There are four types of quoting: If parameter is unset or null, null is sub- stituted; otherwise, the expansion of word is substituted. If not set, the default editor is ed 1. The -c option causes the commands to be read from the string operand instead of from the standard input. The following four varieties of parameter expansion provide for substring processing. Otherwise, the exit status of the preceding command is used. If parameter is unset or null, the expansion of word is substituted; otherwise, the value of parameter is sub- stituted.
That is, commands can be typed directly to the running shell or can be put into a file, which can be executed directly by the shell. Arithmetic Frwebsd Arithmetic expansion provides a mechanism for evaluating an arithmetic expression and substituting its value.
In an interactive shell, the cd command will print out the name of the directory that it actually switched to if the CDPATH mechanism was used or if directory was. Oth- erwise the shell will return the exit status of the last command exe- cuted, or if the exit builtin is used with a numeric argument, it will return the argument. The option does not work for build targets.
If there are more pieces than variables, the remaining pieces along with the characters in IFS that sepa- rated them are assigned to the last variable. Variables Shell variables can be read and written and contain integer constants.
Want to link to this manual page? Quoting Quoting is used to remove the special meaning of certain characters or words to the shell, such as operators, whitespace, keywords, or alias names.
The shell sets these initially to the values of its command line arguments that follow the name of the shell script. This is normally done automatically by the system when the user first logs in.
In general, redirections open, close, or duplicate an exist- ing reference to a file. When set, these options are also in effect: Each word is viewed as a series of patterns, sep- arated by slashes.
Note that unlike some other shells, sh executes each process in a pipe- line with more than one command in a subshell environment and as a child of the sh process. Shell Patterns A pattern consists of normal characters, which match themselves, and meta-characters. This is used and updated by the shell.
Enclosing the full parameter expansion string in double-quotes does not cause the following four vari- eties of pattern characters to be quoted, whereas quoting characters within the braces has this effect. They are shown in the following list, exactly as they would appear in input typed by the user or in the source of a shell script. This variable overrides the MAIL set- ting. The remaining words are con- sidered the arguments of the command. If a command is terminated by a signal, its exit status is greater than For ordinary commands the output is the path name; for shell built-in commands, shell functions and keywords only the name is written.
The parameter expansion then results in parameterwith the smallest portion of the suffix matched by the pattern deleted.
Word Expansions This clause describes the various expansions that are performed on words. This closes a well-known, and sometimes easily exploitable security hole related to poorly thought out ENV scripts.
The first line displays the current time of day, how long the system has been running, the number of users logged into the system, and the load averages.
If the -P option is specified. Invocation If no arguments are present and if the standard input of the shell is connected to a terminal creebsd if the -i option is setthe shell is con- sidered an interactive shell.
FreeBSD Manual Pages
Complex Commands Complex commands are combinations of simple commands with control opera- tors or keywords, together creating a larger complex command. The editor string is a command name, subject to search via the PATH variable. This will display the manual page for the user command chmod 1. Otherwise, a complex command or some other special construct may have been recognized.
A new process group is created for each pipeline called a job. The kziknjv can set the ENV variable to some file by placing the following line in the file.
The trap command has no effect on signals that were ignored on entry to the shell. As a rule, the system administrator creates src.
