unix - how to execute a command through shell

Hello Experts,

I have written the following code:

#!/bin/bash
who | while read x; do
   echo $x | grep '.co.uk' | cut -d' ' -f2;
done

Open in new window


What I want to do is find out if any users have logged in to the system through a ".co.uk" domain.  If they have then I want to run skill -KILL -t <terminal> against that entry.

How do I amend this code to get this working?

Thanks!

if u run sybase then do the following:

isql -U<username> -P<password> -i<shell_script_path> -o<output_log_file>

make sure u have permissions to run the script

Hi,

No, we don't run sybase.

In a nutshell, I want to do the following:

1) Execute the 'who' command to see who is logged on to the system
2) If the user is logged in from a '.co.uk' domain then log them off using their terminal id (taken from the who command).

I hope that clarifies matters.

Thanks

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

Hi,

Ok, showing my negligible experience in this!

What I want to do is run a cron which executes every minute.
How can I kick out the terminal (hence skill -KILL) that resonates from a .co.uk address?

Thanks

Something like:

#!/bin/bash
who | grep '\.co\.uk' | while read u trm dt tm hst; do
   skill -kill -t $trm
done

Open in new window


So, we do the grep for .co.uk in one go for the entire who output (the dots are escaped, because "." in a grep regular expression means "any character", and ".co.uk" would match "acoruk.com, for example - we want it to match an actual ".").  Then I use the "read" to split the record into separate fields - $u will contain the first field on the line, $trm the second, $dt the third, $tm the fourth, and $hst the rest of the line.  We know that the terminal ID is the second field, so we use "skill" on $trm.  This will repeat for all lines with ".co.uk" in them.
