I have been using while loops to read files in line by line when I want
to process things on a line oriented basis. Sometimes i have the set of
lines I want to read through already in a variable, and have to write
them to file before beginning to read line by line.
I was wondering if it is possible to read a variable line by line
somehow with a while loop? Would it possibly be faster than using a file
to read from?
I was thinking something along the lines of the following code might
work, but have not tested it yet.
while read ThisLine; do
# process each line
done < `echo "$Variable"`
Is this something that might work, and would it be more efficient than
writing to, and reading from a file? Is there some other way I've missed
to make it work?
Thanks for any help you can be.
