Your script failed because it could not allocate more than 1GB of memory for your query.

What DB are you using?

Please show the select statement from your script as well.

There are ways to fetch rows one at a time from a resultset. If we can see what is going on and can know the DB.

The below is the script I am trying to run. The DB is SybaseIQ

HTML Code:

> data_output.csv
output=`dbisql -c "UID=username;PWD=password" -host localhost -port 2640 -nogui<<!

SELECT A||CHAR(44)||B||CHAR(44)||C||CHAR(44)||D as MYDATA from E



echo "${output}" | while read line; do
echo "${line}" >> data_output.csv
