String manipulation

Hello

Could you help with small script:
How to split string X1 into 3 string
String X1 can have 1 or many strings

Code:
X1='A1:B1:C1:D1:A2:B2:C2:D2:A3:B3:C3:D3'

This is output which I want to have:
Code:
Z1='A1:B1:C1:D1'
Z2='A2:B2:C2:D2'
Z3='A3:B3:C3:D3'

<snip...>
can you tell more about the string and what to do?
split after every hex value above D1?
split after every table location pointing to 4th column?

One way would be..
Code:
[mkt@ michael]$ X1='A1:B1:C1:D1:A2:B2:C2:D2:A3:B3:C3:D3'
[mkt@ michael]$ Z1=$(echo $X1 | cut -d: -f1-4)
[mkt@ michael]$ Z2=$(echo $X1 | cut -d: -f5-8)
[mkt@ michael]$ Z3=$(echo $X1 | cut -d: -f8-)

BASH

Hi,

I think the below script may full fill your requirement.

Code:
#! /bin/bash
c=1
info="A1:B1:C1:D1:A2:B2:C2:D2:A3:B3:C3:D3:A4:B4:C4:D4:A5:B5:C5:D5"
for i in `echo $info | sed 's/\([A-Z0-9]*\):\([A-Z0-9]*\):\([A-Z0-9]*\):\([A-Z0-9]*\):/\1:\2:\3:\4\n/g'`
do
   eval X$c="$i"
   let c=$c+1
done
let c=$c-1
for j in `seq 1 $c`;
do
   eval echo \$X$j;
done

Cheers,
RangaSmilie
