Hi,
I am new to shell scripting.Please help me on this.I am using solaris 10 OS and shell i am using is
Code:
# echo $0
-sh

My requirement is i have source file say makefile.I need to extract files with extensions (.c |.cxx |.h |.hxx |.sc) from the makefile.after doing so i need to check whether those files exist on the solaris server and if so what is the location they are present.could somebody help on this?

---------- Post updated at 07:43 AM ---------- Previous update was at 06:53 AM ----------

Code:
for f in `grep -v '^#' Makefile | grep -Eo '[^[:space:]]*\.(c|cxx|h|hxx|sc)([[:space:]]|$)' | sort -u`; do find . -name "$f"; done

Grep uses regular expressions and . has a special meaning, it means any character. To look for a . you need to escape it : \.

hi,
Thanks for u r reply.It's giving trouble with grep -E option.
output of the command:
Code:
do find . -name "$f";
done> >
grep: illegal option -- E
grep: illegal option -- o
Usage: grep -hblcnsviw pattern file . .

I have removed -E and ran the script with grep -li.not sure what is the impact of chnanging it.
i will explain the requirement in a very clear manner.
1)I have source file named makefile.i am grepping some extention files like .c,.cxx etc from it and moving the output to a filename srctxt.
2)then i need to check whatever files present in srctxt are present in server.say if i have file.c in srctxt file i need to check the file exist on server
find / - name file.c -print.
3)ultimate goal is if i whatever file present in srctxt file say file.c if not present in solaris serve i need to findout that files and need to get that from external vendor.so need to run a loop for finding the file and if i didnot find the file then need send a error like file doesnot exist.

once again thanks verymuch for u r reply.

On Solaris use /usr/xpg4/bin/grep instead of grep.

thanks for the reply.i have modified the grep to /usr/xpg4/bin/grep and option E is working with it.But after running it scritpt not coming out.
output after running script:
Code:
# for f in `grep -v '^#' makefile | /usr/xpg4/bin/grep -E '[^[:space:]]*\.(c|cxx|h|hxx|sc)([[:space:]]|$)' | sort -u`;
>  do find . -name "$f";
> done

what can be done now?

find

Hi,

can you post sample input of makefile( contains file name) ?
it contains only file name or information along with file name.

Code:
egrep -e '\.(c|cxx|h|hxx|sc)$' makefile

Here i am assuming that make file contains only file name.

Cheers,
