File operations are failing inside the script


does any one know the environmental parameter that I have to set so as to make sure the file operations run properly within the script.

right now when I am doing a cat from within the script nothing happens, same is the case when I do a grep. when I am doing awk '{print $0 }' its printing the script name like the shell variable instead of the awk variable.

any idea\suggestion?

Please provide more information. When you say "nothing happens", what do you mean?

Please post the contents of the script, the file that you're trying to read.
