To be truly honest I have no idea why was it done like that in first place...

May be the idea was/is to capture output + errors all in a single log file , could that justify the intention?

Thanks for your info. Now getting it slowly and steadily

I might have missed something, but to me the obvious answer would be that the following line:
Code:
find . -type f -print | xargs p4 have > outfile
is sending its output to "outfile", obviously, and then the errored information, ie. 'file(s) not on client.', is being sent to stderr??

So is it now not just a choice to either send both to awk or at least stderr?
Code:
find . -type f -print | xargs p4 have |& awk -F"[ /]" '/not on/{print $2}'

@grail the problem is
Code:
find . -type f -print | xargs p4 have > outfile
is not sending error output - file(s) not on client. to outfile but on terminal and that is causing us the grief.

If that would have sent to outfile then extracting file name from outfile and processing it would have been easy task.
Now if I type on command prompt, exactly the way you have given.
Code:
find . -type f -print | xargs p4 have |& awk -F"[ /]" '/not on/{print $2}'
gives me syntax error

Code:
find . -type f -print | xargs p4 have & awk -F"[ /]" '/not on/{print $2}'
keep on hanging until I do Ctl C to come out from loop.

Code:
find . -type f -print | xargs p4 have & awk -F"[ /]" '/not on/{print $2}'
Gives the desired output of error files but only on screen.
If I try to redirect output to a log file there is nothing in logfile...

Has it occurred to you to try
Code:
find . -type f -print | xargs p4 have 2>&1 | awk -F"[ /]" '/not on/{print $2}'
?

It's equivalent to |&, but may not cause the syntax error.

Interesting enough! this give output of error files - not on client in 1.log log file.

Code:
find . -type f -print | xargs p4 have 2>&1 | awk -F"[ /]" '/not on/' 2>&1 | tee -a 1.log
Sample output from 1.log is as follows.

Code:
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_start.sh - file(s) not on client.
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_test.sh - file(s) not on client.
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_schema_upgrade_oragensec.sh - file(s) not on client.
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_source_release_record.sh - file(s) not on client
I want to extract only name of files so output should give
ccb_start.sh
ccb_test.sh
ccb_schema_upgrade_oragensec.sh
ccb_source_release_record.sh

Seems that we are moving closer

Looking at that all you need to do is to modify your awk statement a little bit to achieve that.

Code:
find . -type f -print | xargs p4 have 2>&1 | awk -F"[ /]" '/not on/{print $4}' 2>&1 | tee -a 1.log
Should do it if my counting wasn't off :)


Cheers,
Tink

Is it possible to get name of file(I mean full path of file except "- file(s) not on client."

I tried to play around with awk but not much success..

so
Code:
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_start.sh - file(s) not on client.
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_test.sh - file(s) not on client.
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_schema_upgrade_oragensec.sh - file(s) not on client.
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_source_release_record.sh - file(s) not on client
Should come as
Code:
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_start.sh
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_test.sh
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_schema_upgrade_oragensec.sh
./ahscripts/ccb_backup2/ccb_source_release_record.sh
This would revolutionize the whole process...

Sure. Change the delimiter to "[ -]" instead, and print $1.
