need help in finding a string and to send an email using shell script

Hi All

i am writing a shell script which will search for a string "expires". once the search string is found it has to give the email address as the output and send an email to the person

This is basically to find the encrypetd keys which are loaded in the unix server

Below are sample keys not the true values:

pub 5858D/58585255EF 2007-10-02 unicorn01516008 <uniccrn@fund.com>
sub 452659g/97974545df 2007-10-02 [expires: 2008-06-22]


once i run the shell script it will execute the command gpg --list-keys and then search for the string and the output should be like this ::

unicorn01516008 <uniccrn@fund.com> Expires on 2008-06-22 and this has to be emailed to some xxxx@xxxx.com

can you please help me in giving me some sample code !!!

Thanks a lot for your help!!!

Question All one one line?

Is the text in the file

pub 5858D/58585255EF 2007-10-02 unicorn01516008 <uniccrn@fund.com>
sub 452659g/97974545df 2007-10-02 [expires: 2008-06-22]

all on one line? Thus, one line per license key entry?

and are these entries all within some file called xxx.txt?

They are in seperate lines

all the informations are loaded into xxx.txt

Thanks!!

sub 452659g/97974545df 2007-10-02 [expires: 2008-06-22]

They are in seperate lines but if it searches for expires , it has to get this result (unicorn01516008 <uniccrn@fund.com>) as they are interrelated

and all these informations are loaded in some output files xxx.txt

Tools Try this one...

Code:
#! /bin/bash

admin=me@mycompany.com

rm sample_key.mat 2>/dev/null
cat sample_key.txt | grep "expire" >sample_key.mat

while read zf
   do
#      echo $zf
      fld1=$(echo $zf | cut -d" " -f4)
      fld2=$(echo $zf | cut -d" " -f5)
      fld3=$(echo $zf | cut -d" " -f9)
      fld4=$(echo $zf | cut -d" " -f10)

      subj="Expiring certificate"  
      mesg="$fld1 $fld2 $fld3 $fld4"
      echo $mesg

      echo "$mesg" | mailx -s "$subj" "$admin" 


done < sample_key.mat

rm sample_key.mat 2>/dev/null

Make sure to adjust the admin variable at the top. Seemed to work with a file which I used as a sample:

Code:
cat sample_key.txt
pub 5858D/58585255EF 2007-10-02 unicorn01516008 <uniccrn1@fund.com> sub 452659g/97974545df 2007-10-02 [expires: 2008-06-22]
