Test this under sh and ksh and compare the output. Lower-case it for consistency There is no return from an exec. For the purposes of display, parts of the script have 3: Similar functionality can be achived with sed.

It is impossible due to inherent race conditions to ensure that a set-uid script cannot be compromised.

Find an entry in the password file 3: Timestamps in the raw files are NOT designed for easy sorting. The name comes from “Global Regular Expression qnd Print” — a function from the Unix editors which was used frequently enough to warrant getting its own program.

The until form just negates the test. This requires that wildcard patterns be expanded to matching filenames.

Since scripts are xnd used to automate long-running background jobs, sending notification of completion by mail is a common trick. Because of this, the script must be readable as well as executable.


Arrays must be declared before use, e,g. It is mostly used for global search and replace operations.

Also test variable setting inside an implicit subshell. It can be used for prototyping GUI applications.

Start the dndlookup program as a coprocess 5: Run a subshell, with 4 copied to 1 so we get it in stdout. It also demonstrates use of getopt for options processing Example: A function may read or modify any shell variable that exists in the calling script.

Standard output from the first command inner subshell is passed into the pipeline as normal, but the final output of the pipeline is redirected to 3 so that it appears on the original stdout and is not captured by the backtics.

Since “find” may result in a very large list of pathnames, using the results directly may overflow command line buffers. The exit status of a shell script can be explicitly set using programjing Nor it defaults oof the value of the last command run.

Useful for conditional execution based on time, and for timestamping output. All file descriptors are closed when a script exits.

Select a random image from the background logo collection 4: Check exit status of everything you do. Typically they would be placed in a separate file and probramming with the “. Add in the magic postscript preface to perform 3: Some of the options are: These notes are updated from time to time.

This is used for diagnostics when a variable should have been set and there is no sensible default value to use. Fails on old Bourne shells. This could be used to configure a screen saver, for example. Some of the examples are taken from texts or online resources which have granted permission to redistribute.


If any of the commands really care about inheriting open file descriptors that they don’t need then a more correct command line closes the descriptors before running the commands. The terminating string must be at the start of a line.

This short test script can be used to generate suitable output. We want the isre output of the “tee” process This is an easy way to allow for optional variables, and have sensible defaults if programmung haven’t been set. Pattern operators can be combined Example: Remove the named variables. Safe scratch files can be made by creating a new directory, owned and writeable only by you, then creating files in there.

This can be useful if the script has multiple possible exit points. We use it as the default interactive shell for new accounts on all of our public systems. Such variables are global.

Functions are called like any other command. Many things in common with the Bourne shell, but many enhancements to improve interactive use. Shell option flags like -x are unset in a function – you must explicitly set them in each function to trace the execution.
