Hi folks,

I'm prepared to write a simple perl scripts as follow

There are 25 commands executed in following sequence

export LFS=/mnt/lfs
mount /dev/hda6 /mnt/lfs
mkdir -p $LFS
echo $LFS
/mnt/lfs (output)
/usr/sbin/chroot "$LFS" /tools/bin/env -i HOME=/root TERM="$TERM" PS1='\u:\w\$ '     PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/tools/bin /tools/bin/bash --login +h
mknod -m 600 /dev/console c 5 1
mknod -m 666 /dev/null c 1 3
mount -n -t tmpfs none /dev
mknod -m 622 /dev/console c 5 1
mknod -m 666 /dev/null c 1 3
mknod -m 666 /dev/zero c 1 5
mknod -m 666 /dev/ptmx c 5 2
mknod -m 666 /dev/tty c 5 0
mknod -m 444 /dev/random c 1 8
mknod -m 444 /dev/urandom c 1 9
chown root:tty /dev/{console,ptmx,tty}
ln -s /proc/self/fd /dev/fd
ln -s /proc/self/fd/0 /dev/stdin
ln -s /proc/self/fd/1 /dev/stdout
ln -s /proc/self/fd/2 /dev/stderr
ln -s /proc/kcore /dev/core
mkdir /dev/pts
mkdir /dev/shm
mount -t devpts -o gid=4,mode=620 none /dev/pts
mount -t tmpfs none /dev/shm

In normal circumstance there is no output on all commands except command-4 with "/mnt/lfs" as output. If not considering the output it will be quite simple just listing all commands on a shell script. Now I expect to arrange the script as follows;

1) The script will automatically continue to execute command-5 if the output of command-4 is "/mnt/lfs" otherwise exit the shell.
2) If there is an output on any command it needs to confirm "yes/no" with the corresponding command displayed on the terminal. 'yes" will continue on next command. "no" will exit the shell stopping the script.

I'm considering whether shell script or perl script will do the job better. If perl script then how to start. Which module/modules will be more appropriate, TIA


I am trying to list out a bus as individual names.

For instance - When I come across a section in a file that lists a bus like this:

[0:2] <busname>

I would like to print out this:


Any ideas in PERL or UNIX would be appreciated.
