not too sure about ash but you get less chars with:

 print "${new% }"

another way showing off some aspects of modern shells but still a bit longish...

% stephan@labaule (/home/stephan) % % cat #!/bin/ksh93 function rev { nameref s=$1; typeset a=( $s ); integer n=${#a[*]} i; s=; n=n-1 for i in {$n..0}; do s+="${a[i]} "; done; s=${s%?} } s=" one two three four " rev s print "[$s]" % stephan@labaule (/home/stephan) % % ksh93 [four three two one]
enjoy ;) --steph
