Programming :: BASH Conditionals - Passing Condition As Variable ?

Sep 17, 2009

I'm trying to implement an assert function similar to:[url]

However, I'm having trouble with file existence testing when the file name has a space in it.

I have distilled the problem down to the following:

This code works as expected, printing 'yes' if '~/test file' exists, and no if not.

Code:

However, this code gives an error.

Code:

The error:

Code:

Which tells me that it is splitting ["~/test file"] into ["~/test] and [file"]. Why? Is there a way around this?

Note that if you simply use a file path without a space, both cases work perfectly. Is this a BASH bug possibly? I just can't understand why the first would work, but the second wouldn't.

Programming :: Bash - Passing Variable To Ssh?

May 8, 2010

I have a file with around 1000 IP addresses in it and I need to be able to ssh into each one of them, run a single command, and then exit. I already know the ssh command I want to run and it looks like this:

Code:

shpass -p [password] ssh -p 10022 -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no root@[ip variable] 'reboot'

(I know shpass is not good to use and keys are the correct way but I don't have any other options in this scenario.) if these ip addresses were in a .csv file, by themselves with no other information, how would I create a script to do the above command to each ip until the end of the file?

Programming :: Passing A Variable To Bc In Bash ?

Jan 14, 2009

I cannot for the life of me get this little (simple) script I wrote to work. Here is the entire script:

Code:

#!/bin/bash
ASPECT=`mediainfo $1 |grep "Display aspect ratio" |cut -d : -f 2`
HEIGHT=`echo "320 / $ASPECT" |bc`
SIZE=`echo 320x$HEIGHT`

[code]......

An input filename ($1) is fed into mediainfo, which by the use of grep and cut spits out a single number which is the aspect ratio. This is then divided by bc into 320, which gives the desired height dimension for the file that I want ffmpeg to create for me. Finally, ffmpeg runs using the calculated dimensions... Basically, it's the passing of the $ASPECT variable to bc that seems to fail. It looks like bc won't read the output from the mediainfo line... It always crashes out with:

Code:

(standard_in) 1: illegal character: ^M I've tried doing something even simpler like this to debug by just trying it to display the calculation on the screen:

Code:

#!/bin/bash
ASPECT=`mediainfo $1 |grep "Display aspect ratio" |cut -d : -f 2`
HEIGHT=`echo "320 / $ASPECT" |bc`
echo $HEIGHT

and it does the same, so it's definitely bc that won't accept the output from mediainfo.

Programming :: Bash: Repeat Commands Until A Condition Is Matched?

Debian Programming :: Passing Variable Between Invocations

Jan 9, 2014

I want to build on the code from /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/05etckeeper to work with Snapper, the new-in btrfs (et al) snapshot package.

Code: Select allDPkg::Pre-Invoke       { "if [ -x /usr/bin/etckeeper ]; then etckeeper pre-install; fi"; };
DPkg::Post-Invoke      { "if [ -x /usr/bin/etckeeper ]; then etckeeper post-install; fi"; };

The etckeeper code will work well as a template, but I need to pass a parameter between the pre- and post- instances. The parameter is obtained from the pre- invocation and passed to the post- invocation.I know that something similar to my quest is done with the 'pid' but how to do it in the 'standard' way. Happily there can't be multiple dpkg instances running concurrently (prevented by dpkg?) so I don't have to worry about that issue.

Q1. What is the 'standard' way of passing parameters about?

Code: Select allsnapper -c etc create -t pre  -p     (which 'prints' the parameter (int) to pass to the following invocation)
snapper -c etc create -t post --pre-number  <parameter>  in place of the two etckeeper calls.

Q2. How do I pick up the 'printed' output of the 'pre' call? I think it's just a 'get' from the stream but perhaps I've missed something.?

Programming :: Passing Local Variable Pointers In ASM

Apr 12, 2010

I want to know is there some more efficient way of passing a pointer to a local variable as a parameter to a function in x86 asm? Right now I have to move the base pointer to a temp register, subtract from the register and pass that, like this (assuming a local var at esp-4):

Code:
mov eax, ebp

Is there a better way?

Programming :: Bash - Read Content Of File To Variable And Use This Variable In For Loop ?

Aug 21, 2009

I'm trying to read content of file to variable and use this variable in for loop. The problem is, when I have c++ comment style in file - /*. Spaces in line are also interpreted as separated lines.

