OT: need bash help

Hi all,

I'm trying to write a bash script and having problems.

If I execute this:

   ps x | grep mongod | wc -l

it returns a value.

OTOH, if I execute this:

   LINES = ps x | grep mongod | wc -l

it returns "command not found".

How does one assign the output of a command to an environment variable?

TIA,
Mike Wright
