Hi Guys,
i am facing issue with Unix commands

I created a small shell script to reproduce this issue.

echo FCP_USERNAME="TEST.MESSAGE"  | sed 's/FCP_USERNAME=//g' > tmp
cat tmp | read abc
echo value is $abc

Now we are working on Oracle upgrade project and the Unix Box used for the older version was a HP UX and the new Unix Box is based on Linux. I am not aware about these OS technicalities.

So when the above shell script is encapsulated in a file named test.sh and i run the command as

sh test.sh

The result on the HP UX based Unix is


while on the new Unix box it is

value is

The value is not displayed at all. the READ command does not work in this new Unix Box. On further search i gave the command

man read

and it did not throw any results which i think means that READ command is not available in this version. right ?

In that case what is the workaround to reach the value to a variable/file echoed by the ECHO command ??

Please, note that this is Oracle forum.

Your question, although remotely regards Oracle, is - in its core - operating system related. Perhaps you should search for the answer on one of Unix (or Linux) forums.
