read file and analyze position


Trying to write a script;
1. to read a defined file (each line)
2. select a defined position in line (30) and place in temp-variable.
3. scan file for name.$temp-variable.
4. if found generate an email found.
5. if not generate email not found.

1. & 2. has me stumped?
any ideas?

you can use awk to do the same....something like below goes in your shell script

FILENAME="myfile"

awk 'BEGIN {POS="30"}
{

/* your code execouted for each line of file */

}' $FILENAME
