Hello

I am trying to write a K-Shell script that will modify certain lines ( same line across files)
in multiple files.

Example:  A line exist as
HPUXCFLAGS      = -I. $(INC) -I$(FNDROOT)/include \
                  -D_HPUX_SOURCE -DFND_HPUX \
                  -Dfnd_hp $(DEBUG) -c +z -Aa -Ae +O2 +DS897 -I$(ORACLE_HOME) precomp/public

I have to replace the above lines by

HPUXCFLAGS      = -I. $(INC) -I$(FNDROOT)/include \
                  -D__sun -DFND_SUN \
                  -Dfnd_sun $(DEBUG) -c -Xa -O -xcg92 -xcode=pic32      -I$(ORACLE_HOME)/precomp/public

Also a line exist as

 LINK = ld -b -o
 
The above line need to be replaced by

LINK = cc -G -mt -o

Hi dmshawkat,

Will you supply a list of filenames as arguments to the script, or do you want it run on all the files in a directory, or what?

Are you willing to have a ksh and Perl solution (do you have Perl on your system)?

`command to list files ie ls -1` | while read filen
do
  cat $filen       | sed s!-D_HPUX_SOURCE -DFND_HPUX!-D__sun -DFND_SUN!g > /tmp/tp1
  cat /tmp/tp1  | sed s!-Dfnd_hp \$\(DEBUG\) -c +z -Aa -Ae +O2 +DS897!-Dfnd_sun $(DEBUG) -c -Xa -O -xcg92 -xcode=pic32!g > /tmp/tp2
  cat /tmp/tp2  | sed s!LINK = ld -b -o!LINK = cc -G -mt -o!g > /tmp/tp1
 
  ......... I've escaped \ the $ , ( and ) - but you might have to escape - and + ; try it
  ......... repeat sed s!some pattern!replacement pattern!g .... using tp1 and tp2 untill you've finished all substitutions - then

  cp /tmp/tp1 $filen  OR   cp /tmp/tp2 $filen  # whichever temporary file you finished last with.
done
rm -f /tmp/tp1 /tmp/tp2


Cheers
JJ

Hi dmshawkat,

Looks as if these points went to me instead of JJ.
Please ask the moderator to correct that.

Thanks.
