two questions about scripts

I am running PCGrADS v1.8SL11 on a MSWindows 2000 platform with Cygwin
I am encountered two problems while writing scripts.
First, I can use the absolute value function to display data, but not on
variables in scripts. For example, the code
x = -5
y = abs(-5)
Function not found: abs
Error occurred on line 2
In file test.gs
Second, I would like to open files were the address is a variable that I
read in from a text file. The code,
name = test.ctl
works fine, but
dummy = read(‘filename.txt’)
name = sublin(result,2)
does not work (even though ‘say name’ will output the correct address).
Any help would be most appreciated.
