[GLLUG] shell script question
Fri, 12 Jul 2002 12:21:03 -0400
I'm trying to wite a bash shell script that will place a configuration
file in each users home directory. I can come up with a list of targets
ls /home | grep drwx | cut -d : -f 2 | cut -d \ -f 2
...which I can direct to a file or whatever. Is there a way to take the
resulting list and assign or use each item sequentially as a variable in
a statement something like...
cp file-i-want /home/$TARGET
...to copy this file to potentially many user directories at one time?
