Hello everyone. Am new here have a multi-step question.
I am writing a script to work in ubuntu 12.04 linux that has a bunch of steps. Not a avid scripter, and this is probably (hopefully) easy for everyone else to understand.
I am building an installer that will.
Run another script, and wait for that to finish. This I know how to do.
Then rename a pair of files to blah.war.old
Then run one of the new files through a shasum/sha1sum and use that output to make a directory where then the .war file will get
placed in that newly created folder.
aka $shasum blah.war
mv blah.war /blah/blah/blah/kjfdjfkdjfkdjfdkjfdk
Then there is the trick that that same output from teh shasum will be used to update a database system properties but one step at a time I guess.
So I guess the question is what do I use in the shell script bash to get that output from one command to the next, and maybe to another command down the chain?
