I urgently need help with an assignment I must complete by tomorrow. I started Bash Scripting yesterday so am a complete newbie. I don't have time to teach myself Bash scripting so please don't redirect me to some tutorials.
The assignment I have to do involves the following:
the aim is to classify cars into 4 separate files and print a summary report.
I must create a file with records:
ID Number, car, cost, number in stock
0001, ford focus, 5000, 44
0002, ford fiesta, 8000, 22
0003, bmw 320, 12000, 13
0004, vw golf, 30000, 2
0005, honda civic, 7000, 18
0006, bmw 318, 2000, 6
0007, vw passat, 18000, 8
I have created this file and called it csv1 for arguments sake.
This is in a directory called $HOME/Cars
I then need to create a script with functions if necessary to split the cars into categories. I then need to determine the category and write 3 records to the appropriate file. the files will need to be created in my program and their names will be:
honda, bmw, vw, ford
these will be stored in my $HOME/Cars directory.
the summary report must display on the screen and contain the info:
- names of the created files and their pathnames
- total number of cars
- total value of cars
Even if i don't get this perfectly right it's ok i need to create something which will be enough to pass the assignment so coding examples would be good to show that i have an understanding of what im doing!!!????:'(:'(:'(
PLS PLS PLS can someone help. I have 24 hours from now and the clock is ticking.
finally i am not allowed to use sed or awk for this - even though i don't have an idea what they are.....
many thanks in advance........
