That's exactly what Gilles was trying to say: you _need_ the space.
Actually, IIRC, you need spaces before and after the opening and before 
the closing bracket.

Additionally, the "; fi" at the end of the if-then-else-fi is missing. 
you mentioned it where you said what the resulting shell script would 
be, but it's actually not there.
