Quick point that could cause some problems...REM is NOT rm in unix! Try # instead or you could end up with an interesting shell script ;)

Cheers,

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
-------snip-------

Thanks for your help.

Sam
