Programming :: Sed: Delete Last Line Matching A Pattern?

Mar 27, 2011

I have a question about sed programming, actually a one-liner for which I cannot find a solution, right now. I need to delete a line matching a specific pattern only if it is the last line. In practice, I would put together the following:

Code:
#
# This deletes the last line of a file

Programming :: Delete Line In File Matching String?

Jan 26, 2010

Quote:Originally Posted by topcatI would like to know how i can write a shell script to delete a line if a particular pattern exists?E.g. I have a text file with multiple lines. Say 1000s. in the following pattern.

username@email.com:149.0.3.4:1
username1@email.com:149.0.3.4:1
username1@email.net:149.0.3.4:1
username1@email.edu:149.0.3.4:1

If the patternusername@email.com exists then the line "username@email.com:149.0.3.4:1 should be deleted from the file.I have a very similar question but I need to delete one line in a file which matches one very precise instance of a string only. Let's assume I have a file composed of thousands of lines and let's call the file chap-secrets. Let's take the following sample entries:

Code:
#USERNAME SERVER PASSWORD IP
pp pptpd blahblah *

General :: Parse A File And Print Each Line That Ends With Matching Pattern (if The Next Line Is Blank)

Aug 2, 2010

I've written a script to parse a file and print each line that ends with matching pattern, if the next line is blank. The pattern lines are the result of md5sum $i|sed 's/path///g' so that only md5 and filename appear. Here's what I'm using.

Quote:
for fline in `sed -n '/.*.ext$/p' file1`
do
if [ "`sed -n -e '/'"$fline"'/ {n; p;}' file1`" == "" ]
then
echo ""$fline" has no info" >>file2
fi
done

Programming :: Shell Script To Delete Part Text Of A Line If Pattern Matches?

Apr 12, 2010

I am trying to create a shell script, on taking a input file as parameter, which need to do 3 things

1) create a copy of existing file.

2) add a new line to the copied file.

3) strip off all the absolute paths inside the copied file

The first 2 points are straight forward. but i am finding it difficult to acheive the 3rd point. myself not very good with awk and sed. but gave it a shot in vain. For example, the input script consists of below,

PROGRAM=`/usr/bin/basename $0`
HOST=`/usr/bin/uname -n`
echo Start $PROGRAM `/usr/bin/date` |
/usr/bin/tee -a $LOG

The output of the script should look like,

PROGRAM=`basename $0`
HOST=`uname -n`
echo Start $PROGRAM `date` |
tee -a $LOG

General :: File Matching Pattern On Command Line?

Sep 9, 2011

I've got files in a directory as follows:

1.png
1_thumb.png
1-1.png
1-1_thumb.png

[code]....

I want to list all the files that don't have a copy with the same filename with -1 somewhere in it. So, in the example above, the results would be 3.png.

NB: the file and its copy with "-1" in it will be the same filesize, if that helps.

Programming :: Use Sed To Find String Pattern And Delete Subsequent Characters?

May 3, 2010

I have a file with a number of strings like the ones below

string1#m1asdfe23easdf23wefas
string2#mfaaeb2vr1rhserh
anotherstring#ji89ensrsegr
anotherone#m1ynmdt324nsdt

I'm trying to delete everything after #** so that

string1#maasdfeaveasdfawefas
string2#mfaaebvrserhserh
becomes
string1#ma
string2#mf

tried sed 's/#..*//g' but as you all will know it returns string1, string2 etc.

Programming :: Insert Line Of Text Prior To Pattern Only Once?

Jun 29, 2010

I have a file like so:

Code:

one
two
three
four

I would like to insert prior to the word "three" all items from this second file with the following contents:

Code:

four
three
two
one

Now my issue is, and I have been using both sed and awk currently, that after the second line of the new file is read there will of course now be 2 copies of the word "three" but I would like to only insert the final 2 words, ie "two" and "one" prior to only the first occurrence of the word "three" so final file will look like:

Code:

one
two
four

[code]....

So here there is now only one of each word from the second file joined to make the new file. For simple code I have tried something like the following:

Code:

while read line
do
awk -v n=$line '!f && /three/{print n;f++}1' file1 > tmp_file
mv tmp_file file1
done < file2

Now this works but seems very clumsy to me. There is obviously a better sed and / or awk out there.

Programming :: S/ Command Won't Replace Two Occurrences Of Pattern On Same Line

Dec 15, 2009

Here's the actual line of code, which exists in a bash script:

Code:

I want to replace instances like this:

Code:

with this:

Code:

Using this:

Code:

Which works great when there's only ONE of the pattern on the line. But in a case like the "actual line" I posted first, where there are two patterns, separated by a slash, only ONE gets replaced

Watch:

Code:

Why? There must be (among many other things) something I'm not knowing about sed, that's causing this.

-- I'm currently using the ~ (tilde) as the separator in the sed command. It doesn't matter, I've used / ~ and % with no difference.

-- As a test, I tried putting a different character(s) in the middle of the original pattern instead of the / but that made no difference.

-- I've come up with various similar but slightly different regexs that will do this replacement, but they all have had this same result.

-- I tried the sed single-quoted, double-quoted, and unquoted; the latter fails to execute, and the formers both work as described here: wrong.

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 :: Matching Two Tables Of Non-matching Sizes?

Mar 2, 2011

I have two table files with x (1st column) ,y (2nd column) coordinates and intensity (3rd column). I need to match these two tables and divide the intensities at the consecutive coordinates on the 3rd column.

Here is Table 1:

Programming :: If Statement Pattern Search / End Of Pattern Special Character?

Apr 29, 2010

I have to enhance the behaviour of a backup script written in perl. I don't need to change it, what I need to do is to create a bash script that does some checks like file name and file size, execute the backup script then check if the backup files match the original files.Here's how I try to do it:

- read the files from the original files folder
- store them in an array
- search in the array the files that have a specific file extension
- store the file names that match the search pattern (I know the backup script skips some files so I can hardcode the search pattern)
- run the backup script
- read the files from the backup folder
- store them in an array
- compare the original files name and size stored in an array with those from the backup folder
- send a report email
