Else part is not working in my script

if [ $(grep -c ERROR Device.log) -o $(grep -c ERROR device gen.log) -o $(grep -c ERROR Driver.log) -gt  0 ]; then
   echo "Below are the Error Displayed log for the Run Number [$1]" >> /home/sa721493/error details
   grep ERROR Device.log  device gen.log Driver.log >>error details
   echo "No ERROR Found for the Run Number: $1"

The else part is never getting executed.

To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.

When no errors are found, the condition condenses down to:

if [ 0 -o 0 -o 0 -gt 0 ]

(zero) OR (zero) OR (zero greater than zero)

I think that this condition is always TRUE regardless of the error counts.

Try repeating the comparison between each "-o" .

if [ $(grep -c ERROR Device.log) -gt 0 -o $(grep -c ERROR device gen.log) -gt 0 -o $(grep -c ERROR Driver.log) -gt  0 ]; then
