Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

Folder contents getting appended as strings while redirecting file contents to a variable

Hi one of the output of the command is as below


Code:
# sed -n "/CCM-ResourceHealthCheck:/,/---------/{/CCM-ResourceHealthCheck:/d;/---------/d;p;}" Automation.OutputZ$zoneCounter | sed 's/$/<br>/'

Resource List : <br>
*************************** 1. row ***************************<br>
          ID: 11337<br>
AVAILABILITY: RED<br>
    PLATFORM: qe-z1-mm CCM-Hardware<br>
   SORT_NAME: HARDWARE<br>
 DESCRIPTION: <br>
*************************** 1. row ***************************<br>
          ID: 15761<br>
AVAILABILITY: N/A<br>
    PLATFORM: 216<br>
   SORT_NAME: BG<br>
 DESCRIPTION: <br>
*************************** 1. row ***************************<br>

now if i try to store this into a variable something like this happens

Code:
vk=$( sed -n "/CCM-HQE-ResourceHealthCheck:/,/---------/{/CCM-HQE-ResourceHealthCheck:/d;/---------/d;p;}" TACHCAutomation.OutputZ$zoneCounter | sed 's/$/<br>/'  )


echo $vk

Resource List : <br> @ htmlGEN.sh myOutput.html myScript.sh sample.sh some.html TACHCAutomation.OutputZ1 TACHCAutomation.OutputZ2 TACHCAutomation.OutputZ3 TACHCAutomation.OutputZ4 TACHCAutomationOutput.html TACHCAutomationtemp1.txt TACHCAutomationtemp2.txt test.output test.output.html test.output_orig threshold.conf txt2HTML.sh txt2HTML.sh_backup_mar28 txt2HTML.sh_backup2 txt2HTML.sh_backup3 txt2HTML.sh_backup4 txt2HTML.sh_orig vk 1. row ***************************<br>

.ect ect

thse are nothing but folder contents where these files are... any workaround available for this.. i need to store the output in variable itself and not file...

It is stored right, but when you echo an unquoted string, substitution happens.

It takes the *'s to mean 'expand filenames' and flattens all white space when you echo an unquoted string. Try this:

Code:
echo "$vk"
