I have a small problem, Instead of text file, I have the text coming as an o/p of an other script i.e something similar to
Code:
for ENTRY in `/workspace/script3.sh "$arg1" |grep -i  group |
 cut -f2 -d: | tr ',' '\012'`;

but I don't see the same result as the original code. Please can you correct me?
