Retrieve the result of command in a variable







For specific reason, it is necessary to retrieve the result of a command (or back code) in variable to exploit the script later.

Below are different examples:

Syntax

var = $ (command)   

Note: Please note that the old method using reverse quotes ('command') is however forbidden and the examples presented here are better.


Examples
  • Recovery of standard out
    • stdout only
      • var=$(command)
    • stdout and stderr
      • var=$(command 2>&1)
  • Recovery back code ($?)
    • back code only
      • command
      • var=$?
    • Both
      • var=$ (command)
      • var=$?
