To take advantage of eval effectively, make sure that the unexpanded variable is gifted for project utilizing eval "$var=\$value". If important, mix a number of components into one variable earlier than utilizing eval: string1=something string2='rm -rf *' ## we don't wish this to be accomplished eval "$var=\"Example=$string1\" $string2" ## WRONG!! documents long gone! combo="Example=$string1 $string2" eval "$var=\$combo" ## correct! the worth of the variable whose identify is in var is now just like the contents of mixture, if var used to be set to xx: $ printf "%s\n" "$xx" Example=something rm -rf * one zero five CHAPTER nine „ RESERVED phrases AND BUILTIN instructions atmosphere a number of Variables from One Command i've got noticeable many scripts during which a number of variables are set to elements of the date and time utilizing this (or anything similar): year=$(date +%Y) month=$(date +%m) day=$(date +%d) hour=$(date +%H) minute=$(date +%M) second=$(date +%S) this is often inefficient since it calls the date command six occasions. it could actually additionally supply the incorrect effects. What occurs if the script is termed a fragment of a moment ahead of nighttime and the date adjustments among environment the month and day? The script was once referred to as at 2009-05-31T23:59:59 (this is the ISO average structure for date and time), however the values assigned may well quantity to 2009-05-01T00:00:00. The date that used to be sought after was once 31 may possibly 2009 23:59:59 or 01 June 2009 00:00:00; what the script acquired used to be 1 might 2009 00:00:00. That’s a complete month off! a greater strategy is to get a unmarried string from date and break up it into its components: date=$(date +%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S) time=${date#*T} date=${date%T*} year=${date%%-*} daymonth=${date#*-} month=${daymonth%-*} day=${daymonth#*-} hour=${time%%:*} minsec=${time#*-} minute=${minsec%-*} second=${minsec#*-} larger nonetheless, use eval: $ eval "$(date "+year=%Y month=%m day=%d hour=%H minute=%M second=%S")" The output of the date command is finished via eval: year=2009 month=05 day=31 hour=23 minute=59 second=59 The final tools use just one name to this point, so the variables are all populated utilizing a similar timestamp. They either take in regards to the related period of time, that's a fragment of the time of a number of calls to this point. The clincher is that the eval process is set one 3rd so long as the string-splitting procedure. kind, show information regarding instructions many of us use which to determine the particular command that may be used whilst one is achieved. There are issues of that. 106 CHAPTER nine „ RESERVED phrases AND BUILTIN instructions First is that there are at the very least types of which, certainly one of that's a csh script that doesn’t paintings good in a Bourne-type shell (thankfully, this model is changing into very rare). the second one challenge is that that is an exterior command, and it can't be aware of precisely what the shell will do with any given command. All it does is seek the directories within the course variable for an executable with a similar identify. $ which echo printf /bin/echo /usr/bin/printf you recognize that either echo and printf are builtin instructions, yet which doesn’t understand that. rather than which, use the shell builtin style: $ kind echo printf sa echo is a shell builtin printf is a shell builtin sa is a functionality sa () { pre=: post=:; printf "$pre%s$post\n" "$@" } whilst there’s a couple of attainable command that will be finished for a given identify, they could all be proven through the use of the -a alternative: $ variety -a echo printf echo is a shell builtin echo is /bin/echo printf is a shell builtin printf is /usr/bin/printf The -p choice limits the hunt to documents and doesn't supply any information regarding builtins, capabilities, or aliases.
