General :: String Of Text Conversion?

Sep 24, 2009

I'm writing a centralized logging piece, and I need to grep out logs that have specific date tags. The date command returns abbreviated months (Sep), via "#date -d yesterday '+%b'" but I need it all caps. ie SEP vice Sep. Otherwise the grep doesn't catch it

Programming :: Warning: Deprecated Conversion From String Constant To Char*

Jul 3, 2010

I've just updated my linux system (Debian) and went to compile some code I'm working on. However it causes some problems, presumable because of GCC up dates. I get many of my subject line errors for example

../../common/Version_Control.cpp: In function int VersionControl():
../../common/Version_Control.cpp:55: warning: deprecated conversion from string constant to char*

So I check up the error and it comes from my error handler code which is a function

extern void SetError(char *string,int error_number)

The net tells me all I need to do is convert char *string to const char *string, however when I do so and recompile I get the following error

Error_Control.cpp: In function �void SetError(const char*, int)�:
Error_Control.cpp:41: error: invalid conversion from �const char*� to �char*�
make: *** [Error_Control.o] Error 1

I think I've done exactly what's recommended ?

Programming :: G++ Warning - Deprecated Conversion From String Constant To 'char*'

Jan 10, 2011

My problem is that the warning keeps apperaing when I run g++ compilation.

Say, I have a system runtime function with header (imaginary)sysruntime.h: void printfunction(char *line);

Then in my .cpp file, I will include the above header #include <sysruntime.h>

Then, I do the below:
Line12: char *linetoprint = "Print this line";
Line13: printfunction(linetoprint);

But, I will get the warning message "Line12: deprecated conversion from string constant to 'char*'". (Even though it compiles)

My question is how should I declare my char* so that I wont get this warning message, and can still run printfunction(char* line) correctly?

May 16, 2011

I am trying, using checkinstall to make eboard to enable use of this program with a DGT electronic chessboard (option not available in the program included in the repositories) according to the instructions given here.

General :: Using Sed And Grep With A Text String?

Apr 28, 2011

Q: Is there any way to use grep and sed with a string variable rather than with a file?

The problem: Im running through a LARGE (about 10,000 lines) xhtml file and need to replace every instance of lines beginning <p>~

The following code works but takes a long time mainlly because an in/out operation needs to be carried out on each line. If I could read from a string rather than a file it would take a much shorter time!

Code:
#!/bin/bash
count=$((0))
>tpf
echo "waiting....."

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 :: Searching A Specific Directory For Files Containing A Text String?

I am a member of a group which has written a program whose source code is being held in a specific directory (~cs252/Assignments/basicAsst/project) and we want to go through and change the parameters for the function "sequentialInsert." My job is to find all occurances of the function call to "sequentialInsert" and to also list the files from where the code came from. Also, I have to be in the commandsAsst directory when I do this. I have tried grep and find combined together, and I am at a lost.

Software :: Find And Delete String In Text Files?

Mar 6, 2010

I have a series of file names in a text file that I generated by running
Code:

bash-4.1# ls -alt *.txz | awk '{print $8}'
and then copy pasting the output. All of these file names have the version number
Quote:
-4.4.1-x86_64-1alien.txz

I just want a method to remove that version number from all the filenames so that I can then add all the packages without version numbers to a blacklist file.

I've tried kwrite and mousepad and both have a search feature and a replace feature but I haven't been able to just have the text removed successfully.

Debian Programming :: Script To Execute String From Text File

Sep 24, 2014

I am having trouble writing a script that monitors a text file. When the file contains number 1 (or any other string that is not a command) it does nothing, but when it is something different from 1, it executes that command.

So, there are 2 files: monitor.mon - this is the file that will be checked constanlty; and test.sh - the script that does the job. The monitor.mon file will have its content modified by php. This means a web page will have a form where I input commands and writes does commands in the file. Test.sh will watch when the file's content changes from character 1 to a command, execute that command and write back a 1 so it will not execute it more times.

I tried combining while and if but with no success. Tried reading the file with cat and grep -e but it doesn't seem to recognize when content changes.

Fedora Installation :: Text String To Enter To DISABLE Ip V6 100% During Install?

Feb 1, 2009

dose any one know the text string to enter to DISABLE ip v6 100% during the install?using the gui installer for fedora 5,6,7,8,9 i have been able to disable this ( uncheck a check box) then set the system up manually for ip4 .the reason is for some reason if ip6 is on during the install ( i have had this problem with all versions of fedora f5 through 9 and now 10)then fedora will never, never, NEVER ever connect to the net .the ip6 lookup kills my cable box, i boot into windows and it can not even connect until i unplug the box for 2 min and plug it back in and get a NEW/renewed ip address .so i do believe that i am going to need to do a text install and disable ip6.
