How do I zip and attach the output data of a grep | awk | mail shell script?


I need the output data of the following shell script to be zipped up and mail as an attachement for a Windows recipient. What can I do?

grep "^From *" abuse.axis | awk '{print $2}' | mail -s “Abuse Complaints “ admin@mydomain.com

Thanks

As far as I know the mail command can just handle simple text. So you might want to try using a mailing program which does support attachments.

If however you are stuck on using the mail command then you'll have to add the attachment as a MIME part. I'm not sure on the complete syntax for that you'll probably have to look that up. But you could zip the output using gzip and then use the tool uuencode to change it to ASCII data. Then insert it into the mail along with the extension header. Winzip should read gzip files without any problems but if you want it to be a windows zip file then you'll have to use a utility for linux which creates pkzip files.
