Optimize multiple awk variable assignment

how can i optimize the following:


        TOTAL1=$(echo "${TOTALRESULT}" | egrep "total1=" | awk -F"=" '{print $NF}')
        TOTAL2=$(echo "${TOTALRESULT}" | egrep "total2=" | awk -F"=" '{print $NF}')
        TOTAL3=$(echo "${TOTALRESULT}" | egrep "total3=" | awk -F"=" '{print $NF}')
        TMEMORY=$(echo "${TOTALRESULT}" | egrep "tmemory=" | awk -F"=" '{print $NF}')

i would like to, if possible, avoid the multiple egrep and multiple awk.

typeset -u TOTALRESULT

Note that typeset -u (values are uppercase) is ksh.
eval can be evil. A bit more careful is
eval $(
echo "$TOTALRESULT" | awk '/^[[:alnum:]_]+=[[:print:]]*$/'

You could also consider:

trap 'rm -f "$TmpFile"' EXIT


awk '
BEGIN {	FS = OFS = "="
{	$1 = toupper($1)
}1' <<EOF > "$TmpFile"

. "$TmpFile"

printf '%s is set to %s\n' \

which produces the output:
TOTAL1 is set to 4
TOTAL2 is set to 9
TOTAL3 is set to 89
TMEMORY is set to 1999
STRING is set to abc=def

Although written and tested using a 1993+ version of the Korn shell, this script should work with any POSIX-conforming shell.

In my bash 4, this seems to work:
. <(echo "${TOTALRESULT^^}")
4, 1999
