Comparing ASCII file to file list
Posted on 2004-09-22
I am really trying to get the hang of UNIX shell scripting so I am attempting some real weird tasks. One such that I am having trouble with is as follows:
I am trying to take a list of function calls in an ASCII file and find out if there is a corresponding man page to it. I know the parameters to find out if a man page exists, but my question is, "how do I iterate through the file 1 line at a time and make the comparison to the list given to me in standard output (or another file)?"
