Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Help with grep inside an if loop Post 302512557 by Chubler_XL on Sunday 10th of April 2011 11:25:19 PM
Put quotes around fixed strings you are testing for:

Code:
if [ "#" = "$word" ] || [ "Number" = "$word" ] || [ "CHI" = "$word" ]; then[
...
if [ "$var" = "$word" ] && [ "VVN" = "$pos" ]; then

Sed needs 1 argument for sed string and env vars must be in double quotes to be expanded, see use of ${var} when followed by alphanum:

Code:
sed -i "${NUMLINE}d" Brown_Adam_CIVForms.txt

NAME
zgrep - search possibly compressed files for a regular expression SYNOPSIS
zgrep [ grep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename... DESCRIPTION
Zgrep invokes grep on compressed or gzipped files. These grep options will cause zgrep to terminate with an error code: (-[drRzZ]|--di*|--exc*|--inc*|--rec*|--nu*). All other options specified are passed directly to grep. If no file is specified, then the standard input is decompressed if necessary and fed to grep. Otherwise the given files are uncompressed if necessary and fed to grep. If the GREP environment variable is set, zgrep uses it as the grep program to be invoked. EXIT CODE
2 - An option that is not supported was specified. AUTHOR
