shell script

basically i have to modify the file and change a paramter as well as run gmake and confirm it is successfully.

Can some one assist on how to write a script for this below.

cd /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10/src/include

vi pg_config_manual.h (vi this file)

##change to 32768
/*#define BLCKSZ        8192*/                                                                        
#define BLCKSZ  32768                                                                         

cd /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10

gmake

here is what i get when i grep BLCKSZ on that file

i did execute the above command. not working .please advise  

* BLCKSZ must be a power of 2.  The maximum possible value of BLCKSZ
 * Changing BLCKSZ requires an initdb.
#define BLCKSZ  8192
 * BLCKSZ; relations bigger than that are divided into multiple files.
 * RELSEG_SIZE * BLCKSZ must be less than your OS' limit on file size.
#define RELSEG_SIZE (0x40000000 / BLCKSZ)
 * Size of a WAL file block.  This need have no particular relation to BLCKSZ.
 * XLOG_BLCKSZ must be a power of 2, and if your system supports O_DIRECT I/O,
 * XLOG_BLCKSZ must be a multiple of the alignment requirement for direct-I/O
 * Changing XLOG_BLCKSZ requires an initdb.
#define XLOG_BLCKSZ             8192
 * and larger than XLOG_BLCKSZ (preferably, a great deal larger than
 * XLOG_BLCKSZ).
 * pg_proc's index; BLCKSZ larger than 8K would allow more).  Values larger

[root@rhel5 scripts]# sed 's/#define BLCKSZ 8192/#define BLCKSZ  32768/' /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10/src/include/pg_config_manual.h

when i run the above command its not working. its giving so much line of output. without trying to edit the file i am trying to see if its finding the changes first.

[root@rhel5 scripts]# grep '#define BLCKSZ' /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10/src/include/pg_config_manual.h
#define BLCKSZ  8192

[root@rhel5 scripts]# grep '#define BLCKSZ  8192' /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10/src/include/pg_config_manual.h

why grep is not picking up exact word with 8192. I even put the right number of spaces.

sed -n 's/#define BLCKSZ[[:space:]][[:space:]]*8192/#define BLCKSZ  32768/' /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10/src/include/pg_config_manual.h

will show you the changes

sed -i tmp 's/^#define[[:space:]][[:space:]]*BLCKSZ[[:space:]][[:space:]]*8192/#define BLCKSZ  32768/' /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10/src/include/pg_config_manual.h

will edit the file inplace (using a .tmp for the temp file)

you probably don't care about the default value for BLKSZ so this would be simpler

sed -i tmp 's/^#define[[:space:]][[:space:]]*BLCKSZ.*/#define BLCKSZ  32768/' /usr/local/src/postgresql-8.2.10/src/include/pg_config_manual.h
