Software :: Using Find To Only Search Specific Directories?
Jan 9, 2010
how the "-prune" option works. I've searched quite a bit on line, and as far as I can tell, "-prune" works exactly the opposite as it says.
I'm using Apt-proxy, and I want to scan through the folders, and find files that end with "*.bz2" The problem is that the search takes a while because of all the "*.deb" files. Fortunately, they're stored in their own folder:
each have two folders:
I need to search a bunch of files in a specific folder for a specific number and add all the numbers together to a total sum. I use Rsync everyday, everytime I run rsync i get a logfile (rsync output) witch contains the textstring "Total bytes sent: xxxxxx".
The "xxxxx" can vary in lenght. I need to extract the "xxxxxx" from each file and add the numbers together to a total size over a week or a month. Is this possible? And I wish to only use bash. One way of doing stuff at a time my friends .
How do you tell a shell script to search for the directory within another directory (in this case /lib/modules) whose characters in its name (in this case numbers) are highest? I want to be able to tell mkinitramfs in a script to be able to see the highest possible kernel version in the /lib/modules directory.
I am trying to create a bash script that will search all users home directories on a system for words like quit, steal, kill etc. Pretty sure I'm going to be using grep /home. The only thing is that obviously a word like 'kill' could have normal uses too like "I need to kill the process." How would I go about flagging a user with the word/phrase found, and the path while also omitting legitimate uses?
I have a dir (pub_html) with 45 sub dirsand in each there is a file with name file123.html) what command can I use to rename all files with this name in all sub dirs to file456.html ? I'm on opensuse 11.3
I'm trying to find a good desktop search tool. Beagle is dead, Recoll and Strigi are KDE, and Tracker is not many features (can't even search Thunderbird 3). Do I miss something? Is desktop search on Linux dead? Should I use Google Desktop Search instead
1. This script will create directories for a specific datatype. Example rickk, rik, rikky etc.2. This script will aslo create subdirectories labeled by the duration of an event.For example if an event where to take place for 5 days, May 5 - 10th. Folders will be labled:20100505, 20100506, 20100507, etc will be included in each datatype.Since this exercise will take 6 days there will be 6 subdirectories under each datatype.3. This script will also create cgi scripts for each of the dataype and day of the the exercise.For example dataype "rik" for May 09 will read rik5.cgi, since May 09 is the 5th day of the exercise.This is how it looks so far, it works great but I realized that if and when I plan to add more datatypes that its going to involve alot of repetivie typing. I figure to simplify this whole thing would be best to use loops. Can someone direct me to some good information concerning loops and sample of loops? I have a feeling that what I need to do is going to involve a nest of loops.
#!/bin/ksh root_dir=/opt/global/webservices/apache/app/test/dynamic/ cd $root_dir
I have written an init script which I have kept under /etc/init.d, I need to create links to the directories rc0.d, rc1.d, rc2.d, rc3.d etc.. So that I can use chkconfig command to control the starting and stopping of the script at specific runlevels.
I've figured out that '~i !~M' will give me all packages I have manually installed. Can I formulate a query such that I get all packages manually installed from a particular distribution (e.g. Lenny, Squeeze, Sid)? Yes, I'm using pinning.
How do you find a file modified March 17, 2010, between 3:30 pm and 4:05 pm? I know that I must be missing something somewhere.How do you search for info like this? I goggled "search files time Linux" and got about 38,300,000 results. I looked through the first four pages and did not see what I was looking for.Do I need to calculate how many minutes ago that is and give that to find.I really want to do this in the GUI so that I can operate on the files found without typing in so much stuff.
Is there an app or find parameter that can search for video files using a specific (DivX for example) encoding? On Windows, you can do this, so I was hoping there would be some way on Linux whether it's with find or another app. I want to find all (*.avi OR *.divx) on my file system with the DiVX fourcc tag (i think that's what its called)
how to search for a specific string of text inside an html document. I then want to cut out that specific data that the field or string contains. I want to do a shellscript that makes this function automaticly.
# #Here i want to find the field "town" inside the html/java and then cut #out the town name from it and paste that to an file. # #
am new to linux and trying to find a file in sub directories using find command as:find .-name *.jpg -type fBut I am unable to get the result as find command is not permitted by the server administrator.Is there any way to find files without using find command.
suppose in my current directory, I have 50 sub-directories. Now, I am interested only in about 20 of those sub-directories (whose names match a pattern). I would like to recursively list the contents of these 20 sub-directories. How do I do that ? I would like to do this in Solaris 10 and Linux(RHEL 5.x).
I am using CentOS 5.5 and I created few users (useradd john etc.) and now I want to assign privileges to this user on some directories and files in those directories. For example I want to give read privileges to directory "/documents" and all of files under that directory.
I'd like to create a tar file on my machine to distribute software to other machines which are all alike (including, usernames, groupnames, etc). I need to create certain files and directories with specific owners on the target machine. In order to do that, I use
Code: tar --create --owner=someone --group=somegroup --file package.tar files. However, for this to work, someone must be in my /etc/passwd and somegroup must be in my /etc/group. Is there a way to fake this so I don't have to create a bunch of users only for that purpose?
I have a vary unique problem with file and directory ownership. I need to change the ownership of multiple files and directories under a specific subdirectory.Under this directory structure there are files and directories owned my different users and groups. I need to change all files and directories owned by "user1" to "user2". but if any are owned by "user3" I need those left alone.Is there a simple way to do this or will I need to traverse the structure and change things one at a time.
I am thinking about writing a script to search through specific folders on a Linux based server (Centos 5) and report any changes made to any file on that server.Like a detailed change log with the date it was changed and the difference in size. Dose anyone know if such a script exist?
