I have the following Shell Script  where it replacing old string/lines with new lines in a
file (actually it is a makefile)
The script works halfway though, , since when it encounters space or tab it does not replace old strings/lines

My question is using this K-Shell Script
                 1. how to take care space or tab fro the replacement ?
                  2. I want to add a new line (LINK = cc -G -mt -o) in all files  ?
                 3. I am running the script against one file

sed -f test.sed input.txt > output.txt



Instead how can I  run the script against all 100 files ( they are all same type makefile) ?

Following is the script I am using

!/bin/ksh
#
#The script substitute old lines with new lines in *.mak file

s/-D_HPUX_SOURCE -DFND_HPUX/-D__sun -DFND_SUN/
s/-Dfnd_hp -c -Aa $(DEBUG) +O2 +DS897/-Dfnd_sun \$(DEBUG) -c -Xa -O -xcg92 -xcode=pic32/
s/LINKFLAGS     =  -Wl,-B,immediate,+s,-q/#LINKFLAGS     =  -Wl,-B,immediate,+s,-q/
LINK = cc -G -mt -o/

#Run Syntax
#sed -f test.sed input.txt > output.txt

Thanks :)

Hi dmshawkat,

In the second line you need to escape the first $, too.   $(DEBUG)


Good Luck!

ls -1 input* | while read infile                           # generate flist of filenames (could use find instead of ls)

do                                                                  # loop
   
    outfile=`echo $infile | sed s!input!output!`     # create output filename
 
    sed -f test.sed $infile > $outfile                     # edit contents  

done                                                               # end loop


OR if you want to overwrite original:

ls -1 input* | while read infile                           # generate flist of filenames (could use find instead of ls)

do                                                                  # loop
   
    sed -f test.sed $infile > /tmp/tempf$$           # edit contents  

    cp /tmp/tempf$$  $infile                               # overwrite original

done                                                               # end loop


Cheers

write above 4 line in file called test.sed, then

ok, may be the + needs to be escaped if you're using Gnu sed
but I assumed standard AT&T sed 'cause we're in Unix TA :-)
