12 Ways to Parse a file

A common thing in shell scripting. I came across this script that will be useful for people learning to write script.

Code:
#!/usr/bin/ksh
#
# SCRIPT: 12_ways_to_parse.ksh.ksh
#
#
# REV: 1.2.A
#
# PURPOSE:  This script shows the different ways of reading
#       a file line by line.  Again there is not just one way
#       to read a file line by line and some are faster than
#       others and some are more intuitive than others.
#
# REV LIST:
#
#       03/15/2002 - Randy Michael
#       Set each of the while loops up as functions and the timing
#       of each function to see which one is the fastest.
#
#######################################################################
#
#       NOTE: To output the timing to a file use the following syntax:
#
#          12_ways_to_parse.ksh file_to_process  > output_file_name 2>&1
#
#       The actaul timing data is sent to standard error, file 
#       descriptor (2), and the function name header is sent
#       to standard output, file descriptor (1).
#
#######################################################################
#
# set -n  # Uncomment to check command syntax without any execution
# set -x  # Uncomment to debug this script
#
