expr is the standard way to evaluate arithmetic expressions.
expr can recognize the 4 main operators (+, , *, /) and % (the mod operator that return the reminder of the division of two integer), and power operator . As it is in KSH the syntax is very strict. first, if you only need to print the result of an operation just write it like that:
