Hi,
I have two files, file 1 and file 2. I want to use each var (one by
one) from file 1 to run a loop in file 2.
Eg:

File one:
var1  var2....varn
101    99       .
76     104     .
89     107     .

I want to run a loop in file two that takes each value for vars1-varn
in file 1 and loops over it: So for var1 of file1, I want to run the
following loop in file2:
foreach i in `i' 101 76 89 {
......
}

and so on for each var of file 1.
Is there a way to do that?
