echo $exclude > /tmp/testexclude
find /home/bosuser/Production/jil/* | xargs grep /home/bosuser|cut -d "." -f1|cut -d "/" -f6|uniq > /tmp/includejob
job="`cat /tmp/includejob`"
echo $job > /tmp/testinclude

for i in $job
do

if [ $i != $exclude ]

Just replace follwing line in your program and it should work.

Code:
echo "$exclude" > /tmp/testexclude
echo "$job" > /tmp/testinclude

One suggestion, Use less number of files, pipes and shell commands in script. This will help to improve performance of your script.

If this also doesnt work please let me know Smilie
