Problem with multiple mail attachments

Hi everyone...

I am facing problem with the multiple mail attachments.

Code:
cd /work/mohan/pi_log/
mail_file='uuencode ahmedabad.csv ahmedabad.csv ; uuencode ahmedabad_devrpt_20110530.csv ahmedabad_devrpt_20110530.csv'
( $mail_file ) | mailx -m -s"test"  domain@website.com

its giving me error like
Quote:
Usage: uuencode [ -m ] [ source ] remotedest
but same code work well for sending single file as attachment.

Where i am going wrong???

because of your command is like working after shell's comma interpretation as like this..
Code:
uuencode ahmedabad.csv ahmedabad.csv ';' uuencode ahmedabad_devrpt_20110530.csv ahmedabad_devrpt_20110530.csv

so you must use `eval` [from eval man pages .. concatenated together into a single command] for correct interpret
Code:
mail_file='uuencode ahmedabad.csv ahmedabad.csv ; uuencode ahmedabad_devrpt_20110530.csv ahmedabad_devrpt_20110530.csv'
( eval $mail_file ) | mailx -s"test"  domain@website.com

equals to (no error)
Code:
uuencode ahmedabad.csv ahmedabad.csv
uuencode fopen-ing ahmedabad_devrpt_20110530.csv
