Loop over lines in text file?


Hi,

I have a generated text file which looks like this (see below):

87.123.231.21 MANCHESTER
87.123.231.27 LONDON
87.123.231.28 GLASGOW

...I need to loop over EACH line (I can access each col..) but I can't figure out a way to do this in BASH scripting.

Can anyone tell me the syntax?

Thanks

cat <text> | while read line; do
#split space separated to array
line=( ${line} )
echo -n "${line[0]}" # This is the IP address
echo "${line[1]}" # This is the City
done
