Programming :: [Java] Append Something To Each Line In A Text File?

Apr 15, 2009

I am thinking of appending something to each line in a text file with Java. I prefer not write a new file with content appended from the old one.That 'something' would probably be Time Stamp when the file is created (which is same for each line).I am not sure Java provide some easy way for it or not

Programming :: Delete Line Of Text From Text File Via Shell?

Jan 13, 2010

I have to delete a certain line of text from the a textfile via ubuntu's shell scripting.I have done research, and it seems that most people advocate the usage of sed /d option. sed makes does not edit the text file. Hence, most options I discovered involved the use of a temporary variable/textfile and then overwriting the old file with the temporary new file. Is there anyway whereby I can bypass the use of temporary storage containers? I hope there is any magical combination of commands to edit the file directly.

Programming :: Open Two Text Files - Read Them Line By Line And Update Parameters Of The 3rd File ?

I have two txt files containing x and y coordinates: xcoord.txt & ycoord.txt. I need to open them; read them line by line to get each coordinate; then each time I need to update Xs and Ys parameters inside another file called "dc.in" with the grabbed values.

Finally each time I need to run two exe files ( dc_2002 and st_vac) and produce corresponding output for each Xs and Ys ( dc.in is an input file for this exe files)

Programming :: Perl - Delete Line From Text File With Duplicate Match At Beginning Of Line

Apr 1, 2009

Was wondering if any perl guru's could help me with a quick log file adjustment. I have a text file that looks like so (tabs and newlines are revealed so you can see what separates the data):

There are maybe 100 lines of text in this file at any given time. I need to delete all duplicate lines only looking at the first bit of text prior to the first tab. It doesn't matter which one gets deleted as long as there are no two lines that begin with that same text at the beginning before the first tab. So in this example, either the fist line "1234" or the last line "1234" would need to be deleted. I already have code in my script that opens the files - I just need the code to read the text into an array and the part that would find matches based on the above criteria, and make the deletions.

If it would be easier, I can even do a system call and use SED (v4.1.5) and/or AWK (3.1.5) instead.

Programming :: Append A / At The End Of The Line?

Aug 10, 2010

The s means substitute
The $ in this particular regex (regular expression) means end of the line.
The ; is what you're subbing. This works fine and well, but what if you want to append a / at the end of the line?

sed 's/$///' filename doesn't work.

Software :: Append Text To File

Dec 2, 2009

I want to append some text to the file, files are mostly big, more then 100 mb. I found the cat command, so I can create a new txt file and then append it to the original file with it. Two questions:

1. Can I append text to the file instead of creating the new file and then appending it to the original file? eg:
Code:
cat file.avi "some text" > newfile.avi
2. cat takes several seconds to execute the merging files together, it seems that it is reading the original file first, is there a way skip the reading and just append the file?

OpenSUSE :: Append Text To An Entry In An Existing File?

Aug 30, 2010

How do you append text to an entry in an existing file? For example, lets say I have a file called "env.logon" in /home/myself/bin that contains the following text:

PATH=/bin:/sbin If I wanted to add, via command line, ":/usr/bin:/usr/sbin" to the PATH= and I
used the "echo" command (echo "PATH=:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin) it would create a second entry and my file would look like:

PATH=/bin:/sbin
PATH=:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin
What I want is for it to look like:
PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin

Is there a way to get this result via command line?

General :: Loop Append Text To Text Files?

Jan 15, 2010

may be an advanced question but I need to know how to do this. Here at work I am in charge of recruiting and we have about 1,000 resumes in already. All of the resumes are in a .pdf format. I need to rename every .pdf in the following format:{firstnameLastname}.pdfThe only way I know how to do this is to convert all the .pdf files to text, extract the name out of the first few lines of text, import into excel, and then use VBA to rename the files in mass:Here is my logic so far:~Deskop/a = houses all the .pdfresumesOpen terminal: Code: cd ~/Desktop/afor f in *.pdf; do pdftotext -raw $f; done That will convert all of the preceding resumes into text filesNow I would like to append the name of the text file into the last line of the text file. So, for example, for Resume1.txt, I want to append "Resume1.txt" to the last line within Resume1.txt. So after I run the command I open Resume1.txt and on the last line within I want to see "Resume1.txt" on the last line, at the end of the resume.How can I do this? I would like to use a loop and have the terminal append the filename to the body of the text file until all of the have been appended.

Programming :: Using Python To Merge Two Text Files Line For Line

Jul 6, 2010

I'm a bit new to Python programming and hoped that someone might be able to help with a problem I'm having. What I essentially want to do is to combine two text files line for line. I know how to do this in a bash script so to give you a better idea here's the code for that:

Code:

This is basically for adding on values to the end of a CSV file that uses ';' as the delimiter. So say file1 said:

And file2 said:

Then running this command would create merged_file1_and_file2 which would be:

The code I'm using at the moment is:

Code:

As I'm sure any experienced python programmer will see, this prints out the first line of the file "csvraw" and then all of the lines of "stamps" and then the remainder of "csvraw".

What I'd like to do is something like: (pseudo code, I know it's not python ;-))

Code:

Is this possible? I've tried googling and my Python Pocket Reference hasn't been much help. I've looked at pickling but that doesn't seem appropriate.
