Programming :: Bash Script - Grepped A Log File To Obtain Every Line That Contains A Word

I have grepped a log file to obtain every line that contains a word (let's call it 'blah'). I now want to only display a list of entries within that search result that feature the word 'host' anywhere in the line, and I also want to display the single word *after* 'host' (up until the next space). So, the end result will look like this:

General :: Write A Bash Script That Will Read The Word From The Text File?

Jun 10, 2011

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)

for f in value.txt
echo $f

so the output of the above script is value.txt, however I want it to be summarise: how do I assign the value of the word contained within a textfile to a variable?

I'm working in Debian, and I've noticed that when I resize my PuTTY window, the console inside isn't resizing to the new dimentions, so things like nano are running at 80xwhatever instead of the more useful 130xsomething that I've offered it.

Slackware :: Intel Graphics / Vertical Lines From Xpdf/gv Under Xterm Stick To Xterm Window Making It Unreadable?

Jun 13, 2011

Start xpdf or gv. Click an xterm to be active and slide it over xpdf/gv. Vertical lines from xpdf/gv under the xterm stick to the xterm window above and make it unreadable.

The problem does NOT show with KDE default settings with display effects on but does show in fvwm, xfce etc, and in KDE without effects.

On a system with a Sandy Bridge integrated graphics (i5-2400) the problem went away by downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.13.0. But it was not enough for another system with 945G which needed downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.12.0.

Programming :: Wrapping Around Functions With Different Return Types?

Feb 1, 2010

I have functions which return different data like: int, char*, double...

I also have a list of datatypes (INTEGER, TEXT, REAL...) which can be returned.

I need to map a datatype with function, which purpose is to return it. Therefore, when I determine a datatype, I would like to call the required function without doing switch all the time.

My idea is to have an array of structs like this:

struct type_func_map
int type;
void (*func_wrapper_int)(void); //void (*func_wrapper_text)(void); void (*func_wrapper_real)(void);

Ubuntu :: Error - Fixme:d3d:state_wrap (WINED3DRS_WRAP0) Texture Wrapping Not Yet Supported

Sep 23, 2010

I think this might go for gaming, but maybe a general graphics problem could be taken into consideration for anything else that might display this error:

Code: fixme:d3d:state_wrap (WINED3DRS_WRAP0) Texture wrapping not yet supported. That was spammed in my terminal after I logged into my character. This was spamming itself before logging into my character:
err:d3d_surface:surface_allocate_surface >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_VALUE (0x501) from glTexImage2D @ surface.c / 862
err:d3d_surface:surface_allocate_surface >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_VALUE (0x501) from glTexImage2D @ surface.c / 862


Just to let you all know, I'm not all that advanced in Ubuntu or Linux knowledge, this game is just the only thing keeping me from going completely Ubuntu. I only have Windows installed to play this game, and I've gotten as far as to get this game playing this far,

Debian Multimedia :: Mulling FVWM And Desktop Managers

Sep 10, 2011

I already have a pretty comfy setup, with Openbox over LXDE, but I'm curious about something: Even though I started out with LXDE, I removed the lxpanel and replaced it with Tint2, then I removed the LXDE right-click menu and replaced it with the Openbox menu. Finally, I replaced PCmanfm with Thunar, and run my wallpaper on Nitrogen. In fact, the only thing that says "LXDE" anymore is the logout menu, and if I could replace that with something sleeker that fit my theme, i would.

Question: Would it have made more sense to simply not install LXDE at all? I've heard of people who say they just run Openbox. Do they mean they have to run it on top of something like LXDE, or do they just have Openbox and nothing else? It sounds like that's what I could have done here and had virtually the same thing. Am I right?

Also, I've heard a lot about FVWM, and I'm curious as to whether it's that much better than what I have now. Is there a way to "try it out?" I don't want to replace a thing that I have here now, at least until I decided I liked FVWM better (which I don't know I will). There's very little i don't like about Openbox (absence of a volume control icon in the taskbar, for one), but I'm always into tinkering, and I like the idea of switching themes. By that I mean switching wallpaper, icon themes, window themes, conky configs, everything, all with a keystroke. I've done it with scripts in the past, but that's "doing it the hard way," and I've been on the hunt for a desktop manager that has this feature.

What app can I use? I tried and failed miserably using the command line iwconifg/iwlist tools.
