General :: Find Text After String Search In File

Aug 2, 2011

I have a file called Regions.ini that looks like this:

Code:
[Granite]
RegionUUID = 54ab7cd2-0e70-49b7-8020-8dbeb84c08d0
Location = 9991,10007
InternalAddress = 0.0.0.0
InternalPort = 9001
AllowAlternatePorts = False
ExternalHostName = 71.171.21.9

[Syenite]
RegionUUID = 8fc56fdd-0afd-4074-9432-0ae8f42b799f
Location = 9992,10007
InternalAddress = 0.0.0.0
InternalPort = 9000
AllowAlternatePorts = False
ExternalHostName = 71.171.21.9
What I need to do is find out what the IP address is after "ExternalHostName ="

After that I will need to compare that IP to whatismyip and if it's different then replace it but that is easy to do with sed. I just can't figure this simple hurdle out.

General :: Search And Replace String Having Multiple Special Characters

Aug 26, 2009

Below is extract of my file:

What I need is to replace "--destination-path=" with "--destination-path=/home/dest"

i.e. desired output is ----destination-path=/home/dest

I could achieve it with below command

$cat outgoing-xfer|grep destination-path|perl -pi -e "s/destination-path=/destination-path=/home/dest/g"

But the problem is that in this case i just wanted to append "/home/dest" for which I could easily escape "/" with just two "", but I wonder if i have a long path like "/a/b/c/d/e/f/g/h/i/j" I will have to escape so many /. Is there any other way by which I can avoid escaping forward slash.

I tried following:

But receiving follo error

Bareword found where operator expected at -e line 1, near "s/destination-path=/'destination-path=/home"
syntax error at -e line 1, near "s/destination-path=/'destination-path=/home"
Bad name after dest' at -e line 1. tried with enclosing in double quotes as well but in vain

General :: String Replace In Filenames - Files Already Contain The String "Soundtrack"

Jun 11, 2011

Moving right along, I have a folder of MP3 files containing various Movie sound tracks and scores. I'm using Audio Tag Tool to tag all the files at once with an "Artist" of "Soundtrack", and to inherit the "Title" tag from the file name. After that, I will rename all the files (Using Audio Tag Tool -- awesome program, btw) with the format "<Artist> - <Title>.mp3"

The problem, is many of my files already contain the string "Soundtrack", which would be redundant. I happen to be a perfectionist, so I'm unable to ignore it and move on. Hence my question to you fine folk: I want to delete all instances of "soundtrack" (-i case irrelevant) in the filenames before I go through the above steps. But, its not quite that simple. This is a sample of some of the file names:

Ubuntu :: Search For An Exact String In A Terminal?

Oct 22, 2010

Is there hopefully a way to search for an exact string in Man Pages? I know if I want to search for anything containing -c I can just do this.

Code:

How would I search for "-c"? I want only "-c" to show up. So I tried this.

Code:
/"-c"

It took me literally and looked for the quotes also.

following can be used to locate files that contain the contents 'SomeString' or 'SomeOtherString':

How would I limit this to searching for the text 'SomeString' or 'SomeOtherString', but only if the file has extension .php, .inc or .js? Also - what piping to xargs does here? I don't understand how this command actually works.

For instance, running find . | grep terms.htmlgives my expected result while locate terms.html doesn't even though locate gets updated db - it might have to do with that it's an USB stick the file is on?
