Tools Comparing two files

Hi,

I have two files in this format. The files contain the statistics of tables as seen below. The other file is also in this format. I need to compare both the files and if there is a mismatch i need to display the contents within the break lines from both the files for that corresponding table.

Table Name: AAA
Row Count:96 SUM(F1): 3739 MAX(F1):77 MIN(F1): 0 AVG(F1): 38.9479167 LENGTH(LINE): 2260

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Table Name: AQ$_FT_Q_BECMD_G
Row Count: 0 SUM(SUBSCRIBER#):MAX(SUBSCRIBER#): MIN(SUBSCRIBER#): AVG(SUBSCRIBER#):LENGTH(NAME):SUM(ADDRESS#): MAX(ADDRESS#):MIN(ADDRESS#):AVG(ADDRESS#):

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Table Name: AQ$_FT_Q_BECMD_H
Row Count: 0 SUM(SUBSCRIBER#):MAX(SUBSCRIBER#): MIN(SUBSCRIBER#): AVG(SUBSCRIBER#):LENGTH(NAME):SUM(ADDRESS#): MAX(ADDRESS#):MIN(ADDRESS#):AVG(ADDRESS#): LENGTH(TRANSACTION_ID): SUM(DEQUEUE_USER): MAX(DEQUEUE_USER): LENGTH(DEQUEUE_USER): 50
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can anyone help me on this?

A possible way using awk :
Code:
awk '
/^Table Name/  { table = $3 ; tables[table]++                }
! NF || /^-+/  {                                        next }
NR == FNR      { stats1[table] = stats1[table] $0 ORS ; next }
               { stats2[table] = stats2[table] $0 ORS ; next }
END {
   for (t in tables) {
      if (stats1[t] != stats2[t]) {
         out = "==========================================" ORS
         out = out stats1[t] ORS stats2[t]
         print out
      }
   }
}
' stats1.dat stats2.dat

Tools Comparing two files

Hi Jean-Pierre,

Does stats1 and stats2 refer to the two input files? Will the code work if i give the path name like /home/frk/ragav/stats1 and /home/frk/ragav/stats2 instead of the file names? Then how should the code be modified?

If i assign the path like /home/frk/ragav/stats1 to a variable how can i call the path in the code?

When i assigned the file name to a variable like
a=stats1.txt
b=stats2.txt
and changed the code to

nawk '
/^Table Name/ { table = $3 ; tables[table]++ }
! NF || /^-+/ { next }
NR == FNR { $e[table] = $e[table] $0 ORS ; next }
{ $f[table] = $f[table] $0 ORS ; next }
END {
for (t in tables) {
if ($e[t] != $f[t]) {
out = "-----------------------------------------------------------------" ORS
out = out $e[t] ORS $f[t]
print out
}
}
}
' $e $f >> result.out


i am getting this error.

nawk: illegal field $()
input record number 1, file startendcut1.txt
source line number 4

Can you please help on the above two ways of modifying the code?

In my script, stats1 and stats2 inside awk code are arrays.
stats1.dat and stats2.dat are the input files.

The inputfiles can be specified with the full path.
Don't use $e and $f as arrays in your awk code, use fixed names (stats1 and stats2 or what you want like first_array and second_array...)
Code:
a=stats1.txt
b=stats2.txt

nawk '
/^Table Name/ { table = $3 ; tables[table]++ }
! NF || /^-+/ { next }
NR == FNR     { stats1[table] = stats1[table] $0 ORS ; next }
              {stats2[table] = stats2[table] $0 ORS ; next }
END {
   for (t in tables) {
      if (stats1[t] != stats2[t]) {
         out = "-----------------------------------------------------------------" ORS
         out = out stats1[t] ORS stats2[t]
         print out
      }
   }
}
' $e $f >> result.out
