	i've got a similar loop (just converted to this new for format, which 
i'm trying to get used to using), to set the values in an array:

while read line ; do	
   for ((i=1;i<=11;i++)) ; do 
      field[$i]=`echo $line | cut -d';' -f$i | tr -d '"'`
done < in.file

	this should take a line of the format 

"foo1";"foo2";"foo3"; [...] ;"foo11"

	and stuff each foo# into the appropriate spot in the array named field.  
my question is, how do i then concatenate all of these values back into one 
line?  what i'm currently doing, since the max value for i is so small, is just 

pretty soon, however, i'm going to have to use this script on a larger set of 
data, with a lot more fields per line; i don't want to have to type out each 
item of the array individually.  i know there's an easier way to do it, but it's 
late, and my brain isn't working very well.

	any suggestions (other than using perl, which is what all of my 
coworkers say to do)?
