this is posable but am trying to do this "Create folder from a filename and move the file into the folder" i have 500000+ file's i need to do with is there a easy way?I really don't want to download them all make/move them with filemonkey just to re-upload them
I can do multiscan documents using xsane and the scanner and create multipage PDF. My next wonderment was how would you create it so you can search for text in the PDF file. I am assuming the scanner is really just creating an image file. And the reader needs text? I did find a decent OCR web based solution. It looks like it would be a lot of work to put something like that together.
I have a file with 5000 lines. it is a list of books authors, series and titles. all lines start with the author names, than there is a dash (-) than the series name, a dash again and the title of the book.
The problem I encounter is that sometime there is a series, sometime not, and as I try to enter this list in a database, I wanted to create a cvs file to import into mysql.
The best would be to be able to add in the second line, a "space dash space" just after the author name, but how to make sure it does not do it to the first line as well.
If I could separate all line with 2 dash, (grep ?) then I would be able to do a simple replace, and change the single dash into two.
I want to copy location of every .avi , .jpg file present in a folder or in subfolder present in a direcotry and save in a textfile how to doex : /home/username/Desktop/bookofeli/video/book.aviit should give full locaiton of path how to do
trying to learn how to write a bash script that will create a new text file named jimbola in my home directory. The file will need to be able to have the first and last name of Jim Bola included in it.
I need to create a script to count the number of lines from a text file . The output must be put on another text file (no_lines.txt) and in this file i need to generate from the script this output :"File $FILE has $NO_LINES lines ".
im trying to output a list of running processes via a shell script. At the moment i got this which outputs the processes to a text file called out.
echo $(ps aux) >>out
The problem is though, the processes are all just one big block of text which makes it hard to read. Does anyone know how to sort the output to a text file so that it prints to the text file at 1 process per line? I know its probably simple but im very new to linux.
For example if you want to create an alias in Linux with a message echoed into the variable would the following command be; alias hello="(echo)"Hello." "? I'm trying to learn some environment variables and aliases.
Firstly i'd like to introduce myself before I ask my question, i am currently studying a "Network Operating System 2" course, and in the syllabus the professor decided to use Ubuntu Linux for us. This is a first for me and I am truly greatly interested in the OS. It seems like a solid system once you get to know the deep foundations of it. The professor has already given us an assignment, but I feel its not fair as its just a bit too much from out of what he taught us .. He did not teach us what he is asking for. He asked us to create to a text file which lists the Sales from two Salespersons, and each one will have an amount for each month .. So 12 entries for each salesperson.
Using that text file, we should write a bash script which would read the values from the above text file, and produce a "Monthly Sales" text file, which shows the total sales of each month (combined from both the salespersons). I would like to ask for some guidance, some help on how to start. It's just that he didn't teach us any commands about this matter.
