Lightbulb Lottery number checker

hi ,

Let me put it in a different way with words.
  1. Assume the lottery have numbers from 1-50.
  2. Out of this 50 numbers, I am going to pick up only 35 numbers randomly.
  3. so, my total numbers would be 35 numbers shuffled from [1-50] nos.
    [eg: 1,4,6,7,11,30,32,40,46,49]
  4. I have list of winning numbers in [my_number.txt] file.
  5. Now, the script should check within my 35 numbers comparing the file [my_number.txt] and should give the results .. The result number should be 6 nos.
    [eg: 1 6 30 32 46 49 ]

Thanks in Advance.

lottery_numbers=$(seq 1 50 | shuf -n 35 | sort -n | tr '\n' ' ' ; echo ;)

for i in `seq 10`; do seq 1 50 | shuf -n 6 | sort -g | tr '\n' ' ' ;echo; done > my_numbers
# or use input file

awk '
   NR==1 {
      print "";
      print "Lottery Numbers: " lottery_numbers;
      print "";
      printf("%-25s\t%-10s\t%-10s\n", "My Numbers", "#s Matched", "Result")
      n=split(lottery_numbers, ln);
      for (i=1; i<=NF; i++) for (j=1; j<=n ; j++) if ($i==ln[j]) c++;
      printf("%-25s\t%-10d\t%-10s\n", $0, c, ((c < 6) ? "lose" : "win"));
' lottery_numbers="$lottery_numbers" my_numbers

Is this not the same as Lottery result checker ?

Are you actually the same person and the login names have become muddled?

Hi rdrtx1,

Thanks for your input..

Between, is there any way that I can manually input the 35 numbers rather than auto shuffle from 1-50 number to pick up only 35 nos..

c=$(echo "$arr" | wc -w)
while [ $c -lt $mn ]
   (( t = mn - c ))
   echo "Enter numbers from 1 to 50 ($t to go):"
   read numbers
   numbers=$(echo "$numbers" | sed 's/[;,:\//]/ /g;' | awk '
         c=split(arr, a);
         for (i=1; i<=c; i++) b[a[i]]=i;
         for (i=1; i<=NF; i++) {
            if (n > 0 && n<=mx && ! b[n] && split(arr, _) < mn) {arr=arr " " n; b[n]=n;}
         if (arr) print arr;
      } ' mn=$mn mx=$mx arr="$arr";
   arr=$(echo "$numbers" | sed 's/^ *//; s/ *$//; s/  */ /g;')
   c=$(echo "$arr" | wc -w)
   echo ""
   echo "Numbers entered: $arr"
   echo ""

Hi rdrtx,

I am lost here.. Do I need to use only the second script or I need to merge the first and second script together ?

Hi ,

The second scripts only ask for the 35 numbers, so once i enter the 35 nos, its not getting me any output...
