I have 100 files looking like this.
<html>
<body>
.....
</body>
</html>
---
I need to add the below line right above the <body> line in each of the above 100 files.

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE='JavaScript'>parent.frames.help.location.href = "/sun1/p1?in_p=test";</SCRIPT>

I need a sed script to do this please. I am using kshell in sun solaris unix box.

AMIT G. ALREADY GAVE ME A SOLUTION FOR THE ABOVE.

The solution is
for i in "*.html"
do
    sed 's#<body>#<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">parent.frames.help.location.href
= "/sun1/p1?in_p=test";</SCRIPT><body>#' $i > /tmp/$i.$$
    mv /tmp/$i.$$
done

-------------------------

THE NEW NEED IS,
WHEN THE <BODY> TAG IS IN MIXED CASE THE ABOVE SOLUTION DOES NOT WORK.

Thanks

Change

sed 's#<body>#<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">parent.frames.help.location.href
= "/sun1/p1?in_p=test";</SCRIPT><body>#' $i > /tmp/$i.$$

to

sed 's#<body>#<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">parent.frames.help.location.href
= "/sun1/p1?in_p=test";</SCRIPT><body>#i' $i > /tmp/$i.$$

You could have asked this as a followup in the previous question itself.

Hi,
That does not work.
I know a way to fix it.
Below takes care of Body or body.
But then I need to do for each char.
sed 's#<[Bb]ody>#<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">parent.frames.help.location.href
= "/sun1/p1?in_p=test";</SCRIPT><body>#' $i > /tmp/$i.$$

Do you know of any other solution?



Thanks

That should have worked. Adding i after the last # should make the match case-insensitive. Could you try again.

amit,

Give this a try:

sed 's#<\([bB][oO][dD][yY]\)>#<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">parent.frames.help.
location.href = "/sun1/p1?in_p=test";</SCRIPT><\1>#' $1 > /tmp/$i.$$

There is no need to use [bB] expression as i flag is already there for this situation.

Amit,

Oops, instead of the OP I put your name by mistake.
BTW, I tried the i flag but it doesn't work in Solaris. Perhaps you are using some other version of sed like gnu sed?
