printing current line number
Posted by arvindpal (arvindpal), 28 September 2006How do I puts current line number?
I could find 'info script' to get the script name. I could not find command to get the line number.

will tell you the number of commands you've interpretted, but there's nothing that I know of to tell you the line number. That's quite logical, as proc commands store a procedure and the original file numbering is not retained at that point.
Posted by arvindpal (arvindpal), 29 September 2006Thanks for your reply.
hmm.. In that case how does $LINENO work fine for shell script?
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 29 September 2006Because Shell script is a different language that keeps track of which line it's at. There's a different "balance" between the languages - shell is a scripting tool in which you can define functions, but Tcl is a full procedure based language where named blocks of code that are stored are inherrently much more important.
