Hi.

What DukeNuke was trying to tell is to use code tags...

You need to execute the echo statements to get the values you want:

Code:
s=$(echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f1)
p=$(echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f2)

Hello Scottn

Still i am in confusion functionality is like while statement should keep on running till the end of last line of my input file and cut should cut some specific data from each line of input file and it must and than than i want to passs value of s and p to command
$UXEXE/uxext tsk ses=$s vses=* upr=* model mu=$p `output=$p_$s.pnf` APP

i mean it should not end till i reach the last line of the input line and cut should cut each line one by one

s = echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f1
p = echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f2

it should be
s=`echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f1`
p=`echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f2`

note: no spaces around '=' and use of backticks

Not sure I follow you. Do you want to run this for each line in your input file?:

Code:
$UXEXE/uxext tsk ses=$s vses=* upr=* model mu=$p `output=$p_$s.pnf` APP

If so, then it's in the right place.

There is one tiny thing wrong:
Code:
$UXEXE/uxext tsk ses=$s vses=* upr=* model mu=$p `output=${p}_$s.pnf` APP

Code:
while read EachRecord
do
echo "EachRecord = "$EachRecord
s=`echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f1`
p=`echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f2`
echo $s
echo $p
$UXEXE/uxext tsk ses=$s vses=* upr=* model mu=$p `output=$p_$s.pnf` APP
done < input.txt


Hope this will help..

Hello
sorry was sick for the last weak
I have made changes in my code as below

while read EachRecord
do
echo "EachRecord = "$EachRecord
s=`echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f1`
p=`echo $EachRecord | cut -d " " -f2`
echo $s
echo $p
$UXEXE/uxext tsk ses=$s vses=* upr=* model mu=$p `output=$p_$s.pnf` APP
done < input.txtu_fdge50.001

*********
but when i am executing the script it is creating a file name u_fdge50.001 and in this some data related to my first inut is there.
It should not be like this
i must have output on console for each input like below:
G_BDRPARIS_BDRJX331.pnf
G_BDRPARIS_BDRJX501.pnf

and it seems it is not reading the 2 line of input file,it is again and again reading 1st line of input line

You forgot the code tags again ;-)

Change this line:

Code:
$UXEXE/uxext tsk ses=$s vses=* upr=* model mu=$p `output=$p_$s.pnf` APP

To

Code:
$UXEXE/uxext tsk ses=$s vses=* upr=* model mu=$p output=${p}_$s.pnf APP

You have to separate the two variables p and s otherwise all you'll get is the value of s.

And I removed the ` backticks around output=

What were they for?
