Sorting out unique values from output of for loop.

Hi ,

i have a belwo script which is used to get sectors per track value extarcted from Solaris machine:
 for DISK in /dev/dsk/c*t*d*s*; do value=`prtvtoc "$DISK" | sed -n -e '/Dimensions/,/Flags/{/Dimensions/d; /Flags/d; p; }' | sed -n -e '/sectors\/track/p'`; if [ -n "$value" ]; then echo "SectorsPerTrack=$DISK:$value"; else  echo "$value" >/dev/null; fi; done 2>/dev/null

the output is as below :
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s1:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s10:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s11:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s12:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s13:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s14:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s15:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s2:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s3:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s4:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s5:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s6:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s7:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s8:*      63 sectors/track
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s9:*      63 sectors/track

Can someone help me to tune this script to give me only the unique value of sectors/track value out of the for loop :
output in the below fashion(only the unique values and * removed from the output):
SectorsPerTrack=/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0:63 sectors/track

thanks in advance Smilie

redirect "Your command output to a sed and do replace '*' with space and then do a sort -u on it"

Does the below helps?

for DISK in /dev/dsk/c*t*d*s*; 
value=`prtvtoc "$DISK" | sed -n -e '/Dimensions/,/Flags/{/Dimensions/d; /Flags/d; p; }' | sed -n -e '/sectors\/track/p'`; 
if [ -n "$value" ]; 
echo "SectorsPerTrack=$DISK:$value"; 
echo "$value" >/dev/null; 
done | sed 's/*//g' | sort -u
