I simply standardise on sh in my scripts for portability among a wide range of operating systems. There was a long period when ksh was not part of the standard install on Linux.

Ok, i have to admit: my initial reaction was peppered with some sarcasm.

(@porter: I do hope you were not offended and took it in the humurous mood it was offered. If not: I'm sorry.)

I think this is raising an interesting question deserving a deeper discussion, so if anyone is interested I'd like to suggest a discussion about (working title):

"How to achieve a maximum of standardization while at the same time recognizing newer developments in the Unix systems programming area?"

As it is i think this is way off-topic in this thread and I'd like to start it somewhere else. Any takers?

Hi Bakunin,

I have used sprintf() as told by you, but i'm unable to achieve the intended. If you have any code snippet, can u please share it.
One more query, to write contents into a file line by line is it correct to open the file with mode "a+b" i.e . filepointer = fopen(filename,"a+b");

Please help me out.

Thanks & Regards
