FOR loop problem: Kindly Help

Hello Friends,

I have file called reference.txt which looks like below,

Quote:
wahabeua |3.1 |wahabeua-1.1.11 |Not available |Code Coverage
ferrari12 |4.0 |ferrari12-1.1.21|Not applicable |Code Coverage
masterpiece |4.1 |masterpiece-2.2.33 |File Changes |Code Coverage
columns are been formed by delimiter "|" as shown. I am required to scan whole file line by line & compare 1st 2 columns with new name (ex. ferrari) & new version (2.1).

CODE PURPOSE: whnever new project formed compare if it already exists & compare if version updated.

My Code
Quote:
for file in $(cat reference.txt);do
if [[ `echo $file | cut -d ',' -f1` == $PROJECT ]];then
echo "Project Matched"
if [[ `echo $file | cut -d ',' -f2` == $VERSION ]];then
echo "Project & Version Matched"
else
echo "Project Matched but Version Revised"
fi
else
echo "Complete New Project"
fi
echo "$n"
let "n += 1"
done
By executing my code i am finding,
1. its looping for 19 times instead of looping for only 3 times. & providing 3 output for 3 rows.

Kindly help. Thanks a lot.

Perhaps try something like this....
Code:
oldIFS="$IFS"
IFS='|'
while read f1 f2 etc
do
   echo do something with $f1 and $f2
done < reference.txt
IFS="$oldIFS"

Continuation Problem

Once i find PROJECT matched & project VERSION matched. I am supposed to update $f3 & $f4 (3rd & 4th field) of same file.

Example:
reference.txt
Quote:
wahabeua |3.1 |wahabeua-1.1.11 |Not available |Code Coverage
ferrari12 |4.0 |ferrari12-1.1.21|Not applicable |Code Coverage
masterpiece |4.1 |masterpiece-2.2.33 |File Changes |Code Coverage
New Project with following variables (I have)
Quote:
PROJECT=ferrari12
VERSION=4.0
LABLE=ferrari12-1.1.25
Reference.txt should look like follwing.

Quote:
wahabeua |3.1 |wahabeua-1.1.11 |Not available |Code Coverage
ferrari12 |4.0 |ferrari12-1.1.25|Not applicable |Code Coverage
masterpiece |4.1 |masterpiece-2.2.33 |File Changes |Code Coverage
Code:
Quote:
#!/bin/sh

PROJECT=ferrari12
VERSION=4.0
LABLE=ferrari12-1.1.25

n=1 # Line Number

oldIFS="$IFS"
IFS='|'
while read f1 f2 f3 etc
do
if [ $f1 == $PROJECT ];then
echo "Line $n: Project Matched"
if [ $f2 == $VERSION ];then
echo " Version Matched"
sed 's/$f3/$LABLE/' # Lable Replaced
else
echo " Version Not Matched"
fi
else
echo "Line $n: New Project"
fi
let "n += 1"
done < reference.txt
IFS="$oldIFS"
some how sed is not working for me there to replace lable. Do you have some logic to fit in this loop.

Please Help! Thanks Smilie

Hi.

Use double quotes in this situation -- single quotes do not allow variable expansion:
Code:
sed 's/$f3/$LABLE/' # Lable Replaced

I suggest you look over some tutorials like BASH Programming - Introduction HOW-TO ... cheers, drl

sed "s/$f3/$LABle/"
