After your previous post at Today 12:39 that said it was in tmp I changed that line to point to the location of CamImg.tmp2.jpg which is the image file that the data is applied to.

When I run parliament-test.sh the file is no longer created in the /tmp folder

I have an interim solution. I copied the witem program that @MadeInGermany wrote which I am using to get all the data over to a new file. In that file I changed it to read the 5th line after "Wind" which is the value of "Wind Chill".

the weather-data.txt file is like this
Code:
 Condition:
          Clear

   Pressure:
          103.3 kPa

   Tendency:
          Rising

   Temperature:
          -3.9C

   Dew point:
          -7.2C

   Humidity:
          78%

   Wind:
          WNW 5 km/h

   [36]Wind Chill:
          -6

   Visibility:
          24 km

   Clear

   -4C

   Condition:
          Clear

   Pressure:
          103.3 kPa

   Tendency:
          Rising

   Temperature:
          -3.9C

   Dew point:
          -7.2C
The new file I created is like this

Code:
#!/bin/bash
while read line
do
 line=${line%$'\r'} # Remove a WinDOS CR
 case $line in ( "$1:" )
   read line2
   read line3
   read line4
   read line5
   line5=${line5%$'\r'}
   echo "$line5"
   break # Stop at first match
 esac
done < weather-data.txt
I also added an if statement to change windchill = $temp if windchill is greater than zero because when there is no windchill it will pick up the visibility value I think.


I would like to thank everyone that helped me on this and were patient with an 73 year old fart.
