I have been searching for the proper Syntax to a switch statement for Unix SunOS. It seems I'm out of luck, perchance anyone can post an example?

The switch statement in bash is called case. See help case for details.

case "$1" in
  -p) echo 'Hello, world!' ; exit 0 ;;
  -h|*) usage ; exit 1 ;;
esace
