Hi All,

Kindly help me on the below query..

I have written the below script:

echo "Enter the filename:"
read filename
echo -e "Enter the pattern Name: \c"
read pattern
grep $pattern $filename

But when I change the order of the specification in the last line.
eg:- grep $filename $pattern

It is giving error,

Kindly any one tell me the reason....

(I don't speak Unix (any more))

Which error is it?

An obvious solution would be - don't change order of those two parameters.

Besides, how is this question related to Oracle?
