Also, would remove all of the ">> $LOGFILE" nonsense. Batch scripts should be logged in their entirety, which I discussed here:

https://www.unix.com/shell-programmin...#post302148874


If you take my suggestion and just redirect all shell stdout/stderr to the logfile, then you can remove all the ">> $LOGFILE" code. Not that there's anything WRONG with doing that per se, it's just ugly and cumbersome.

I did the way you suggested. It says line 53 unexpected end of file.

EOF

Whenvee you create a "here" doc using "<< EOF", the terminating "EOF" must be alone, on it's own line, no leading spaces, no comments, no nuthin'.

The code you posted above does not even have 53 lines, so I'm assuming it's a snippet.

The error message "unexpected end of file" usually means there's a mismatched quote somewhere (including a mismatched EOF pair).

You never said which shell this was...you should try "sh -n <SCRIPTNAME>" to perform a syntax check, which can sometimes find the faulty line (as opposed to blaming the last line of the script).
