General :: Listing Files Recursively, Sorted By Time, Limited Head?

Mar 24, 2011

I'm trying to make a shell script that will list the 50 newest files in a directory with several subdirectories in. I've been trying with the find-command with no luck and now I've figured I should probably use ls. The problem is when I do "ls -lRt | head -50" it will do 1 directory at the time. It will not first make the full list and then sort it. This will display all items in first directory, sorted, then the newest directory will be sorted and displayed. So I figured I have to sort the whole process of ls before I limit the head. So this is where I am at now: ls -lRt | sort <something clever here> | head -50

Only doing a "|sort|" will sort it by name if I understand it right and I don't know how to solve it. Here's also my first attempt if that is of any interrest or help, this was limited by the change status time of files (so some lists got very large). These lists dit not get sorted by time and I could not find any way to do so.find $ftpDir -ctime $time -type f -print > $ftpFileLsAny help on this would be appreciated since I'm sort of stuck now. After reading manuals for all the options I can think of and still there's just a big blur in my head..

There is no home folder in the path!

Ubuntu :: Configuring Terminator And DevilsPie Sorted

Jun 13, 2010

I'm trying (well aiming) to customize my desktop so that on login Terminator is on workspace 3 (split 3 ways and running lynx, irssi and top. I'm using gdevilspie to configure it but I understand and can use the normal config files. When I use gdevilspie to make a terminal background it works but when i try to do stuff with terminator it doesn't.

Here's my terminator config so far:
( if
( begin
( is ( window_class ) "terminator" )
( begin
( undecorate )
( spawn_sync "top" )
( set_workspace 3 )
( maximize_horizontally )
( center )
( below )
( set_viewport 3 )
( println "match" )
) )

Once I do get devilspie sorted I also want to make Terminator automatically split and run the correct commands.

Software :: Have E-mail Automatically Sorted In IMAP-folders

Jun 11, 2011

I frequently receive e-mail from mailing lists in which I would like to stay active in, although when I access my e-mail I'd like to be able to have the unimportant e-mails in their specific IMAP-folders so I can read them later when I have time.

There is one very important requirement. It bugs me that people continuously keep advising me poor solutions that involve forwarding e-mail e.g. to blabla-mailinglist@domein.tld or storing the e-mail locally. I work frequently from different locations, use different e-mail accounts and see e-mail stored on the server rather than on my local machine as a great advantage.c.

I was thinking of preferably a simple solution that works via a cronjob to do sorting, so it will also work for Plesk and Gmail IMAP accounts. Sorting based on from/to/subject should be sufficient.

Programming :: Reading The Absolute File-path As Sorted?

Jun 13, 2010

I wanted to read out the absolute file-path (filename) as sorted in a folder (on Linux). The reading the file-paths is ok but I have problems in sorting.


selectedDirectory = fl_dir_chooser ("Select Imagedirectory:",NULL,0); //This is just a widget to show the folder.
DIR *d;
dirent *de;


The files -105.dcm, -106.dcm, -107.dcm lie in the folder at the bottom and -36.dcm, -37.dcm- at the top. The program compares 1 and 3 of 105 and 37, 1 is lesser than 3, then prints out first, but does not know that 105 is three digits and 37 is two digits.
