I would like to have data in a "here doc" and be able to set several variables from the matching here doc line

example:

Here doc

 fred,10.10.10.10,dell
barny,10.10.10.11,toshiba
wilma,10.10.10.12,hp

 

if `hostname`= barney
ip = 10.10.10.11
make = Toshiba

I want the matching row in the data to set all the variables.  

If this is not clear I can explain more

while read h i m ; do
  if [ `hostname` == $h ] ; then
    ip=$i
    make=$m
 fi
done << here
fred,10.10.10.10,dell
barny,10.10.10.11,toshiba
wilma,10.10.10.12,hp
here

Open in new window

If that code is in a file, you need to source it, not execute it

Better try "grep":
==> cat m0
cat - <<! >here.txt
fred,10.10.10.10,dell
barny,10.10.10.11,toshiba
wilma,10.10.10.12,hp
!
IFS=','
grep 'barny' here.txt|read host ip make
echo "hostname=$host ip=$ip make=$make"

==> ./m0
hostname=barny ip=10.10.10.11 make=toshiba
==>

Open in new window
