General :: Write A Bash Script That Will Read The Word From The Text File?
Jun 10, 2011
I have a text file that contains a single word and I want to write a bash script that will read the word from the text file... The following is my incorrect attempt, as it assigns the name of the textfile to the variable as opposed to the word stored within the textfile:(assume I have a text file value.txt that has its contents a single word, say wordone)
for f in value.txt
so the output of the above script is value.txt, however I want it to be wordone.to summarise: how do I assign the value of the word contained within a textfile to a variable?

I was looking for something like
exit 0 The input would be A-Z a-z 0-9 and have a single space between each word.

I need to chop of the top 30ish lines of several log files until a line starting with "Initialization completed."The trouble is that it's not always the same amount of lines that need to be deleted, and they don't always contain the same information, which is why I would need to delete everything priorhe line starting with "Initialization completed."Right now I have a little script I wrote based on looping each file through several "grep -v" commands with each known pattern of lines I want to ignore, but it is tedious and I have to inspect each file afterwards to make sure nothing is left from above "Initialization completed

I'm having a slight dilemma on reading data from a text file and outputting it into a table then displaying it. Basically I'm writing a shell script that takes information from text files then outputs the data into a table with 4 headings.he extracting of the data is fine, but creating a table i'm having problems with. I think it is possible to do it using the awk function, but so far i'm having a lot of difficulties.
