in reply to Checking file for a set of strings

If you want to do this from the command line, you can pair the code down a little bit with in-place editing (borrowing vladb's sample data for comparison):

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; # note: define the required strings with # the input record separator, so no chomp() # required for comparison my @required = ( "set CMP_DATA_INBND_DIR=C:\\h\\csscs\\data\\commi\\tmp_queue$/", "set CMP_DATA_OUTBND_DIR=C:\\h\\CMP\\data\\outbound$/", "set JAVA_HOME=C:\\h\\COTS\\JAVA2\\1.3$/", "set CSSCS_DATA=C:\\h\\csscs\\data$/", ); my %found; @found{@required} = (0) x @required; # setting $^I defines the filename "extension" # to be appended to the backup copy of the # original file and enables in-place editing: $^I = '.bak'; while (<>) { print; $found{$_}++ if defined $found{$_}; if (eof) { for (@required) { next if $found{$_}; print; } } }

$ cat foo.txt set FOO=BAR set CMP_DATA_INBND_DIR=C:\h\csscs\data\commi\tmp_queue set BAR=FOO set CSSCS_DATA=C:\h\csscs\data $ ./foo.pl foo.txt $ cat foo.txt set FOO=BAR set CMP_DATA_INBND_DIR=C:\h\csscs\data\commi\tmp_queue set BAR=FOO set CSSCS_DATA=C:\h\csscs\data set CMP_DATA_OUTBND_DIR=C:\h\CMP\data\outbound set JAVA_HOME=C:\h\COTS\JAVA2\1.3
