Hi All,

I have created trace file by using below command:-
=================
SQL > alter database backup controlfile to trace;

Does anybody have a script to parse this control file backup?
that is, i need to create a neat script that contains just

STARTUP NOMOUNT
CREATE CONTROLFILE...
...
...
CHARACTER SET JA16SJIS;

Can someone share it with me ??

Regards-
Pokhraj

Just have a look at the file and use your favorite Unix tools: awk, sed, grep, head, tail and so on.
This is no more an Oracle question.

Hi,

Thanx for the solution. Only one confusion:-
do I need to insert the below command at the shell script?

"perl -ne 'print unless ((/^#/) or (/^--/)); exit if (/^;/);' < ctrl.sql"

Forgot to post. I am using Shell script.

Please advice.

Regards-
Pokhraj

If you want. It is not going to change anything.
This is just a perl one-liner.

Just another option:

awk '/^STARTUP/{g=1} g; /^;/{exit}' ctrl.sql | awk NF
