Some Junk contents.

Hai Masters,

When i m trying to do comparing some 600 files of filename and size from server 1 with same from server 2.

You when i m trying to do the following cmd.
ls -lrt | awk '{ print $5,$9}' >arr.sql.
This will print the filename & size of all the files in to file named "arr.sql"

What the problem is..

When i am trying to view the arr.sql, it seems like
3047 ^[[00mupgrade_9_1_0_to_9_2_0_ccex.sql^[[00m
12288 ^[[01;34mprocesses^[[00m
12288 ^[[01;34munix920b01^[[00m
4096 ^[[01;34mCVS^[[00m
108 0 ^[[00marr.sql^[[00m

But at the same time, the o/p of following cmd seems like
cat arr.sql
3047 upgrade_9_1_0_to_9_2_0_ccex.sql
12288 processes
12288 unix920b01
4096 CVS
108 arr.sql

If you are viewing the file in vi, ^[ is a representation of the character escape (ESC, 0x1b) and ESC[01;34 is a terminal command to change the color.

You have an ls command that is doing colored output.
When ls is piped like ls -lrt | awk it should not use colors.
