Re: OT - BASH question?

Does anyone know of a GOOD bash list? If yes - I'll go there.

The following works:
   while read line; do
   ...
   ...
   done < somefile
   ...
   ...

How would one go about doing something similar replacing the file redirection with the output of a command? Before you say pipe it, that doesn't work because the pipe starts a subprocess and anything done inside the while loop is lost to the rest of the original process.

i.e.
   ps -eo "%p" | while read line; do
   ... # anything done here is
   ... # lost to the original process
   done
   ... # Code here can't use anything
   ... # done inside the while loop

Suggestions?


ps -eo "%p" | awk ' { print $1 > "proctest" }'



-- good luck
