Log file

Hi All,

I am new to Linux OS. I am trying to run a batch programs, so i using Shell script to run the batch files. And the binaries which i am running dumps log data to command prompt.I am trying to store this in log file ">log.txt". I have posted below my shell script code

************************************************** ********
#!/bin/sh

PATH=/bin:/prj/bin
/prj/bin/RunLibTestStatic -pf tiff.cfg -lqp 0 30 -lqp 1 32 >> out_qp30.txt
echo "Done."
************************************************** ********

This will create a file " OUT_QP~1.txt " instead of "out_qp30.txt"

please let me know how to correct this problem.

Thanks
fido

How are you looking at the file with the unix ls command or with dir in DOS? That is a DOS filename display, not UNIX or Linux.

You are correct. I was looking from windows so it was showing me "OUT_QP~1.txt" but when i did "ls" it is showing me "outqp2.txt?" is there any way that i can get it has "outqp2.txt" when i am looking from windows.

Thanks

No. Windows is windows. Are you running cygwin? Is that why you are looking at files thru Windows?

Cygwin has a windows-like screen you can use - it is called xwindows, on linux it could be called gnome, for example.

I am using SecureCRT which is similar to Cygwin. I am running some script in unix and processing these log in windows but i see the file names are junk to use them. Please can you tell me any way to change these file name to actual names in unix or windows.

I have one more question. Even in unix when i do "ls" the log file name ends with "?" something like this "out_qp30.txt? " should i include something in the shell to remove this "?"


thanks

I get the impression that your disc partition is formatted FAT32 not NTFS (hence the MDSOS style filenames). No comment on how to fix it because there are too many unknowns.
