General :: 'all Files' Switch For Grep - Including 'hidden'?

Jun 14, 2010

If I type 'grep alias .bashrc' a whole load of stuff comes up. However, if I type 'grep alias *' nothing comes up. Is there some switch for including 'hidden' files - like the -a switch for ls?

May 17, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04

I want to copy all directories, files, and hidden files and hidden directories with one command. I want these items to replace any same items in the target directory.

I have tried several things, such as:

cp -r *
cp -aR *

but I only seem to get visible files and directories. Obviously, I am missing something. (A brain, probably....)

General :: How To Delete Multiple Hidden Files

Mar 17, 2010

I am using ubuntu 8.04 and have a separate home partition. While setting it up I had a few failures and was left with several directories containing many hidden files which I can't seem to delete. The man pages for 'rm' didn't seem to provide the answer either.

Is there a flag or escape sequence that will allow 'rm' to delete these files?

General :: Get Files That Match ALL Patterns (using Grep)?

Jun 9, 2010

I want to traverse a directory and get a list of files that contain a set of patterns. I assumed I could use grep for this, but I having trouble getting grep to only return files that match ALL patterns. Here's what I've come up with so far:

Code:

grep --recursive --file=searchpatterns.txt --files-with-matches somedirectory/*

However, this gives me a list of files that match ANY of the patterns in the searchpatterns.txt file. I want to match ALL of the patterns. I've looked through the man page, but can't find anything that allows me to change the "OR" to "AND" for multiple patterns.

General :: Searching For PHP Files With Find And Grep

Nov 2, 2010

I am looking for all the files that contain the text string 'moo.sql'. I ran the following:

find . -name '*.php' | grep -lir 'moo.sql' *

Unfortunately it seems to return non-php files in addition to php files. I thought the find portion of this would filter the file names so grep would only search php files.

General :: Making Grep Find Files Containing '$'

Dec 5, 2010

I want to find files containing the "$" char (ascii 0x24). 'Grep -irl $ *' would output the names of every file in path *, of course, because it means end of line (EOL). So giving grep the string "$" won't do. So I tried 'grep -irl $ *'. But this doesn't work either and I do not understand why. Am I not escaping the dollar sign? grep should interpret it literally. Neither 'grep -irl "$" *' will work. Fortunately, there's LQ, besides grep's man page.

General :: Awk / Grep Or Sed - Find And Replace Recursively From Files

Feb 12, 2010

I am new to linux as well as awk, grep or sed. I need a find and replace command single liner or script that loops trough input file (file1) and find the particular input in file2 and add "!" in front of the found string.

Example:
input file: file1
g+h=o+p
a+b=c+d
file2 (file that need to look for)
a+b=c+d1e105
x+y=z+s5e105
g+h=o+pabcdefg
t+r=w+qxvyderf

Output file (file3 should look like this)
!a+b=c+d1e105
x+y=z+s5e105
!g+h=o+pabcdefg
t+r=w+qxvyderf

I have tried many awk and sed method of find and replce but it did not work the way I wanted. This is mainly due to my lack of experience in awk and sed. The program should loop trough file1 and find in file2 and output in file3 for the 1st (g+h=o+p) set then repeat the same process again for set 2 (a+b=c+d).

Ubuntu :: After Files Deleted Still Shows Up As Full - Shown In Hidden Trash Files

Mar 9, 2011

I have a Kingston 8gb Datatraveler that has been giving me troubles lately. For some reason after I delete files from it it still shows up as full and the files are shown in the hidden trash files. How do I get rid of these files? I can't delete them as they just show back up. Also, I tried to format the drive with gparted and it won't unmount. When I right click and select information, at the bottom it says: Unable to find mount point. Unable to read the contents of the file system. Because of this, some operations may be unavailable.

Programming :: C++: Not #including Files?

Jun 16, 2010

I'm trying to make my program as small as possible. Currently it's down to 17.8 KB, but I'd like to get it smaller (I know, I'm insane). Is there a way to not use the "#include" directive to include the entire header, but rather to just load only the stuff I need? For example, I just want to include 'sprintf' and 'printf' from stdio.h, not the entire header. Is this possible? Or am I misunderstanding some fundamental element here?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Simple Backup HD Including All Files?

Feb 20, 2010

I am somewhat new to Linux and I am looking for a way to back up my HD with all my Linux files. I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7. The HD has been partitioned so that the computer can run Red Hat Scientific Linux. Using Grub I can dual boot to either Windows 7 or Linux on start up. I want a simple way of backing up the entire contents of my HD (both partitions - everything) - so that in the event of my laptop being damaged I can reconstruct my set up and data as before with all my files and settings in both Windows 7 and Linux intact. Is there a simple program that will enable me to copy everything to an external HD for back up. Can anyone recommend a package that will do this?

Ubuntu Servers :: Backup Including System Files - Boot From Live Cd?

Apr 22, 2010

I am researching how to make an effective backup on Ubuntu Server. This server will have Vsftp, VPN, Samba stuff , many other added packages +many printers, many users + data. I know I can use tar for the data /u no problem. 1. I was testing tar on the /home directory on a few user directories. I then created a new directory and did a restore of the users directories on it. I noticed the /home/user owner and group were root. The files in each directory remained the same. This gave me concern. If I had a crash and had to restore these to a new HD. I would have to change these, what else would I need to change? 2. Since I have many config files, how do I back up them? I know I can do a dump, but then users shouldn't be on the system. The system files will change as they add users, printers, etc, and asking users to not work, is not really an option while dump is running. I thought I could do a tar on whole system. (cron late at night .. not as many users) Then in event of crash of HD.

1. Boot from live cd
2. format the new drive
3. tar back in the whole system

Will this work right? Is there something I am missing?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Find "hidden" Mp3 Files (incomplete Files Or Just Rubbish)

Jan 26, 2010

I've got a collection of MP3 files, but sometimes I stumble across a double file in Rhythmbox. At first, I thought they were the real files, but after trying to fix the tags (artist names were incorrect or missing) in tag editor, I didn't see any change in the files in Rhythmbox.

This made me search for the album in which the files were (in Rhythmbox). I found out that these incorrectly named files were doubles, but they didn't show in the actual folder.

So, I deduced, They had to be fakes. I threw the doubles in the trash bin, and there it was. They were hidden files (with a dot in front).

How can I find all these hidden files, so I can remove them?
