bash – read command results into an array


read -a ARRAY <<< $(df -h /data | grep -w /data)
OR
read -d DELIMITER -a ARRAY <<< $(df -h /data | grep -w /data)
THIS DOES NOT WORK FOR ME
OR
OIFS=$IFS;IFS=$'\|';read -a ARRAY <<< "$STRING2PROCESS";IFS=$OIFS
# for delimiter '|'

OR BETTER (!)

ARRAY=($(df -h /data | grep -w /data))

HINT —>
OIFS=$IFS;IFS=$’\|’;read -a ARRAY <<< “$(echo $STRING2PROCESS)”;IFS=$OIFS
failed

Does not work in sh and ksh on OpenBSD
