bash 3.1.17(2) I'm trying do write a shell script which must operate on each line of an ASCII text file. So, all the code must be inside a loop, and inside the loop, the first thing should be to read the next line from the file. I have the bash read command. But it reads from stdin. Any way to make read from a file?
This script that I found online does the job it promises. it does convert the files to mp3 without an issue. What I need to include now is an if statement that says If $file.mp3 exists then delete $file.wav
Code: #!/bin/sh # name of this script: wav2mp3.sh # wav to mp3 # Credit to the script creator (Nikesh Jauhari):
After that I'm stumped as to how to do the if statement
We are building our C++ project in Kdevelop IDE. Every time we run "Run Configure" from the "Build" menu, a file named "libtool" gets automatically generated. This file contains a statement as "ECHO="echo"".f we run "Automake", without modifying the "libtool" the system hangs and theputer needs to be restarted.Therefore every time we run "Run Configure" we need to include the line "echo="echo"" below the statement "ECHO="echo"" manually.I think a script can be written which does the above on its own.I am not a shell script programmer, I know the good tutorials for shell scripts are available on the net, but learning scripting only for this task would be time-consuming and painful.
trying to learn how to write a bash script that will create a new text file named jimbola in my home directory. The file will need to be able to have the first and last name of Jim Bola included in it.
I have a text file that contains a single word and I want to write a bash script that will read the word from the text file... The following is my incorrect attempt, as it assigns the name of the textfile to the variable as opposed to the word stored within the textfile:(assume I have a text file value.txt that has its contents a single word, say wordone)
Code: #!/bin/sh for f in value.txt do echo $f done
so the output of the above script is value.txt, however I want it to be wordone.to summarise: how do I assign the value of the word contained within a textfile to a variable?
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.
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)
I have written the following code but it does not work:
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.
When you use an if statement directly in bash you have to put the ";" at the end or not? or am I mixing it with the for loop? I am reading advance bash scripting and it shows the if - then statements without ";" so I need a little clarification here.
i am trying to write a program which will read input from a text file, check if each line contains any alphabets and then display a message imforming me if there is an alphabet in each line. My text file is formatted in this way...
the following works and BASH doesn't complain, but VIM highlights the closing square bracket is if it sees a syntax error. Is there a better way to express regex in a case statement or is this an issue with VIM?

I have a text file called namelist.wps. In this file there is a line that reads:
Code: start_date = '2010-12-26_12:00:00', '2010-12-26_12:00:00', I have to automatically update the year, month, and day of month for this line without changing the rest of the file. Here is the script that I have:
I have a bash script that checks for contents in a folder every 15 seconds and then acts on it's contents. This works great for the average size file however on very large files it starts acting on the file before it's completely written. Is there a facility in bash shell to get a file complete signal or such? here is trigger to launch a larger script.
#!/bin/sh while true do $HOME/bin/hpgl.sh >/dev/null 2>&1 &
Something very handy to do in a Linux shell, is manipulating files and strings - essentially parsing data. Write a utility which will scan in a text file and search and replace strings. We also want to keep track of how many strings we've replaced.
I know that my command would look like this: <utility name> <filename> <stringToSearchFor> <stringToReplaceWith> Code: #!/bin/bash

I have a text file called namelist.wps. In this file there is a line that reads:Code: start_date = '2010-12-26_12:00:00', '2010-12-26_12:00:00', I have to automatically update the year, month, and day of month. I set values for the year, month, and day of month using the following code in a c-shell script:Code: set y1 = `date +%Y`set m1 = `date +%m`set d1 = `date +%d` After I do this, how do I update year, month, and day of month, without changing any of the other lines in the namelist.wps file?
