Help me streamline this counting part of my script.
Ok, so this is a small part of a script I wrote to build disk groups using VXVM. The only problem is that I am limited to a count of 8 maximum. If I want more, I will have to add more lines of "if" statements. How can I accomplish the same thing, in a few lines, but not be limited in the max count?
A 'continue' is normally only used (and needed) while inside some kind of loop - causing the execution to skip the rest of the processing and continue with the next iteration. Thus, your 'continue' may be not needed.
What is you final desired result? That count.txt file?
I put the counts back because of a syntax error I was getting.
What error?? don't forget you need the keep the ;; in each of the selections for a case statement.
If you really want to be unlimited, why use if or case?
You could set a variable, say MAX_CNT to the input supplied to your script,
set alphabet=2, and create a "while loop <less than or equal to MAX_CNT" add one more to alphabet. This way there's no limit at all to your script.
I need help making a script run faster since I have a huge file to sift through. The file I am running my script on looks like this:
1 -1.9E+001 -1.8E-001 1.5E+001 3.32E+001
2 -1.7E+001 -1.0E-002 1.2E+001 6.37E+001
3 -1.5E+001 -3.8E-006 6.7E+001 4.81E+001
