 do while loops ?

I have a small script that works but is not very tidy

echo "date now is" > SIZE
date >> SIZE
ls -lrt /scratch/x* >> SIZE
ls -lrt /scratch/d* >> SIZE
echo "" >> SIZE
ls -lrt /scratch31/x* >> SIZE
echo "" >> SIZE
ls -lrt /userscfd/x* >> SIZE
echo "" >> SIZE
ls -lrt /userscfd2/x* >> SIZE
echo "" >> SIZE
sleep 900

I cut & paste this several 100 times and submit it
Its write out the size of several files while an analysis is running, I
ususally kill it once the analysis has finished.

How could I make use of do while loops to just specify a length of time
over which the script should run?

Many thanks

 do while loops ?
Awk problem??
I wouldn't use the csh just cos i don't know it but with ksh do
something like


# Parameter is total time in seconds

# Initialize SIZE file


while [ $CurrentTime -lt $TotalTime ]
    echo "date now is"
    ls -lrt /scratch/x*
    ls -lrt /scratch/d*
    ls -lrt /scratch31/x*
    ls -lrt /userscfd/x*
    ls -lrt /userscfd2/x*
    ) >> SIZE
    sleep 900
    let "CurrentTime=CurrentTime + 900"
exit 0

Be aware that I have not tested this code!!
