Description ron.kyles 1999-06-01 17:08:11 EDT
The following script returns nulls in the read command
arguments; however if you comment out the read command, awk
will print the field variables:


IFS=' '

    echo "1;/usr/tistar/bin/flpnm.asc;Name;Ascending;lp_" |
    awk -F\; '{if(NR == tc) {printf("%s %s %s %s\n", $2, $3,
$4, $5)}}' tc=1 | \
    read file field sortorder value
    echo $file $field $sortorder $value

This is still a problem in pdksh-5.2.14-1.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-02 14:09:59 EDT
The fix won't be in Red Hat 6.1. I'm preserving the bug by changing
the state to REMIND.
