Does execline natively do arithmetic and branching

Hi all,

I'm messing around with execline, in the hopes that in long tight loops
it can be faster than /bin/sh. Now I want to do incrementing and other
add/subtract. Is there any kind of native way, or do I need to backtick

Second question: Is there a way to find out whether a variable is ten
or above without using execline's ifthenelse to query the test
