To generate read an audit file


Hi all,
I am a newbie to shell scripting, and i have to write a shell program for following senario:

-:take a .aud file from a given directory and run the following command audengine -aud account_name filter_1 filter_2 aud_file.aud

-: this command will generate a .log file
-: now i have to grep the account number(say x) and say 10 lines above and below it from this log file and pass it into another file in .txt format in some other directory

That's nice. Good luck to you.



Oh, wait, did you want some help or advice? Well why didn't you say so? Just where are you having problems?

In the meantime, here's a good introduction to bash. Perhaps it will be of some help.

When you have specific questions, we'll be glad to help you. But please do what you can first.

You should start by breaking it down into separate actions and figure out how to do each step individually first.

If you want to grab the preceding and following 10 lines, try grep using the -A & -B flags http://linux.die.net/man/1/grep
