trying to write a script to loop through a port info file

Below is part of a script i have written to loop through part of a port info file. How do i continue the script to get info for OS Device Name, manufacturer and then put information into an array?

HBA Port WWN: 10000000c9420b4b
OS Device Name: /dev/cfg/c10
Manufacturer: Emulex
Model: LP10000DC-S
Firmware Version: 1.92a1
FCode/BIOS Version: none
Type: N-port
State: online
Supported Speeds: 1Gb 2Gb
Current Speed: 2Gb
Node WWN: 20000000c9420b4b



if [ -f $PORT_INFOFILE ]; then

# read port info

fcinfo hba-port >> $PORT_INFOFILE 2>&1

cat $PORT_INFOFILE | while read line; do

x=`echo $line | grep "HBA Port"`
if [ -n $x ]; then

Here is simple framework you can work with.


cat data | while read one two
   case $one in 
      "HBA" ) echo "HBA is $two"
      * ) echo "one=[$one] two=[$two]"

$ ./parse.file
HBA is Port WWN: 10000000c9420b4b
one=[OS] two=[Device Name: /dev/cfg/c10]
one=[Manufacturer:] two=[Emulex]
one=[Model:] two=[LP10000DC-S]
one=[Firmware] two=[Version: 1.92a1]
one=[FCode/BIOS] two=[Version: none]
one=[Type:] two=[N-port]
one=[State:] two=[online]
one=[Supported] two=[Speeds: 1Gb 2Gb]
one=[Current] two=[Speed: 2Gb]
one=[Node] two=[WWN: 20000000c9420b4b]

actually. this is even better and gives you an array like you wanted.


cat data | while read line
   set -A array $line
   echo "array[0]=${array[0]}"
   echo "array[1]=${array[1]}"
   # ... you get the point
