configuration for ftp script in main script

Hi,

I am new to shell scripting,and i was planning to write a script that will FTP files to destination folder.
I was planning that All configuration should be done through a properties files. and finally the output should be
Files are transferred

I have developed a properties file named ftp.properties and the content of this file are...


Code:
# these are the sample valus taken
135.23.34.212 userid password sourcefolder destfolder


135.23.34.212 is the remote ip and rest all is clear

I have also developed another main script file named ftp_script.sh which will read the properties file(ftp.properties)
contents are...

Code:
#!/bin/sh 
while read line
do
        RemoteIP=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f1`
        userid=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f2`
        passd=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f3`
        spath=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f4`
        dpath=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f5`
        ftp -vin >> ftp.log <<-!
        open $RemoteIP
        user $userid $passd
        cd $dpath
        lcd $spath
        put $file
        bye
        !
done</your/ftp/properties/filepath/ftp.properties



Now I want to change the structure of my properties file(ftp.properties) in the below format...


Code:
#############################################

#Properties file for Ftp files

#############################################


#remote ip of the machine 
RemoteIp=135.23.34.212

#This is the source directoy from where the files will be picked up
SrcFolders=/home/Administrator/files


#This directory path should end with a slash(/)
DestFolder=/home/Administrator/output/


#the pattern of the files
SourcefilePattern=*.xml


# your user id 
userid=youruserid


#your password 
password=yourpassword


Could you please guide me what should be the contents of main script file named ftp_script.sh ...as now there will be changes in
ftp_script.sh....!!

You can directly source the properties files. That is add this line at the beginning of your ftp script:

Code:
. ftp.properties

Then you can access the properties with variable like "$RemoteIp".

Hi,
so if I write the main script file which will read the properties file .. in this format itself ....

Code:
#############################################  
#Properties file for Ftp files
  #############################################  

 #remote ip of the machine
  RemoteIp=135.23.34.212  

#This is the source directoy from where the files will be picked up
 SrcFolders=/home/Administrator/files  

 #This directory path should end with a slash(/)
 DestFolder=/home/Administrator/output/   

#the pattern of the files
 SourcefilePattern=*.xml   

# your user id
  userid=youruserid 

  #your password  
password=yourpassword

followed by main script file.....
Code:
#!/bin/sh 
. ftp.properties


rip=$(sed '/^\#/d' archive.config | grep 'RemoteIp'  | tail -n 1 | cut -d "=" -f2-)
srcdir=$(sed '/^\#/d' archive.config | grep 'SrcFolders'  | tail -n 1 | cut -d "=" -f2-)
destdir=$(sed '/^\#/d' archive.config | grep 'DestFolder'  | tail -n 1 | cut -d "=" -f2-)
filepattern=$(sed '/^\#/d' archive.config | grep 'SourcefilePattern'  | tail -n 1 | cut -d "=" -f2-)
userid=$(sed '/^\#/d' archive.config | grep 'userid'  | tail -n 1 | cut -d "=" -f2-)
passd=$(sed '/^\#/d' archive.config | grep 'password'  | tail -n 1 | cut -d "=" -f2-)
ftp -vin >> ftp.log <<-!
        open rip
        user $userid $passd
        cd destdir
        cd srcdir
        put $file
        bye
        !
done

will work ...!!! please guide me on this..!!Smilie

You can directly use the variables from ftp.properties. Parsing the file is not necessary. The code will look like this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

. ftp.properties

ftp -vin >> ftp.log <<-!
        open $RemoteIp
        user $userid $password
        cd $DestFolder
        lcd $SrcFolders
        put $SourcefilePattern
        bye
        !
