i've just given a script to update and maintain by my manager, but its bash and i dont know that much about it..
i currently have a script that looks through .txt files for given serials that then reports to a php webpage.
within this script we have around 20 variables 1 for each testset labelled ts1 - ts20
most the testsets have a standard 7 digit serial that we look for and this is what is assigned to each variable..eg
however i have one testset that has a unique serial because of the tests it carries out.
i have tried
but no matter what i do it wont read it even though the testsheets read this serial.
is there somthing i am doing wrong with the variable? i thought encapsulating it would allow the / to be read properly
