Shell Scripting
 
Hii,

I want to write a shell script so that it selects a pattern from a file and copies only that part. In this file I have to search for "Errors" pattern. If this is present I must check if it contains "ORA" in the subsequent line. If this is present then I have to copy from a line previous to the "Errors" line till the next date.
How can this be accomplished. Can anyone Help?

The file is as follows.

LQ is a volunteer-driven community effort relying on its members to supply answers if and when they want to. If you need on-demand 24/7 coverage, please consider hiring a local Linux guru, else just be patient.


And no, your question isn't difficult but you wrote

which means:
A) you want to write the script. In that case you do the research (http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prog-Intro-HOWTO.html,
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginne...tml/index.html), post what script you've got and we help you after that. This is the preferred way since you actually learn something.
B) you require a fellow LQ member to write the script for you (needs only a "while" loop and two tests). In that case you rephrase your demand as a polite question and exercise patience.

You could probably do it using either sed or awk.

If you used sed, it will probably be a lot easier coming to a solution if you inserted an empty line before each date.
Code:

$ sed -r '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/i\
' logfile | ...

That would allow a range like this:
$ sed -rn '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/,/^$/{
...
}

Then you could add each line to the working buffer inside the range and when you reach /^$/, test for the pattern '\nORA'. If it is found, print out the working buffer.

You might want to test this out:
Code:

$ sed -r '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/i\
' junk | sed -rn '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/,/^$/{
                                                      /^$/!H
                                                    /^$/{
                                                          x
                                                          /ORA/p
                                                        }
                                                    }'

It needs some debugging so that the last entry isn't missed. The input file I used didn't end in a empty line so that range wasn't counted.

Here I'll cheat:
Code:

echo >>junk
$ sed -r '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/i\
' junk | sed -rn '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/,/^$/{
                                                      /^$/!H
                                                    /^$/{
                                                          x
                                                          /ORA/p
                                                        }
                                                    }'

Now the log ends in an empty space and the last entry output.

Thanks JSCHIWAL. But I could not understand the program can u help me out with it? Also it should print only if both Errors and ORA patterns are found assuming that in the file there are line which has only ORA patterns also. How do I modify the same for that. The file is as follows.

Here's an AWK solution.

Code:

awk -F '\n' '/Errors/{for(i=1;i<=NF;i++){
                if ($i~/^ORA/) {
                        print rt$0;rt=RT;next}
                }}{rt=RT}' RS='(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)' 'file'

explanation:
Code:

RS='(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)'
uses mon-sun as a record separator.
Code:

-F '\n'
Makes '\n' the field separator (each line is a field)
Code:

/Errors/{...}
checks if the term "Errors" is in the record (the block between each Mon-Sun found) If it's found it runs the code.
Code:

{for(i=1;i<=NF;i++){
                if ($i~/^ORA/) {
                        print rt$0;rt=RT;next}

loops from 1 to NF (number of fields). Basically it's scanning all fields, checks if the field starts with ORA. if it does it prints the the whole record and goes to the "next" one.
Code:

rt=RT
I did this because RT= record terminator, so it would give me the name that matched the end of the record, not the start. So I just copy the RT to rt as i scan, and insert rt (the one from the previous record) before my printout.

I hope it makes sense enough for you to figure out.

PS:
You can add something like
Code:

ORS='-------------\n'
if it'll help you with readability of the output.
here's the output using your second sample as a source:
Code:

awk -F '\n' '/Errors/{for(i=1;i<=NF;i++){
                if ($i~/^ORA/) {
                        print rt$0;rt=RT;next}
                }}{rt=RT}' RS='(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)' ORS='-------------\n' 'file'

Edit: Didn't realize that the line immediately after Error starts with ORA. Anyways, here's a non 2am 1/2 asleep version
Code:

awk -F'\n' '{for (i=1;i<=NF;i++)
    if ($i~/^Error/&&$(i+1)~/^ORA/) {print rt$0;break}}
    {rt=RT}' RS='(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)' 'file'

[quote=sagarbsa;2912509]Thanks JSCHIWAL. But I could not understand the program can u help me out with it?
Code:

$ sed -r '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/i\                    # Matches lines starting with a date, and inserts a blank line before it.  This makes selecting a range easier.
' junk | sed -rn '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/,/^$/{        # Selects a single section at a time.  Inside a bracket, you can have pattern tests for lines in between.
                                                      /^$/!H  # If this isn't a blank line (end of the range), then add this line to the Hold buffer.
                                                    /^$/{      # At the end of the pattern, so check if the patter 'ORA' exists.  If so, yank back the Hold buffer and print it out.
                                                          x    # exchange the current working buffer (blank) with the Hold buffer.  This both recalls the lines from the hold buffer and clears the hold buffer.
                                                          /ORA/p  # print out the lines.
                                                        }
                                                    }'

I don't see any lines in the sample set that contain an error.
Since we used the "H" command, the working register contains multiple lines, so the pattern
from both lines of input are present and can be tested for.
Code:

echo >>junk
$ sed -r '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/i\
' junk | sed -rn '/(Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat|Sun)/,/^$/{
                                                      /^$/!H
                                                      /^$/{
                                                          x
                                                          /Error.*\nORA/p
                                                          }
                                                      }'

this does it...

Code:

#!/usr/bin/perl


while (<ARGV>) {
    if (/Errors in file/) {
        print;
        while (<ARGV>) {
            last unless /^ORA-/;
            print;
        }
    }
}

Thanks a lot Dudes. Now the program is working fine. But Wanted to know what does "/^$/" and "x" implies.

/^$/ is the pattern that matches an empty line.
"x" exchanges the Hold buffer with pattern space. The pattern space is where lines are read into.

Thanks JSCHIWAL. The program is done now. Can you suggest some good awk and sed tutorial.

angrybanana 10-08-2007 01:02 PM

Here's some good ones.

sed = http://sed.sf.net/sedfaq.html | http://xrl.us/sedintro#uh-0 | http://xrl.us/sedstd | http://www.gnu.org/software/sed/manual/

awk = http://www.gnu.org/software/gawk/manual/ | http://catonmat.net/download/awk.cheat.sheet.txt

Hii

I tried to run the above program inHP-UX in ksh. When I tried to run the awk program given above it gave the following Error.

awk: Input line Mon Jul 16 20:28:01 cannot be longer than 3,000 bytes.
The source line number is 4.

And for the sed program above I got the error stating
sed: illegal option -- r
sed: illegal option -- r
any solutions

Probably a different ver. of "awk".

On my box (SimplyMEPIS 6.0):
Code:

$ awk --version
GNU Awk 3.1.5

I.e. my awk is actually gawk.
It is likely that HP-UX is running something like nawk.
Why don't you can check the ver. on both machines & post back, please?
