I am having a problem with a script I am writing. It is a simple kind of script which joins a few files, spits out a csv file and then I call a perl script to convert it to html.
The following 3 lines are giving me trouble:
#I know I could do the sort all in the join line - but I find this more readable
sort -t, -k2 /tmp/proxmox/nmap_net0_join > /tmp/proxmox/sorted_nmap_net0_join
sort -t, -k1 /tmp/proxmox/qmlist | sed 's/ /,/g' > /tmp/proxmox/sorted_qmlist
join -t, -11 -22 /tmp/proxmox/sorted_qmlist /tmp/proxmox/sorted_nmap_net0_join >/tmp/proxmox/statusinfo 2>/tmp/proxmox/log
If I execute each line individually in a command prompt the statusinfo file is generated correctly. However if I execute the script I get a "join: file 1 is not in sorted order" exception in the log. What am I missing?
The bash -x option was new for me. I haven't solved the problem yet, but now I have more info to work with. I will sprinkle the script with echos and other output so I know what is happening at that stage.
(NA where there is no matching data). I have tried with simple left and right joins (using -a and -e options) as well as initial g/awk attempts (don't really graps awk yet). not working as expected yet. Any thoughts?
