Fix: Script: Value Too Great For Base

./ line 101: [[: 09: value too great for base (error token is "09")

The error occurs when you have a integer value that start with a “0” (zero). Bash will interpret that as an octal, which means 08 and 09 are invalid. I got the error by setting the hour in an variable and making an comparison on it:

hour=`date +%H`

You can force bash to read the number as a decimal by putting “10#” in front of it:

hour="10#`date +%H`"

That fixed it.
