General :: Edit Last Word On Each Line In File?

May 28, 2010

I have a file which a number at the end of each line. I need to change this number in the file to be correct, i.e. each time the number is 9 it needs to be 1, each time it is 233 it needs to be 2, etc... There is no pattern to the numbers currently in the list other than the same number appears only in a single line/group of lines, not throughout the file, but the replacements need to be sequential (but can be repeated an arbitrary number of times).

Programming :: Bash Script Which Uses Awk To To Fetch A Line From A File?

Mar 24, 2010

Below is the part of my bash script which uses awk to to fetch a line from a file. Choice is set by a case, and i know it is receiving a proper number because of the echo statement. The problem is with the syntax of the awk command it says the error is with one of the ', but when I run the command at the command line and replace "$choice" with a number it works properly. So I am not sure what is going on.

echo "announcing choice $choice"
command="awk 'NR = "$choice"' beerpong.txt | say"

Programming :: In A Bash Script - Move A Line To A New File?

Apr 23, 2011

I've got a bash script I'm using to download a text file list of links via axel. What I'd like to do is automate the movement of completed links in the for loop when axel has successfully completed the download. This is what I've got. I can figure that I can just echo append the line to a new file, but what is the easiest way to delete the line with the link I just downloaded?

Code:

for i in $( cat $1); do
axel --alternate --num-connections=6 $i

Programming :: Changing A Line In A Config File While Installing The Program Using Bash Script

Jul 22, 2011

I am trying to write a bash script that installs a program fully automated for me. I am stuck at the one part where i need to change a line in one config file. I have tried various syntax for sed and none have worked. Maybe someone can suggest how to go about this. Since the line appears in the middle of the file, I can't use echo or cat. Also the file will be diffrent lengths depending on the install.

The line I need changed is:

I need that changed to:

the last syntax i tried is:

Yes this is for PNP4Nagios on centos 5.6 64bit. If i can get this figured out. I will be willing to post the whole thing for others to use. it will be used to install PNP after a working nagios install is done.

Programming :: BASH Sort List By End Of Line To X Position In Each Line?

Aug 18, 2010

I'm trying to make another file annotation script a little speedier than it has been by the up-until-now proven method of checking the last four characters in a filename before the "dot" (eg .jpg, .psd) against a list of known IPTC categories and Exiv2 command files. It occurred to me that if one script generated a list of files in directory foo, and the same or another script sorted that list by that four-letter tag,then that list could be used(instead of a for/do/done loop on the real files in the folder) by the command-file-matching script to "vomit out" which annotator file would go with file nastynewfile.jpg, f'r'instance. The script I had been using for this task looks like this:

Code:

while read 'line';
do
sp=$(echo $line)
vc=$(echo $sp | cut -d"," -f1)
cv=$(echo $sp | cut -d"," -f2)

[code]....

Where I seem to be stuck is with how to sort the lines in templist, which may be any number of different lengths, from back to front. sort -k looked promising, except it seems only to work the other way round. I thought of invoking a

Code:

q=$(expr length $line); echo $q
n=$[q-8]; echo $n

kind of thing, but that presented the problems of how to sort by those, how to tell sort where to find them (grep?) and how to "stitch them back in" to the original list, which is what I want to sort in the first place.

Programming :: Bash Md5sum Edit With Sed?

Jan 5, 2011

I am trying to get a checksum for a file in a subscripted variable in a bash script. md5sum outputs a checksum and the name of the input file. For example:

Code:
eval CSUM$K=$"(md5sum file)"

This might return something like this:

Code:
3cff5d5c0113959d0be62be34b97e05c file

I want to assign just the checksum to the variable in my shell script and omit the file name that follows. Is there something besides md5sum that will generate a checksum? Or if not, then I was thinking I might be able to extract the checksum without the file name using sed.
