Linux Create Multiple UNIX Files for Multiple SQL Rows output

Dear All,

I am trying to write a Unix Script which fires a sql query. The output of the sql query gives multiple rows. Each row should be saved in a separate Unix File.
The number of rows of sql output can be variable. I am able save all the rows in one file but in separate files.

Any pointers will be sincerely appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,

Take your single output file and parse it line by line into separate files with awk or stream your output into a "while read"

Each row can be considered as a book page having multiple lines including new line character. Is there a possible way by using number of output rows as a unix script variable and then save them in separate files ?

The output file is filled with only the first line of each row. Remaining lines are not filled in the file.

Hope this will help.


if [ -f temp.dat ]
rm -f temp.dat

#Writes the data to a file (temp.dat)
sqlplus scott/tiger@database<<EOF
set feedback off;
set heading off;
spool temp.dat;
select * from table_name;

#splits the file to no of rows  as defined in variable (no_of_rows)
split $no_of_rows temp.dat $file_nm

I tried using the above script with no_of_rows = 4 for 4 output rows of sql. But it is still printing the first line of each row.

Also, in the sql file I'm using the below SET cmds, not sure what they do:-
set feedback off
set linesize 5000000
set pagesize 1000000
set trimspool on
