Ubuntu :: Return A List Of Files Without The Extensions?

Jan 3, 2011

I am writing a bash shell script and I am trying to use a select case to modify a few files with the same filename but different extensions (i.e. problem.tex problem.log problem .pdf etc.)

It goes something like this:

Select item in $list
compile $item.tex
open $item.pdf
delete $item.log

Right now my list is list=$( find . -maxdepth 1 -name "*.tex" ) which returns a list only from the current directory of all files ending in .tex so when I try to open the resulting .pdf file I get the error:

error: file problem.tex.pdf doesn't exist

So I'm trying to find a way to use just the name in a select menu.

Ubuntu :: Adding Extensions To Multiple Files Without Extensions?

Dec 28, 2010

I have a directory of a load of files without extensions. I know what the filetype should be, so is there any way of batch renaming the files to append a given extension onto it. i.e. text would be renamed as text.txt?

Debian Programming :: Return How Many Items Occurs In List (Python)

Jan 29, 2014

I going through the Python course on Codeacademy. I have some trouble understanding what I'm doing wrong. This is my code below:

Code: Select alldef count(sequence, item):
    total = 0
    for x in sequence:
        return x
        if x in sequence:
            total += 1
    return total
print count([1,2,1,1], 1 )

The code gives me an error: "Oops, try again. Your function fails on count([1],7). It returns 1 when it should return 0."

It should be outputting 3 because 1 occurs 3 times in the list.

General :: How To Tar Files With No Extensions

Sep 1, 2011

I have some directories with a varying numbers of files and subdirectories. All files that have no extensions have to be tared. Their names may change, thus they can not be hardcoded. Subdirectories may also contain a unspecified number of files and subdirectories that are not relevant and should not be included in the archive.

I'd like to be able to do this with a single line, not using any .sh scripts, so that this process could be reproduced as portably as possible.

Sample directory structure:

$ ls -1F

General :: Convert All File Extensions For Files In Many Sub-directories From Uppercase To Lowercase?

Sep 21, 2010

I'm trying to convert all file extensions for files in many sub-directories from uppercase to lowercase. I have two problems, how to list the absolute path to the files recursively over many sub-directories for which I so far have this:-

find ~/Photos -print which would be fine, except it gives the directories on their own when it finds them rather than just the files with absolute paths. I couldn't find a switch for the "ls" command to do this, so I had to improvise with "find". and once I get grab each absolute file name, to just change the file extension rather than the entire file, which is what I have at the moment.

Ubuntu :: Get A List Of All MP3 Files With Authors?

May 31, 2010

I have scoured the 'ls' man page, but I don't think it has the capability to do this. Specifically, I would like a command/program that will output a list of all of the files in "/home/anthony/Music/" in the following format:


artist1 - file1.mp3
artist2 - file2.mp3
artist3 - file3.ogg
artist4 - file4.flac

I really only need the artist and the song title. If it can't be formatted exactly like that, then it's not the end of the world.

Ubuntu :: How To List Files In A Package

Aug 15, 2010

whether the command-line tool "mysql" comes with mysql-server or mysql-client (I installed both at once, so I have no idea). It occurs to me that this is a good opportunity to learn more about linux package management.

I've tried saying "dpkg -L mysql-server", but it only lists the files in /usr/share/docs files for some reason. I'm sure there's got to be files elsewhere. Am I way off base?

Ubuntu :: List Files By Creation Date?

Aug 19, 2010

I'm looking for a terminal command that gives me the latest created folder in a directory tree.


ls -lR --sort=time --reverse

this i almost good, but a) it gives me files (rather than folders only), b) it sorts the files by folder (rather than just giving me a plain list of everything) and c) it takes way to long.

what i want:


2010-08-01 ./path/to/folder/a
2010-08-03 ./path/to/folder/b
2010-08-06 ./another/folder/c

Ubuntu :: Bash Scripting - To Copy A List Of Files

Dec 6, 2010

I'm writing a bash script to copy a list of files and do some stuff to them. Basically, I have the code written that does what it needs to do, but I can't quite understand why it works. I was hoping someone could clear up my understanding a bit.


The first line generates a list of files. I wrap each line in quotes because they usually have spaces in the directory names.

The second line changes IFS, and I understand what IFS itself does. What I don't quite get is what the separator becomes with that echo statement. If I'm reading that correctly, the backspace will remove the newline and essentially the result is nothing? I found this solution on a web page somewhere, but it was years old and there was no real explanation.
