Hi there. I am trying to write a little script to get the information about big files saved in home users directories. I have just find the list of directories I need to explore using a little script with cat, but I would like to use the cat output and then explore each one of the directories looking for specific kind of files, the thing is I would like to store the cat output in a variable and then use something with for to do the search in every directory. Someone can give me a clue about how to use the cat output in a variable? The cat output has several directories ... it is something like \test\somefiles \test2\anotherone \test3\mixed \notest\resting I would like to have this output in an array but I don't know how to send it to an array. Any help will be really appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.
