RE: Converting DOS batch file to UNIX script

Sam: Here you go. One of the main differences is that unix is case sensitive, DOS is not. Also, when you write shell scripts, be sure that their permissions are set so they are
"executable" The man command in unix will provide you with information about the command you have a question about. To find out about the chmod command, man chmod

DOS unix
----- ----
COPY cp
MKDIR mkdir

CD      cd
CD\     cd \
ECHO    echo
REM     #
DIR     ls
DEL     rm

Hello All:

We are a Windows shop developing a software product that runs on an Oracle database. Most of our clients also run Oracle on Windows. Recently, a couple of our new clients have decided to run our database on a UNIX server instead of NT server. I do not know what flavour of UNIX our clients have. I know the slashes go in the other direction in UNIX scripts, but can anybody tell me the UNIX equivalent of COPY, MKDIR, CD, ECHO, and REM?

Here are a few lines of the batch file we use to install our product. Can anybody help me to convert DOS batch file commands to generic UNIX script commands?

-------snip-------
@ECHO OFF
ECHO To run this installation please type (at the CD-ROM prompt)
IF "==%1" GOTO NODRIVE
CD\
MKDIR %1:\DB543
COPY \SERVER\SCRIPTS\Install.bat %1:\DB543\SERVER\SCRIPTS\Install.bat
>NUL:

:NODRIVE
REM this is a remark
call %1:\DB543\SERVER\Scripts\Install.bat parm1 parm2 parm3

sqlplus system/manager_at_db

Thanks for your help.

Sam
