bin sh script - "(" unexpected

Asked by At

What is wrong with this script?


for file in *.p; do awk -f get_p.awk "$file" > "$file"er; done 

awk -f phase-comp.awk file1 file.per # výpočet fází
paste <(awk '{print $1}' output1) <(awk '{print $2}' file1) > out

The error is:

5: skript: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

When I write command separately to terminal. It works well. Thank you
