[SLUG] sh scripting help
Got a problem writing a shell script in sh. What it's supposed to
do is look at a base path, get a directory listing and for each directory
there it needs to concat the base path with the dir name and run a cat *
|grep "sometext" on each.
I can get a directory listing by doing a ls -l |cut -b 47-57 and that gives
a list of directories but I cannot get either the path concatination
working or the "do for each" bit working.
Are there any sh guru's out there who could point me in the right direction
code wise? (nb it has to be /bin/sh as it's the only shell the system uses.
otherwise I'd write a little perl script that could do this with ease).
