Solution

# Change directory
cd $SWDIR/util

# Set the variable n, which should store the number of iterations,
# either to 4 when condition "bla_bla" or else to 20
if bla_bla then
n=4
else
n=20
fi

# loop n times and do something in that loop
# (initialize the variable i with 1, then loop as long as i is
# smaller than or equal the variable n. increase i by 1 on
# every looping)
for (( i=1; i<=$n; i++ )) do ./swadm add_process 1 BG Y done
