read config file parameter values


Hi,

I have a config file as follows
Code:
tpconfig.env

A=value-1
B=value-2
C=value-3
I know I can do this for get each line
Code:
param=`grep -i A filename`
But this only gives me
Code:
A=value-1
How go I check for '=' in the above string(substring)?

How do I get the individual values for A,B,C in ksh?
I don't mind using awk within ksh.

I searched this forum, but found only solutions for C or Java.

Thanks

Just source the file:

Code:
. /somedir/tpconfig.env
(that's a period-space at the begining of the line)

This will make the variables assigned part of the environment of the current script.

Thanks for the reply. However I am not looking to source this file.

So far I have this
Code:
awk -F "=" '            \
$1=="A"                 \
{                       \
  if ($2 == "value-1")  \
      print "yipee";    \
  else                  \
      print "oops";     \
                        \
 }                      \
' /etc/tpconfig.env
Where do I put the else if?

I want something like this
Code:
if $1="A"
{
    if ($2="value-1")
        action-1
    else
        action-2
    end if
}
elsif $1="B"
{
     if ($2="value-2")
        action-1
    else
        action-2
    end if
}
.
.
.

Thanks
