Programming :: Need To Delete A Specific String

Aug 27, 2010

These must a be a question you received a lot, but I couldn't find a similar thread! It's a simple question.
I need to delete a specific string from a file. For example the specific numbers "3456" from a file. I've tried with the tr comand, using
Code:
tr -d '3456' file,
but it also deleted whichever ocurrence of 3,4,5,6 from my file. Should I use a regular expression?

Ubuntu :: Bash Script To Delete/replace A Specific String Of Text?

Jun 17, 2010

What i want to do is pretty simple.I want to uncomment every line that begins with "deb" (except for deb cdrom) in /etc/apt/sources.list.I know how to do this through system > administration > software sources.I know I can gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.I'd rather not do it that way.I'd rather have a script do it. It's less work, less typing, less clicking, and would work the same on every ubuntu version.

Programming :: C - Put A Specific Arbitrary Part Of A String Into It's Own String?

Apr 18, 2010

So if I'm given a location of a file like:

How can I just take the type of the file at the end? I know I can use strrchr() for a period to get the pointer to the period just before file type. Is there a build in string function that will just take the rest of the string from a certain point on forward in the string? I know it wouldn't be much work to make it myself, but I figured I would find out if it already existed before doing it.

General :: Delete All Lines Containing A String, Plus 4 Lines Below It?

Jan 26, 2010

I've come across an unusual requirement for a service in my Ubuntu system.Simply put, I need to find a way to search for all instances of a term in a file, delete lines containing containing that term, and delete four lines below each instance of that term. ither that, or copy the entirety of a file to a new file and skip over all lines containing the term plus four below it.This sounds kinda weird, I know. Without going too far into detail, I either have to change the logfile format for a server I'm running which is a huge pain in the butt, or I can just run a script to edit an HTML report generated from said logs. (Said report is really just for managers to peruse, and I like my log format, so I'm pursuing option 2.)

Software :: Find And Delete String In Text Files?

Mar 6, 2010

I have a series of file names in a text file that I generated by running
Code:

bash-4.1# ls -alt *.txz | awk '{print $8}'
and then copy pasting the output. All of these file names have the version number
Quote:
-4.4.1-x86_64-1alien.txz

I just want a method to remove that version number from all the filenames so that I can then add all the packages without version numbers to a blacklist file.

I've tried kwrite and mousepad and both have a search feature and a replace feature but I haven't been able to just have the text removed successfully.

Programming :: Delete Line In File Matching String?

Jan 26, 2010

Quote:Originally Posted by topcatI would like to know how i can write a shell script to delete a line if a particular pattern exists?E.g. I have a text file with multiple lines. Say 1000s. in the following pattern.

username@email.com:149.0.3.4:1
username1@email.com:149.0.3.4:1
username1@email.net:149.0.3.4:1
username1@email.edu:149.0.3.4:1

If the patternusername@email.com exists then the line "username@email.com:149.0.3.4:1 should be deleted from the file.I have a very similar question but I need to delete one line in a file which matches one very precise instance of a string only. Let's assume I have a file composed of thousands of lines and let's call the file chap-secrets. Let's take the following sample entries:

Code:
#USERNAME SERVER PASSWORD IP
pp pptpd blahblah *

so, in this example. I'd like to search the file for string 'foo' and delete all lines from that line until [bar] (not deleting the line with [bar])

Ubuntu :: Evolution - How To Delete Specific Email

Mar 2, 2011

I've got a problem with my evolution here at work, which is running on a vanilla Ubuntu 10.10 install. Yesterday we received an email from a supplier with some tiff attachments. When this email is clicked on it freezes Evolution. The further problem is that I can't even browse into the inbox folder where it is since that email is the last thing that was highlighted. What is the best method for removing a single email from the Inbox? I thought about into the .evolution/mail folder, but I wasn't sure which files to modify to solve the problem.
