jcs:grep Template

 

XSLT Syntax

SLAX Syntax

Description

Search the given input file for all instances matching the specified regular expression and write the matching strings and corresponding lines to the result tree. The pattern is matched to each line of the file. The template does not support matching a pattern spanning multiple lines.

Note

The jcs:grep template supports a maximum input file size of 9.5MB. If an input file exceeds this maximum, the script generates an error regarding xmlSAX2Characters: huge text node and Extra content at the end of the document.

If the regular expression contains a syntax error, the template generates an error for every line of the file. For each match, the template adds a <match> element, which contains <input> and <output> child tags, to the result tree. The template writes the matching string to the <output> element and writes the corresponding matching line to the <input> element.

Starting in Junos OS Release 11.1, if an absolute path is not specified for the input file, the default path is relative to the user’s home directory for op scripts, and it is relative to the /var/tmp/ directory for commit scripts and for event scripts that are enabled at the [edit event-options event-script] hierarchy level. For event scripts that are enabled at the [edit system scripts] hierarchy level, the default path is relative to the top-level directory, /.

Parameters
