I’m trying to configure a file with a bash script. And the variables in the bash script are not written in file as it is written in script.
#!/bin/bash printf "%s" "template("$DATE\t$HOST\t$PRIORITY\t$MSG\n")" >> /file.txt exit 0
This results to template(‘tttn’) instead of template(“$DATE\t$HOST\t$PRIORITY\t$MSG\n in file.
How do I write in the script so that the result is template(“$DATE\t$HOST\t$PRIORITY\t$MSG\n in the configured file?
Is it possible to write variable as it looks in script to file?
Enclose the strings you want to write within single quotes to avoid variable replacement.
