Cat Help needed

I am unable to use a basic script in cygwin. Please help me out.

Script used :

echo "Lucent MSC1" 
echo "===========" 
echo "Orig_MSCID Summary Top 10" 
cat k1.txt | grep -i orig_mscid | sort | uniq -c  
echo "Hourly Summary" 
cat k1.txt | grep "#" | cut -c 10-11 | uniq -c 
echo Bye

Error :

$ ./TLDN.txt
Lucent MSC1
Orig_MSCID Summary Top 10
: No such file or directory
Hourly Summary
: No such file or directory

However the file exist in the folder.

$ pwd

sgupt023@sgupt023-c420 ~
$ cd 09oct

sgupt023@sgupt023-c420 ~/09oct
$ ls
2.txt  4.txt  5.txt  6.txt  K1.txt  K2.txt  TLDN.TXT  a.txt  cgrep

change the filename to a full file specification, example: /home/sgupt023/k1.txt,
or add a line in the very top of the script
cd /home/sgutpt023

Thanks. Tried both the solutions. But still not working.Smilie

Executing the script as individual line works.

sgupt023@sgupt023-c420 ~/09oct
: No such file or directoryme/sgupt023
Lucent MSC1
Orig_MSCID Summary Top 10
: No such file or directory
Hourly Summary
: No such file or directory

sgupt023@sgupt023-c420 ~/09oct
$ pwd

In your script I see k1.txt and that directory shows K1.txt. Not sure about cygwin but usually unix/linux is case sensitive.

Are you sure you are in the correct directory when you execute your script? It looks like you are sometimes calling the script with .TXT and sometimes with .txt. I would try making all filenames lowercase and making them all lowercase in your script as well.

Also, when you tried the full filename specification, did you use "/home/sgupt023/k1.txt" or "/home/sgupt023/09oct/k1.txt"? Looks like the files are in the 09oct directory, so the latter is the correct one to use.
