Need help in converting this script to a bash script. here is command

script.sh first_file second_file

this script is written to dump first_file until it find a specific line then dumps sceond_file until it ends then continues dumping the first file.


f = open(sys.argv[1], "r")
while True:
line = f.readline()
if not line:
break

print line.replace('\n', '')
if (line.find('<PF_B64EN encoding') != -1):
license_file = open(sys.argv[2], "r")
while True:

Here you go, hope this works for you:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

if [ $# != 2 ]; then
        echo "Usage: script.sh [file1] [file2]"
        exit
fi

if [ ! -f $1 ]; then
        echo "Error: Could not find file '$1'"
        exit
fi

if [ ! -f $2 ]; then
        echo "Error: Could not find file '$2'"
        exit
fi

IFS=$'\n'
for i in $(cat $1); do
        echo $i
        if [[ $i == *"<PF_B64EN encoding"* ]]; then
                for j in $(cat $2); do
                        echo $j
                done
        fi
done
