I'm sorry, have pasted incorrectly the code, exit 0 was already after the loop

Data what is not working with this?

Code:
#! /bin/bash
pattern="good"
rm sctfile.raw 2>/dev/null
for zf in *.dat; do
  sed 's/$pattern/$pattern \n/g' $zf >tempf
  numpat=$(cat tempf | grep "$pattern" | wc -l)
  echo $numpat","$zf >>sctfile.raw
done
sort -nr sctfile.raw >sctfile.srt

I suspect that the sed is not forcing the newline; thus count not correct. The count only reflects the number of original lines where the $pattern was found. Please confirm.

I suspect that the sed is not forcing the newline; thus count not correct. The count only reflects the number of original lines where the $pattern was found. Please confirm.
The code is:
Code:
rm sctfile.raw 2>/dev/null	# Elimina i msg di err

for zf in *.txt; do


sed 's/$pattern_da_cercare/$pattern_da_cercare \n/g' $zf >tempf
# numpat=$(cat $zf | grep "$pattern_da_cercare" | wc -l)
numpat=$(cat tempf | grep "$pattern_da_cercare" | wc -l)



echo $numpat","$zf >>sctfile.raw
done

sort -nr sctfile.raw >sctfile.srt

The error message now is:
cat: tempf: No such file or directory
sed: numpat=: No such file or directory
sed: 13\rnumpat=: No such file or directory
sed: 0: No such file or directory


I don't understand why, Smilie

It seems that you have unexpected characters in the script.
Have you ftp the script in binary mode?
Do you see some characters like ^M in vi?

I don't understand what you talk about in your 1st qyestion, do you talk about the FTP protocol?

>Do you see some characters like ^M in vi?
I did't edited the script with VI, I used XCODE and text editor (Mac OS X software)
But when I edited the script with VI....
YES I see ^M characters.

What does it mean?

ladies and gentleman now I don't have errors any more!

The code that I use now is:


Code:
rm sctfile.raw 2>/dev/null	# Elimina i msg di err

for zf in *.txt; do


sed 's/$pattern_da_cercare/$pattern_da_cercare \n/g' $zf >tempf
numpat=$(cat tempf | grep "$pattern_da_cercare" | wc -l)


echo $numpat","$zf >>sctfile.raw
done

sort -nr sctfile.raw >sctfile.srt

exit 0

BUT It still not count more then 1 word if in that line the pattern have already been found.

How can I modify it?

What does it mean?
If you transfer a file in binary mode it also copies the hex x0D characters at the end of the lines.
In DOS/Windows text files a line ends with CR/LF while on *nix systems a line ends with a LF (hex 0A).
You can converse the file if you have the utility dos2ux on your system.
An alternative is:
Code:
tr -d \\r < win.txt > unix.txt
