LINUX Bash Shell Script

Use and complete the template provided. The entire template must be completed. If you don't, your post may be deleted!

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data:

Write a bash shell script that presents work information of employees of a department from a company data set. The bash script file should be called "extract" and should be invocable as

$ ./extract

from the command line. The company data set layout is presented in six data files with the following field descriptions.

The script should accept a project number (1/2/3/10/20/30) and output

* the name of the project
* the name of the manager of the controlling department of the project
* the total number of employee work hours on that project
* the total number of dependents of all employees who work on that project.

Also, the script should prompt the user and repeat the task for another project number if requested.


2. Relevant commands, code, scripts, algorithms:

Here is a sample output for the script. You may need to use the following Linux commands: awk, cut, echo, for, grep, if, join, let, read, sort, tr, trap, wc, while . Make sure to sort the input files of join commands on the join fields.

bash-3.00$ ./extract
