shell script: read in values from text file24 Aug 2009
before i forget how to do this again assuming test.txt contains a number on each line, ie.
123 324 45656
heres a couple of simple ways to read from the file and so stuff in a shell script
#!/bin/bash INFILE=test.txt OUTFILE=out.xml for i in $(cat $INFILE) ; do #do some stuff echo item: $i done
while read line do echo $line; done < $INFILE (echo "</oai_dc:dc>" >> $OUTFILE )
