    Re: shell script

    there is no special command for data base connectivity
    i use informix database with unix
    i write all informix command in a shell
    and if executed with authentication to data base the result is same
    i am able to mix normal scripting command with database command
    i enables me do write database related cron very easily

    Re: shell script

    This expression filters out all the files listed out by the commands 'ls -l' and the removes the files having names containing the DOT (.) character.
    grep is for pattern matching. grep with '-v' takes out only those which don't match that pattern. In the pattern. '\.' refers to the dot character. The other dots refer to any one or more occurance of the said character.
    Pl note that apparently it may lists out the directoies (because directory names have no dot usually), but it is not. You get the same result for '.\.' also.
    Hope you have got the answer.
