Sed exit status
Posted on 2004-08-19
this is my code template
sed -e s/AAA/aaa/ -e s/BBB/bbb/ -e s/CCC/cccc/ inputfile > outputfile.$$
if [ $RC -ne 0 ]
echo "Error with exit staus $RC"
the above shell script will run concurrently at maximum 4.Somtimes the sed returns exit status 2 and the script fails saying the error message : "Error with exit status 2"
It happens sometime and sometimes its not happening.What will be the problem??
What is that exit status 2 means in sed command.
Plz explain me
Or give me some pointers or websites to study the description of the exit status 2 in the sed command.
