Data Can't get shell parameters to pass properly to sqlplus


The issue I'm having is that my Shell won't accept SQL parameters properly......

Here's they way I'm running it....

applmgr@ga006hds [/home/users/applmgr/CW_Merge_Project]
=>  sh apps <appspwd> <SID> '01-JAN' '31-MAR'

The process just hangs not submitting the SQL job...

export USAGE="USAGE: `basename $0` -e <DBUSER> <DBPASSWD> <TNSNAME> <FROM_DATE> <TO_DATE>"
if [ $# -lt 3 ]; then
echo ${USAGE}
exit 1;
perl -e '
use POSIX qw(strftime);
@time=gmtime(time -(4*3600)); #=> GMT -4
$day = strftime("%A",0,0,0,$time[3],$time[4],$time[5],-1,-1,-1);
print "$day\n"'                                                            
echo "$(dow `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` )"
if [[ "$(dow `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` )" = "Monday" ]]; then
elif [[ "$(dow `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` )" = "Tuesday" ]]; then
elif [[ "$(dow `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` )" = "Wednesday" ]]; then
elif [[ "$(dow `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` )" = "Thursday" ]]; then
elif [[ "$(dow `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` )" = "Friday" ]]; then
elif [[ "$(dow `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` )" = "Saturday" ]]; then
sqlplus -s ${LL} @./RCV_SHIPMENT_HDR_LINE_PRE_OUTAGE.sql ${YEAR} ${PARAMS} > rcv_ship_hdr_line.log
echo ""
echo ""
echo ""
echo "Deployments Complete"

When I call the *.sql script manually, from Sql prompt from server, I get the expected results.

Input truncated to 1 characters
Enter value for year: '2005'
old   2:   l_year varchar2(4):=&YEAR;
new   2:   l_year varchar2(4):='2005';
Enter value for start_day_month: '01-APR'
old   3:   l_start_day_month varchar2(10):=&START_DAY_MONTH;
new   3:   l_start_day_month varchar2(10):='01-APR';
Enter value for end_day_month: '30-JUN'
old   4:   l_end_day_month varchar2(10):=&END_DAY_MONTH;
new   4:   l_end_day_month varchar2(10):='30-JUN';
PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Anyone have any advice on how I can get the Shell to run the *.sql properly?

One thing springs to mind. When you ran the SQL from within SQL*Plus (@RCV_SHIPMENT....), you wound up, at the end, with:


(the SQL prompt, i.e. you're still inside SQL*Plus)

Perhaps you need to add an exit; to your SQL?


$ cat

echo Hello
sqlplus -s scott/tiger @SQL.sql
echo Good bye

$ cat SQL.sql
select 1 from dual;

$ ./


("hangs" - pressing Control-D, or typing exit would "fix" this!)

$ cat SQL.sql
select 1 from dual;

$ ./


Good bye

Yes, I remember the "exit" being an issue with this once before. I'll give it a try and let you know.
