Hello all I try to formatting out put cat command cat /usr/lib/cgi-bin/test00.cgi #!/bin/bash echo "Content-type: text/html" cat /tmp/file results is: one two three four How format output like a bash script (with newline)? one two three four thanks for help! :)
#!/bin/bash echo "Content-type: text/html" echoecho "<html><head><title>Contents of file /tmp/file</title></head><body>"
cat /tmp/file | while read line ; do echo "<p><tt>$line</tt></p>" done echo "</body></html>"So, what I'm doing there is printing the content-type, then the body (you'll have to check that that's proper CGI as it's been ages since I did any of that), then printing a bare-bones HTML file. Note that certain tags are required to make a valid HTML document. Just printing content and claiming it's HTML is *not* valid. What I've done is "cat /tmp/file | while read line ..." which will loop over the lines in /tmp/file and, for each one, assign the contents to $line. I then use that variable as the content in a paragraph (<p/>). I've also marked up the text as "teletype" text which usually means it gets printed in a monospace font. YBMV.
For more information, the CGI specification is RFC 3875 and the HTML specification is https://www.w3.org/TR/html/
