Overwriting part of one file with part of another file using unix script or perl
Ok. I have one file that is updated with new numbers and I need to copy the data from file 1 and replace part of file 2 with the new numbers in file 1. I have attached file1 & file2 in their entirety. Basically if I have this below
The script needs to search for the part of the script below then replace only the data in column 5 (I believe its 5 but perhaps the script should check for the first characters that contain E+) with the new data above but only the portion above. Nothing else needs to be changed.
