wc -l`
count2=1
#if [[ `echo cat ${file_name1} | wc -l` -gt 1 ]]
if [[ $count1 -gt $count2 ]]
then
my statements
else
fi

Here i have 3 lines in the source file.I need to execute the staements which are inside the if statements...if the number of lines in the source file exceeds 1.
So i used the above if statement.But am getting the following error.pls help me...
