comparison of strings in unix shell scripting



echo "########### SQL SESSION STARTED ###########"

VALUE=`sqlplus -S /nolog << THEEND

connect tcupro/tcupro_dev@bdd1optn 
        V_STORAGE_TYPE   varchar2(3);
         V_ERR_MSG  varchar2(255) ;
	 V_LOG_LEVEL varchar2(200);



echo $VALUE >./logs/TCU-`date '+%Y%m%d-%H%M%S'`-PURGE.log

Actuall this $value will have ' Success,Pl/sql procedure completed successfully.'
So I want to check that variable $value has success word or not.
and on the basis of that want to return exit code.

echo $VALUE >./logs/TCU-`date '+%Y%m%d-%H%M%S'`-PURGE.log
echo "$VALUE" | grep -q 'SUCCESS' 
return $?

will return 1 on failure 0 on success - is that what you mean?
