Project Description

I need a script to manipulate text from my command line. I am on a Mac so the script has to be in bash.

usage: [url removed, login to view] contentfile masterfile column

your script will open the contentfile (in my example: [url removed, login to view]) strip it from LF and CR and will then insert (overwrite if anything should be there) the content of the columns in line 1 to the masterfile, as lines in the specified column.

Yes, I know…I am not that good at explaining ;-) So here is an example…

Input in terminal: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] 1

Explaination: script, inputfile, outputfile, column to write in

Should produce a file like [url removed, login to view]

File delimiter is and should always be ";" and encoding is UTF8.

If you understood what i mean…you´re good!! :-)

If not, feel free to ask…

Thank you for your efforts!
