General :: Command Line - Count Number Of Folders In A Drive Using System?

Apr 9, 2010

I need to organise an external HDD such that there is no more than 500 folders on it.

Ubuntu's "Properties" pane shows only the file count, not the folder count.

Is there a simple CLI line that will tell me the number of subdirectories?

Programming :: Count The Number Of Slashes In Each Line?

Jan 18, 2010

I have a file with lines that look like this:

Dev/7_Texas2004/4_Caves/page.htm
Dev/7_Texas2004/5_SanMarcos/page.htm
Dev/7_Texas2004/6_Austin/page.htm

And I'm trying to count the number of slashes in each line. I figured (with my limited knowledge of bash) that the best thing to use would be sed. So I ran this to print "not /": sed '!s////g' file # and eventually adding " | wc -m" to it. and I got the same result as if I ran cat, no modification at all:

General :: Grep Command - Show The Files But Not The Line Count

Oct 31, 2010

This has to also show the line count. I can get it to show the files but not the line count. What is the single command used to identify only the matching count of all lines within files under the /etc directory that contain the word ‚ÄěHOST? List only the files with matches and suppress any error messages.

Software :: Audit Tool In System To Count Number Of Times It Run?

Dec 30, 2009

I'm the POC for all my families Linux computers. Is it possible to get statistics on which programs are accessed, how frequently, for how long and by which user?

When it comes time to upgrade it would be useful so I know which programs to concentrate my testing. I usually just e-mail and ask but every time people forget to send me the programs they actually use.

Programming :: Count Number Of CD-ROMs On A System Using Shell Script

Apr 7, 2010

I am trying to get the count of number of CD-ROMs attached with my Linux system using a bash shell script. I have decided to use the following method for it:

Code:
debian:~# cat /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info | grep "drive name:"
drive name: sr0 hdb

So basically I know that there are two CD-ROMs attached to the system. Now there can be three also like this:

Code:
debian:~# cat /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info | grep "drive name:"
drive name: sr0 sr1 hdb

All I want to do is in my shell script to get the count of the devices in a variable using the above command.

General :: Sed - Csv Averages On Command Line - Take The Average Of All Rows With The Same 1st Number(key)

Jul 20, 2010

I have a big file full of records like this

1, 2, 4, 5, 6
1, 3, 5, 6, 3
1, 4, 5, 6, 6
2, 4, 5, 5, 5
2, 3, 4, 5, 2

anyway i need to take the average of all rows with the same 1st number(key). i.e.

1, 3, 4.66, 5.66, 5
2, 3.5, 4.5, 5, 3.5

I know this is something awk/sed would be great for, i just dont have enough experience with them to accomplish it, Also, what about averaging those columns together? so, after I output this to a file, id like to get another like:

1, 4.58
1, 4.125

The number of colums to add might not always be 4 either. EDIT: this might be easier to do in gnuplot, so I mainly just need an answer to the first part.

General :: Osx - How Does Mac's Command Line Compare To System

Aug 23, 2010

I love Ubuntu Linux - especially the commmand line. But I have to admit that, at least for now, Windows is more user-friendly - there's more software for it, more drivers, and more stuff just works.

Knowing that Mac is built on Unix makes me wonder if it's the sweet spot between them. But I wonder: how similar is the Mac command line to Linux's bash? Could I pick right up with using vim and bash scripting and git, etc? Would common commands like changing directories be different? Does anybody know an online "compare and contrast" resource?

General :: Splitting Text File Into Several Parts By Line Count

Sep 21, 2009

I have a utility that works with files. The utility is crashing at after about 120 files. The input to the utility is a file containing a filelist. I want to cut the file with the file names in it to seperate files containing about one hundred or so. My thought was to determine the number of lines/100 and then use head and delete to create temporary files to run the utility multiple times to prevent the crash. When I tried to create a variable using the wc -l command the output gives me the number of total lines but it also includes the filename of the input file. (873 Filename.txt) I can not figure out how to remove the Filename.txt from the variable.
