I have a file named input_file which contains some lines. I need to remove certain characters in the line and store them in an array. So to remove the characters, I use the sed command and storing in a variable as below.
all_values=$(sed 's/^[^.]*\. //' < input_file) echo "$all_values"
It is working perfectly fine but I need
all_values to be an array so that
all_values will contain the first line and
all_values the second line and so on.
Since I have a file, I do not know the total array elements before hand. How can I construct an array for my case?
My input file is like below.
This is first element This is second element Though spaces, I should be one element
