Shell Script to read 500files from the command line
I use a shell script(see below) which takes 500 *.gz files(space separated) from the command line zcats them and passes the output to a second command via pipe pipe.(cmd a |cmd b|cmd c).But this method produces a data loss.Either all files are not read or the complete output is not escalated over the pipe.There is no error message returned.
Ps:The entire command(myzcat .sh @filelist|cmd b|cmd c ) is executed in Perl using IPC::Run module.The script has been thoroughly checked and defnitely 500 files are passsed as input to it.
Can anyone help me out in identifying the problem.
Shell Script used
echo "$filelist"|xargs zcat
if [ $? -eq 2 ]; then
I would make sure you don't pass more than 4096 characters at a time.
