General :: Find Folders With ONLY One Specific File In And Delete File And Folde
Oct 21, 2009
Many folders within a subdirectory some of which have lots of data in and some of which have only one specific file called produkt.fil inside.I need a command to find and delete those folders that contain ONLY the file produkt.fil - if other files exist (doesnt matter what they are) then they should be left alone. Note: produkt.fil exists in all of the folders always.
Many years ago, I converted a portion of my files to an arbitrary format with a specific extension. i no longer desire to have them in this format and i would like begin the process of replacing them because conversion is not an appropriate solution. unfortunately, they are mixed in separate folders of the same root folder with files in my current format of a different extension. I feel it would make this process easier if I were to move every folder that contained a file with the undesired format to a separate root folder. The files are stored on a Linux server and shared via samba. How can I do this with a couple of commands or a script? I am open to other suggestions as well. I want to avoid time spent editing text files. Ultimately, I'd like a command that produced a list of full paths for folders, sorted by the number of levels would be a nice touch. A list of all of the files is clearly not what I'm looking for.
I'm using bash under Ubuntu.Currently this works well for the current directory:catdoc *.doc | grep "specificword" But I have lots of subdirectories with .doc files.How can I search for, let's say, "specificword" recursively?
I have the tar file of glibc-2.12.1, but now I want to edit the SPEC file. I can't find it. For those that want a "why", I'm trying to make it smaller. So simply, where is the SPEC file for glibc? (rpmbuild cannot find it in the *.tar.gz file).
Currently I am doing a java project and I renamed some file/folders to start with '.'. i.e. ".project", ".classpath", ".settings/"
I can see them on my desktop but i cannot delete them. In the terminal, "ls" command does not show these files exist. "rm" will also say cannot find these files. How do I get rid of these files/folders?
On my RHEL5 system one of my key file in one specific directory gets deleted when I start my application suite (having multiple processes). Is there some way to narrow down which specific process is deleting this file?
When I ls -l /etc/passwd, -rw-r--r-- 1 root root /etc/passwd When I login as myself, and rm /etc/passwd, it asks: rm: remove write-protected file '/etc/passwd'? If I say yes, will it actually delete the passwd file?
I have a bunch of text files, all of them have a .txt extension. They are all located in subfolders of the /MyTextFiles folder (but could be anywhere, no idea what depth). If any line in any of the text files has the word "hello" I want to delete that entire line. I know sed and awk are made for this problem but I can't seem to get the syntax correct.
I recently moved to a new machine, and I copied my entire home folder across. This included lots of hidden (starting with '.') folders, and in many cases they are config folders for packages which I have not installed on the new machine. They are taking up space, so I would like to delete them, but to go through manually and figure out which ones I need would be very laborious. Is there a way to find, and perhaps delete, config folders for packages that are not installed?
I want to be able to check the contents of a text file for a specific string and remove it from the file from the command prompt. I would basically be searching through a number of files and if a specific string is found I would like it removed automatically. pretty much a find and replace, were the replace is nothing. any one got any ideas on how you would do this. I already have the search part sorted just need to be able to remove the string I don't want from the multiple files.
I am developing a Web-based application and have some folders that will generally reside outside of the Web accessible area of the server. However, since some people will not be able to store those folders outside of the "public_html" folder, I am looking to put a blank "index.php" inside of every folder within that section of the application. To make things easier, I would like to know if there might be a way to recursively copy one file into every folder in a certain location.
In other words, is there a command that might do something like: Code: > cp -R index.php /home/user/public_html/source-files/* Basically, I want every directory inside of "source-files" to get a copy of "index.php". The directory hierarchy within "source-files" can go at least three or four levels deep, so the command would need to be recursive. I am looking for a command-line statement that I can type to perform this action.
we assume that we have 2 folders with the name 1 and 2 . The folder 2 is inside 1 . Also, in folder 2 we have file with name "file.txt". And we are in folder 1 . How can we delete the file.txt in one command line ? I mean without using the code below:
Is it possible to write ksh script in the spec file? The target is after I perform rpm -i my_rpm.rpm According to the spec file, ksh script will do some installation & configuration. For example run other script and edit some files.
I need to copy a file into a Flash memory which is connected to my computer via USB. The file must start at a specific sector. Can anyone guide me how to do this? (it can be through a C program, a line command, or any other way)
