Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Performance issue in UNIX while generating .dat file from large text file Post 302309341 by KRAMA on Tuesday 21st of April 2009 04:43:30 PM
Hi John,

Please find the answers as below:

Please describe exactly what the script needs to do.
This script splits the data from Detail files (i.e which are the input files for the shell script in .txt format) . In this case the detal file located at ${m_recv_dir}/${m_glb_d92_nm}${m_glb_file_seq} . which is the starting portion of the code which i posted.

This script reads the data line by line from the text file and prepare output .DAT file.

Once the .DAT file is created it puts '*/' end of file character at the bottom of the output file generated. Once the .DAT output file is generated another shell script loads data from this .DAT files to work tables of the database using SQL Loader.

What files does it use for input? What is the format of those files?

The format of the input file is .txt

What is the format of the output?

The output format is .DAT

Please do let me know what else information you need so you can help me on this..

shcomp - compile a ksh93 shell script SYNOPSIS
shcomp [-nv] [infile [outfile]] shcomp -D [infile [outfile]] DESCRIPTION
If the -D option is not specified, shcomp takes a shell script, infile, and creates a binary format file, outfile, that ksh93 reads and executes with the same effect as the original script. Aliases are processed as the script is read. Alias definitions whose value requires variable expansion will not work correctly. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -D Generate a list of strings that need to be placed in a message catalog for internationalization. --dictionary With this option, all double quoted strings that are preceded by $ are printed, one literal per line. A literal $"foo" prints "foo" in the output. These are the messages that need to be translated to locale specific versions for internation- alization. -n Display warning messages for obsolete or non-conforming constructs. --noexec -v Display input from infile onto standard error as it reads it. --verbose OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: infile Specifies the name of the file that contains the shell script to be used as input. If infile is omitted, the shell script is read from standard input. outfile Specifies the name of the output file. If outfile is omitted, both modes write their results to standard output. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. >0 An error occurred. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWcsu | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |CSI |Enabled | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |See below. | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ The command-line interface and the system variables are Committed. The compiled shell code format is Private. The output of the -D option is Volatile. SEE ALSO
