How to swlist a product with specific os_release ?

[ Edited ]

Hi admins:

I have a depot (say /DEPOT/HP/products) that contains products for HP10.20, HP11 and HP11i. Now I'd like to swlist ONLY products belonging to a specific OS release, eg. all products that have the os_release attribute set to B.11.11.

After having looked at swlist(1M) manpage, I can only retrieve attribute os_release, without testing it.

If I find pattern like os_release = B.11.11, this is perfect. But when I have something like os_release=?.11.*, I cannot test it, as this is not a regexp (the question mark alone does not have the same meaning as 'dot', as interpreted by grep).

So if in a script I want to test B.11.11 against pattern ?.11.*, I don't know how to do it (echo "B.11.11" | grep "?.11.*" fails).

I could test architecture flag, but there are products delivered for B.11.00 that works for B.11.11: some products on 11i application CDs are bundled this way.

If someone could shed a light on this...

Thank you!

/Brian

Something like this?

swlist -l product|grep [ABC]\.11\.[01][01]|more

Hi Brian,

Search for A-Z or a "?", e.g.

swlist -a os_release | grep [A-Z?].11.*
