I'm writing a ksh script and having a problem in setting up field
seperators whenever reading from strings / files. (I'm using SunOS5.5.1)
I'm performing a grep -w on an input file, and assuming a -w : word is
defined as anything being delimited by the IFS shell variable, I need it
to be able to handle a comma seperator as well as the original space,
new line and tab.
Does anyone know the correct syntax for setting up the IFS Shell
And do I need to have root priviledges to set it up ?
Also, I'd be interested to know how to do the equivalent in csh.
Thanks in advance.
