sqlplus and end-of-line problem in shell script code
Fri Sep 29 08:26:00 GMT 2006
I want to use our shell script collection which includes sqlplus calls
I have the following problem with this code snippet:
RESULT=`sqlplus -s myuser/mypasswd@MYDB <<EOF
SET FEEDBACK OFF;
SET PAGESIZE 0;
SELECT '42' FROM DUAL;
if test "$RESULT" = "42" ; then
echo "Result is 42..."
echo "Result is not 42 ??!"
When I run the script on UNIX it prints "Result is 42..." which is OK.
When I run the script under Cygwin the result is: "Result is not 42??!"
The reason is that under Cygwin the result of the SELECT are 3
characters "42" "CR" "LF" (instead of 2 characters "42" and "LF").
I did not found a way to convince sqlplus to produce UNIX-EOLs on
Windows. Does anyone know how to solve the problem without changing
the code itself ?
