procedure/function not found in .ksh

Hi all ,

I am getting an error "job_procfile not found" while excecuting a .ksh script. The script is used to create control-m ( scheduler ) jobs dynamically by reading parameter files ( flat filescomma seperated )

job_procfile is a function within the .ksh script

The script is something like this ...
****************script start *********************
set string to call control-m job creation ( ctmcreate )

read parameter files and init values ( awk )

for loop based on multiple processes defined fo a stream
call job_procfile -----> (B)

if some value
call job_procfile -----> (A)
call job_start
if value is multiprocess
call job_multiprocess
call job_procfile
call job_success

# main
read files in awk ( do search to get values )
call loadstream ( to load control-m streams )

****************script end *********************

When job_procfile is called at (A) it works fine. But when called from within job_multiprocess (B) it comes up with the error message "job_procfile not found "

Any ideas ?

Thanks !

1. confirm you have "#!/bin/ksh" as the start

2. define your functions


See if that helps.

what does "call" do?
# 5  
Old 11-03-2007
sorry should have been more specific ..

I have mentioned the framework of the shell script i.e. not the entire script
"Call" refers to calling the sub routine ( procedure )

I the program itself its just

if [[ ..something ...]]
job_procfile ( i have written this down as call job_procfile for clarity )

The entire script runs over 600 lines and if required I can paste it over here ...
Thanks .

Are you sure that every function is called after it is defined?

Have you tried debugging using

#!/bin/ksh -x

as the first line?

all functions have been defined . I have missed putting the () after function names in the pseudo code. The strange bit is that the function call works from within one of the if condition blocks , but comes up with this error message when called from within a function .

Tried to debug using -x but the output lists only the code outside the functions i.e. any code the functions is not listed.
I am working on AIX 5.3 on an IBM P590 .
