The learn integrated command returns zero (success) while it has learn a line, yet returns -1 (remember that any non-zero worth exhibits failure) while it encounters the end-of-file marker. If learn didn’t go back a unique worth whilst it had reached the top of the dossier, you are going to by no means go out this loop. The implication of this can be whereas loop can use any command that might go back diversified values in numerous conditions. The try out (or its alias, [) and skim built-ins are the commonest utilities used with it slow loop, yet you should use any command in any respect. The command date | grep 12:15 returns good fortune (return code zero) if the time is 12:15, yet no longer whether it is 12:16. This loop doesn't particularly do whatever at all — I’ve used the sleep command to teach that the physique of the loop is being performed. The output of the date command is proven as a facet impact of the grep command matching the string it searches for. $ whereas date | grep > do > sleep five > performed Tue Dec 28 12:15:48 Tue Dec 28 12:15:53 Tue Dec 28 12:15:58 $ 12:15 GMT 2010 GMT 2010 GMT 2010 with regards to the aptitude to redirect the enter of a loop from a dossier is the potential to redirect all the output of a loop to a dossier instead of all of the person instructions. this may simplify the code fairly dramatically in a sophisticated loop. the subsequent instance simply lists the walls /dev/sda[1-4] to illustrate that the outputs of the echo and ls instructions are all directed to While Loops ❘ 123 the walls. txt dossier. there is not any have to append to the dossier; a unmarried > suffices because the complete loop is one unmarried command, and for that reason one write operation. $ cat while-tofile. sh #! /bin/bash i=1 whereas [ $i -lt five ] do echo “`date` : Partition $i” ls -ld /dev/sda$i sleep 1. five permit i=$i+1 performed > walls. txt $ . /while-tofile. sh $ cat walls. txt Tue Jan four 21:54:48 GMT 2011 : Partition brw-rw---- 1 root disk eight, 1 Jan four 18:39 Tue Jan four 21:54:49 GMT 2011 : Partition brw-rw---- 1 root disk eight, 2 Jan four 18:39 Tue Jan four 21:54:51 GMT 2011 : Partition brw-rw---- 1 root disk eight, three Jan four 21:43 Tue Jan four 21:54:53 GMT 2011 : Partition brw-rw---- 1 root disk eight, four Jan four 18:39 $ 1 /dev/sda1 2 /dev/sda2 three /dev/sda3 four /dev/sda4 while-tofile. sh one other invaluable command is the builtin : command, or the /bin/true command, either one of which continually go back a price of 0, which shows good fortune. this may make a loop execute perpetually. contemplate the next replacement loops, which attempt to determine if a distant host is alive through the ping command. the 1st, just like the date loop proven formerly, runs till the host stops responding.
