Hello ! I'm a computer science student in France and I'm learning the shell language on ubuntu. The year is already over, but I wanted to train by making a little project : an "agenda" using a csv file.

I already wrote a few functions that work pretty well, but a single problem blocks me from advancing.

First, let me explain the organization of my csv file : each line is divided like this : title,level_of_importance(integer, lower is more important),category(integer),person,date,hour,dura tion,remark .

Example of line : Mom's birthday,1,1,Mother,30/09/2020,15:30,3h,My mother is the best !

The function that doesn't work for me is the one that prints only the events of a certain category. Here is my code (translated) :

echo "Please enter the number corresponding to your category :
0 : Various
1 : Birthday
2 : Scores
3 : Party "
read num_cat
while IFS= read -r ln 
        if [ "$3" = "$num_cat" ]
            printf '%s\n' "$ln"
