I have another problem. I am totally new to linux. I have been given one document and in that the paths are like this i.e./home/cdot/c4/ose. My mam has asked me to replace the path i.e. /home/cdot/ with some variable. How could I do this?
Thanku for the reply but still its not working.
Here is the error which i am getting.
./script: line 11: /home/cdot/c4/ose/site: is a directory
./script: line 12: /home/cdot/c4/ACE_wrappers/TAO: is a directory
./script: line 13: =/home/cdot: No such file or directory
[root@hpv2k-57 c4]# pwd
I have been given one code and I have been asked to grep /home/cdot/c4 path in the code. Some where in the Makefiles this path is hardcoded. I have to find those paths and document it. Then I
have to replace those path with the variable where one can specify the path from my
script. I am unable to do dis.
I have found the path and it is
OSE_ROOT=/home/cdot/c4/ose and the other path is
I have to replace only home/cdot with the variable.
This is the kind of script. Its not the exact script
My mam has asked me to search for the path /home/cdot/c4 nd replace /home/cdot with some variable so that it could be assessed by that variable instead of the directory.
tar -xvf ose.tar
ln -s config-linux.h config.h
ln -s platform_linux.GNU platform_macros.GNU
chmod +x bldsixax
problem while replacing a directory with the variable
There are some scripts made in the path root/c4/build and in that scripts we have used the path /home/cdot/c4. So i want to replace /home/cdot path with some variable. Rightnow I am acccessing my scripts from root/c4. I want to write a script in root so dat in the scripts, home/cdot path gets replaced with that variable. How can I do that?