For example:

Code:

Changing $files to "$files" eliminate these problems but causes that whole content of variable is treated as one string (one execution of loop).

Programming :: Passing PHP To Bash Script And Then Back?

Jul 15, 2010

I have a bash script called bash I am trying to execute from PHP. I think I have that right (not sure yet). Ideally let me explain what I am doing. The front end will pass a variable from a text entry box, called New_Task, the New_Task needs to be executed in the bash script and the output needs to be displayed back on the front end. So let me give some code and let me know what you all think.bash code is quite long, but essentially it is made to take a entry and create a task out of it. eg. "svn branch <Task Name>". The code below is getting the New_Task variable passed from the text entry box ($NewTask) and I have an exec for the bash script, but I am not sure it is working, I need to add some code to see the input in the front end.PHP back end code:PHP Code:

functionmTaskCreator()

Programming :: Bash: Passing Output To Another Programs Input?

Nov 12, 2009

I am not sure if that Subject really explains it, basically I have a script that executes a CLI java-applet that requires a passphrase from the user. I can easily execute this by issuing the -p argument followed by the passphrase however that shows up on possible logs or at least on the results of the ' ps ' command. If you do not supply this -p argument it provides a new line with the echo " Enter Passphrase: " and asks for input.

how can I provide a result/input for the Passphrase request and is it still possible to throw this application in the background with the ' & ' following the command? I have seen a few examples that show a /bin/expect that expects a result and sends a command however I would like to refrain from any extra dependencies. Example of Regular Execution of application:

Code:

$ /usr/local/***/**** -u USERNAME -r Default-Realm -f certificate.der

Programming :: Python Passing Multiple Args To Bash

Jan 14, 2011

I have a text string I want to pass as the second arg to a bash shell.

My python line is :

The first arg "gap" works great and the bash shell uses it as $1

I need "fill" passed along as $2 intact

Here is the bash line:

As you can see after the -f it has to be in single quotes and $FILL will complete the single quote

Nothing is getting passed as a second arg from python, I did have the first word at one time but that was 85 tries ago and forgot how I did it!

The bash script complains about an unterminated quote.

General :: Use A Global Variable To Apply A Condition Within A Script

Feb 28, 2011

I'm trying to use a global variable to apply a condition within a script.

The idea is to use this variable set to e.g. 1 or 2 to run a different part of the script accordingly. I can set the global variable with e.g.

Code:
export WL0=1

run my part of script, increment it by 1 with e.g.

Code:
WL0=$((WL0+1))

but if I re-run the script my WL0 is still set to 1!

I've also tried to add an

export $WL0 at the very end of my script (after the math) but this doesn't change the global variable apparently.

Programming :: SH: Passing A Variable Out Of A "while - Do - Done" Loop

Jul 3, 2011

"While ; do ; done" is very convenient for SH coding. However sometimes you may be annoyed by your computed variable within the "while do done" type loop. What to do how to pass it out of the loop to the outside of the bash code? A solution is to write it into the /tmp or on the disk... and to call it back after. - not elegant... really not... Anyone would know a trick another alternative that would look nicer?

Code:
# Count file total size
TOTAL_SIZE=0
LISTOFFILES=`cat "$HOME/.fvwmoscfg/fvwmburnerlist.lst"`
echo "$LISTOFFILES" | while read i ; do
SIZE=`du -bs $i | cut -f 1`
TOTAL_SIZE=`expr $SIZE + $TOTAL_SIZE`
echo "$TOTAL_SIZE" > "$HOME/.fvwmoscfg/fvwmburnerlisttotalsize.lst"
done
TOTAL_SIZE=`cat $HOME/.fvwmoscfg/fvwmburnerlisttotalsize.lst`

echo "The total size of all files and folders is : $TOTAL_SIZE"

Programming :: (BASH) Keep Variable In Scope?

Jul 15, 2011

i've just started to learn about functions in Bash scripting. I'm able to set the functions and execute the commands correctly. However, if my_var is set in the first function and then later in the script in the script the 2nd function is called, it doesn't seem to remember my_var and quits (at least i suspect this is the problem).

Here's my code (it requires yad available via webupd8. org). My specific problem seems to lay in line #27 where if we view the changelog and then exit that window, it returns to the "main" function but any subsequent commands cause a crash. Is this because of the get command on line #29? It's presumably now out of scope after calling menu on line #25?
