Convert DOS Batch file into Shell script

Hi, I have a Dos Batch file and I want to convert it into Linux script because I may run the batch file in the different enviroment. Please ignore the -- or -, it is the option of the commerical software PLINK.

set PLINK=\\Sun\GroupData\APP\plink\plink.exe
set src=\\Sun\GroupData\ABC\Englind\Impute
set pheno_path=\\Sun\GroupData\ABC\XYZ\plink_input
set pheno=%1
set chr=%2

if not exist %pheno%\nul mkdir %pheno%
%PLINK% --bfile %src%\bed\chr%chr% ^
 --pheno-name logh ^
 --assoc ^
 --qt-means --out %pheno%\chr%chr%

Open in new window


Thanks

Instead of set operator in windows scripting  in linux  use export

e.g.,
export  src=\\Sun\GroupData\ABC\Englind\Impute

and you can wirte the if condition similar to below

if [ -nf  /x/x ]; then
echo "Hai"
els
echo "Hello"
fi

if the file /x/x exists display Hello else Hai.

You have to convert manually, line by line from windows to Korn shell scripting

I assume that there is a UNIX/Linux equivalent of the "plink.exe" command, presumably called "plink".  It woudl be easiest to mount \\Sun\Groupdata onto a local directory before you start (as the root user):
mkdir /mnt/groupdata
mount //Sun/GroupData /mnt/groupdata

Open in new window

Then the script would be as follows, with the same 2 parameters as the DOS one:
PLINK=/mnt/groupadta/APP/plink/plink
src=/mnt/groupdata/ABC/Englind/Impute
pheno_path=/mnt/groupdata/ABC/XYZ/plink_input
pheno=$1
chr=$2

if [ -d $pheno ]; then
  mkdir $pheno
fi
$PLINK --bfile $src/bed/chr${chr} \
 --pheno-name logh \
 --assoc \
 --qt-means --out $pheno/chr${chr}

Open in new window

Why do you always see errors *after* posting?  :-(

The if test should be "if [ ! -d $pheno ]" (missed !)
