Converting an Apple script to a shell script ...

Hi Dave,

I have a regular Apple script that I would like to execute before actually beginning the backup. This is the script:

property imagesPathList : {"/Sauvegardes/SuperDuper/Duplication - iMacG5.sparseimage"}

tell application "Caffeine"
	turn on
end tell

repeat with i in imagesPathList
	set filePath to i
		do shell script "hdiutil compact " & quoted form of filePath
	end try
end repeat

tell application "Caffeine"
	turn off
end tell

Can you help me translate this to a shell script ?
