Re: help with the script.

First, read this to understand why you're have difficulty with angle brackets. And a hint to everyone, I clicked on "quote" for his original post to see his original input. That way I could that his here-document was correct.

rooh, I would have sworn that I knew everything about ksh. But I have never seen your "for" statement syntax before. I tested it and it works. I looked in The New Kornshell Command and Programming Language by Morris Bolsky and David Korn. It's not there. They only show
for i in $list
do
done
and they never mention
for i in $list
{
}
Where did you get this syntax??

You really posted a fragment of a script so it's hard to do anything but visually inspect. But here is something that looks like a double loop waiting to happen:

for record in `cat $bpfile`

acode1=`awk '{print $2 }' $bpfile`
ename=`awk ' {print $1 }' $bpfile`
dept1=`awk '{ print $6 }' $bpfile|cut -c 1 `
I think that you either want to lose that "for" loop or crack "record" up into acode1, ename, and dept1.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

NAME
Tcl_AllowExceptions - allow all exceptions in next script evaluation SYNOPSIS
#include <tcl.h> Tcl_AllowExceptions(interp) ARGUMENTS
Tcl_Interp *interp (in) Interpreter in which script will be evaluated. _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
If a script is evaluated at top-level (i.e. no other scripts are pending evaluation when the script is invoked), and if the script termi- nates with a completion code other than TCL_OK, TCL_ERROR or TCL_RETURN, then Tcl normally converts this into a TCL_ERROR return with an appropriate message. The particular script evaluation procedures of Tcl that act in the manner are Tcl_EvalObjEx, Tcl_EvalObjv, Tcl_Eval, Tcl_EvalEx, Tcl_GlobalEval, Tcl_GlobalEvalObj, Tcl_VarEval and Tcl_VarEvalVA. However, if Tcl_AllowExceptions is invoked immediately before calling one of those a procedures, then arbitrary completion codes are per- mitted from the script, and they are returned without modification. This is useful in cases where the caller can deal with exceptions such as TCL_BREAK or TCL_CONTINUE in a meaningful way. KEYWORDS
continue, break, exception, interpreter Tcl 7.4 Tcl_AllowExceptions(3)
