Programming :: Using Grep / Variables In Bash Script

May 10, 2010

I'm trying to write a bash script and I'm having trouble with it.I have a list of DNS entires from a file called zoneExport.txt.Than I want to parse a log file to see if that DNS entry has been queried for. So I'm running a grep command and trying to save it into a variable. What I'm looking for is a variable ($varGrepQ) that has the number of matches for the grep query. I will then run this through an if statement and do some things from there..

But my problem right now is with this grep query. It keeps outputting '0' even when I know there are records in that file and when I run the same query on the command line I get the actual count. My thought is that the $record variable is not passing right.

Programming :: Counting Variables In Bash Script

Nov 13, 2010

If I read in variables entered by the user, how can I check to make sure the correct number of variables were entered? For example, after reading in a data file and making it into an array, I have:echo "To check the data, enter the first element number, last element number and step size as x y z:"read x y z.It then goes on to start a loop, but what I would like now (before the loop) is a check to see if three variables have been entered, before the rest of the script continues.

I've tried specifying the variables as $1, $2 and $3, but if I echo $#, the value comes out as zero, so it's obviously not working.

Programming :: Bash: Making A Variable Out Of Two Other Variables?

Mar 18, 2010

I need to find the value of:

Code:
$Namenumber
My script asks for the name you want to look up and I want it to return the value of $Namenumber

I was thinking:

Code:
number=$"$name"number
but this returns

Code:
$Namenumber

but does not actually resolve what the variable $Namenumber is equal to.

Programming :: Grep For Variable In A Bash Script?

Aug 19, 2010

I've tried every combination of ' " that I have come across in similar threads on the forum but no luck.. I have 2 files

strings.txt: contains a list of numbers, 4 digits per line file.
txt: contains a lines that I want to grep for the strings.

for example:

>cat strings.txt
3214
8746
2411

[code]....

if I echo $i in the loop, I print out the contents of strings.txt If I put 3214 in place of grep "<$i>" file.txt I get "carls phone number is 3214"

Programming :: BASH - Output Of Snmpget With Multiple OIDs Into Separate Variables

Jul 7, 2010

I have a problem with snmp answers being empty or having spaces.

What I already have:

#get all interface indexes (if you wonder - I'm working for a cable company and different cablemodems have different number and types of interfaces):

The problem is the physical address which is sometimes empty and the description which has spaces. So I'm doing 2 snmpgets which is slower than 1 snmpget (sometimes I have up to 18 interfaces).

I'm trying to explain it a bit simpler.

Interface 5 gives me back the following lines:

Ethernet CPE Interface

Now the first line should go into variable ifadm,
2nd line should go into variable ifoper,
3rd line should go into variable ifspeed,
4th line should go into variable iftype,
5th line (which is empty) should go into variable ifphys and finally
6th line (which has spaces) should go into variable ifdescr

Programming :: Bash Variable Parsing / Extract And Put Into Variables Each Combination Of F1 And F2 In A Loop?

Oct 14, 2010

I have a bash variable where the content looks like this where ;f1; and ;f2; are delimiters:
;f1;field1value1;f2;field2 value1 ;f1;field1value2;f2;field2 value2 ;f1;field1value3;f2;field2 value3

So what I need is to extract and put into variables each combination of f1 and f2 in a loop to something like that:

#first pass of the loop I need:
f1=field1value1
f2=field2 value1

#second pass of the loop I need:
f1=field1value2
f2=field2 value2

# third pass of the loop I need:
f1=field1value3
f2=field2 value3

Doing these commands for multiple command line file inputs is the goal. So I can just type ./script.sh *.mkv in my terminal.This is what I have so far, but it doesn't work whatsoever.

Ubuntu :: BASH Script Not Recognizing Variables

Jul 25, 2011

I'm trying to write a bash script, and for some reason Bash doesn't seem to like any of my variables _except_ the one used in a loop.What's going on? The same problem with MYS occurs regardless of its name, whether it is declared or referenced before, after, or inside the loop, and whether it is a string, integer, or floating-point number. Also, as far as I can tell, everything related to Bash is up to date.

General :: Declare Global Variables In Bash?

Jan 23, 2010

I have a problem with a very big script I wrote in bash, and now I need to modulirize it in at least four smaller scripts. The problem is, that most of the variables I have will need to be shared by all scripts.

My question is: is there a way to declare global variables in bash? So that I can use and change them in any of the scripts and every change in the variable can be "seen" by the other scripts later.

General :: Sourcing Variables From ~/.bash.rc And Keeping Them Across Logouts

Sep 7, 2011

I've been writing a bunch of bash scripts to make possible non-interactive, secure, cron-based SVN checkouts with CollabNet's SVN client and GNOME Keyring Daemon (aka GKD) and one of the scripts was designed to start GKD, harvest its output, essentially a couple of environment variables, and export those variables in shell of a user the script is run as. All upon user login by sourcing a bash script in ~/.bashrc.The problem is that those environment variables will not be exported, because the script is being run in a sub-shell that exits upon it completion and environment variables get unset for good.Well, the question is how can those variables be set permanently, meaning they're exported and kept untouched even across login-logout sessions?

Of course this doesn't actually work, but i think you get an indication of what I am trying to do.
