convert script to ksh93 (version 93 )

hello,

 

i want to convert a script to ksh93 ( korn shell version 93 ) .

 

Ksh93: https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=Ksh93

 

i want to replace following warning(s) like :

 

warning: line 1: `...` obsolete, use $(...)


following options i find in scripts, but some option's aren't possible to handle (for me)
like "var6" variante 6  in attachment. also "var4" is not ok. 

 

has anybody an idea ?

here are some options, what can be listed in a script KSH88

1. replace :  =`
    by          :  =$(

2. replace :  `$
    by          :  )

3. replace :  `character
    by           :  $(

4. replace :   character`
   by             : character )

5. replace :  ?`
    by          :  ? )

6. replace :  "`
     by         :  " )

7. replace :  }`
     by        :  } )

 

here is my "sed" converter :

file="demo.sh"

sed -e "s|=\`|=$\(|g" \
    -e "s|\`$|\)|g" \
    -e "s|\`\([a-z]\)|\$( \1|g" \
    -e "s|\([a-z\?\"\?]\)\`|\1 \)|g" ${file}  > ${file}.ksh93



ksh -n ${file}.ksh93

 

testing : sed of attachment and test syntax of new file with version 93 : ksh -n

 

kind regards

You should have done this as soon as you abandoned the Bourne and scummy C shell decades ago.

I started doing that as soon as I read "archaic" under Command Substitution.

(I  typically did it manually.)

 

sed -e "s|=\`|=$\(|g" \
    -e "s|\`$|\)|g" \
    -e "s|\`\([a-z]\)|\$( \1|g" \
    -e "s|\([a-z\?\"\?]\)\`|\1 \)|g" ${file}  > ${file}.ksh93

 

You can do this a little easier without all that quoting if you put it in single quotes:

sed -e 's|=`|=$(|g'   -e 's|`$|)|g'  -e 's|`\([a-z]\)|$( \1|g'  -e 's|\([a-z?"]\)`|\1 )|g'

 

(You don't need to quote the "?", nor have two of them.)

Re: convert script to ksh93 (version 93)

hello,

 

thx to your answers.

 

@ Steven

 

   

sed -e 's/`\([^`]*\)`/$(\1)/g'

 

this handle 90 % of my script(s).

 

That won't help if the two "`" characters are on different lines, as in:

     if [ `echo "var6" |grep "var6"  > /dev/null 2> /dev/null; \
            echo $?` -eq 0 ]

 

with the other "sed" options i can handle it ?  like :

 

sed -e 's/`\([^`]*\)`/$(\1)/g' -e 's|\([?]\)`|\1)|g'  -e 's| `\([a-z]\)| $(\1|g' -e 's|=`|=$(|g' -e 's|`$|)|g'

 

@ Dennis

 

in some scripts are statements  ( here it is a example of a "case" statement  ) like

var7=` echo "a b c" | \
       awk ' { print $1 } '`  ;;

 

 

so i want to "devaluate" the of sed

sed -e 's|\([?']\)`|\1)|g' demo_ksh88.sh

 

like :


sed -e 's|\([?\']\)`|\1)|g' demo_ksh88.sh

 

>

 

but i can't  devaluate in a class

(This is called quoting in a shell.)

>sed -e 's|\([?']\)`|\1)|g' demo_ksh88.sh

You can stutter quotes: 'don'\''t'  (that's two single quotes, not double quote.
sed -e 's|\([?'\'']\)`|\1)|g' demo_ksh88.sh

Re: convert script to ksh93 (version 93)

@ Dennis : Thank you for your correction, now it works.

 

@ Dennis , Steven : With your input's i have a final solution :

 

sed -e 's/`\([^`]*\)`/$(\1)/g' -e 's|\([?'\''"]\)`|\1)|g' -e 's| `\([a-z]\)| $(\1|g' -e 's|=`|=$(|g' -e 's|`$|)|g'

 

this handle 95 % of ksh 88 script(s). the rest you have to correct manually.
