ksh – read: no query process
I started to write a shell script in ksh (korn shell) on SunOS version.
I added the below line to prompt and get user input.
read -p "Enter the option:" input_variable
But while executing I am getting the below error and script failed. I already used this type of read command Linux but not working in SunOS. Please provide how to run this read command in SunOS?
./script.ksh: read: no query process
Thanks in advance.
In Korn Shell, read -p command may not work as usual.
Try below command in KSH to do the same action:
echo "Enter the option:\c" read input_variable
