Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Split large xml into mutiple files and with header and footer in file Post 303030182 by RudiC on Thursday 7th of February 2019 03:51:30 AM
I've got some difficilties understanding what you are trying to do, so maybe just some comments:


  • If you're trying to assign two lines to a variable with
    Code:
    $x =sampletest_110.xml
    sampletest_111.xml

    , you'll have a) a syntax error, b) a logical error and (probably) c) two "command not found" errors. Remove the $sign, the space, and quote the entire string
  • Code:
    awk -f xml_String_split.awk -f xml_split.awk OUT=$x"" ROWS="500" $x $x

    is a very strange construct. If I interpret it correctly, it will run the split script eight times: twice on the first file name in $x, twice on the second, and again for the second instance of $x. Is that what you want?
  • Code:
    for f in sampletest_*; do mv "$f" "${f/sampletest_/Extrfile}.xml";

    (A done is missing here!) You replace the "sampletest" string with "Extrfile", and append ".xml". The result is exactly that. You desired target will be achieved in multiple steps, like
    Code:
    for f in sampletest_*
      do    TMP="${f/sampletest_/Extrfile}"
            echo mv "$f" "${TMP%.*}"
      done
