Comment 2 Alexander Tsoy 2015-09-25 09:26:13 UTC
What's the point of running read twice?

    while read -r line
        # tokenize the data
        read -r uri uuid <<<"${line}"
        ... snip ...
    done <"${somefile}"

Why not just

    while read -r uri uuid
        ... snip ...
    done <"${somefile}"
