General :: Exec Command With Grep Output?

Feb 15, 2011

I have a requirement to find the files having its name as ack_reply. However, there are many other files in the same directory as these resides. Now I have to remove these files from the folder and retain others after 7 days. So I tried to write the below script with grep command.

find $directory -type f -mtime +7 | grep ack_reply

how can I pass this output to -exec command.

If I am not using grep command my script would be as

find $directory -type f -mtime +7 -exec remove.sh {}\;;

How can I use -exec with grep and find.

General :: Use '{}' To Redirect Output Of A Command Run Through Find's -exec Option?

Jan 10, 2011

I am trying to automate an svnadmin dump command for a backup script, and I want to do something like this:

find /var/svn/* ( ! -name dir -prune ) -type d -exec svnadmin dump {} > {}.svn ;

This seems to work, in that it looks through each svn repository in /var/svn, and runs svnadmin dump on it.

However, the second {} in the exec command doesn't get substituted for the name of the directory being processed. It basically just results a single file named {}.svn.

I suspect that this is because the shell interprets > to end the find command, and it tries redirecting stdout from that command to the file named {}.svn.

Ubuntu :: Piping Command Output Into Grep As Search Term?

Nov 11, 2010

I want to pipe the output of a command into grep as the search TERM, rather than the text to be searched, like this for example

Code:

cat /var/log/auth.log | grep date "&b &d"

so that I only see the lines in auth.log for the current day...but obviously that line doesn't work.... is there a way to do this with grep, or even another command?

General :: Grepping Grep Output Fails

Feb 5, 2010

I'm trying to grep the output of ngrep. Unfortunately when I add another grep to the pipeline, I get no output at all. It can be some other command too - cat / grep / tee - everything breaks the chain. Example:

[Code]....

If I use cat somefile instead of ngrep at the start, everything works as expected.

General :: Grep - Filtering Output By OR Condition

Aug 13, 2010

Is there some way to filter output of command by OR condition in Linux? There is filtering by AND condition with grep in way like:
ls -l | grep "^a" | grep "z$"

That says: list all files that beggins with "a" AND ends with "z" (so there is shorter way to write this: grep "^a.*z$", but it is not matter). Is there some way to perform test by OR condition? For example: files that starts exactly with "xen" OR files that ends exactly with ".rpm". But exactly, not something like:
grep "[xen]{0,3}.*[.rpm]{0,4}"

General :: Filtering Out Duplicate Lines From A Find/grep Output

Mar 22, 2010

I have some big files of logs that contain errors printed by an app. They are most of the time relevant, however most of them are similar. So i figured i could check what happened between a time interval with a find.

Im using this one

Code:

And I get an output similar to this one.

Code:

Is there a way to condensate the output lines to get only one or two, indicating the start and last occurrence of a block? Or I need to create a program to do so?

Because right now I get thousands of similar lines, but when I'm scrolling through them i sometimes miss relevant information that i would've otherwise noted if it wasn't all that spammy.

General :: Can't Quit Terminal Command - Grep Some_word?

Sep 5, 2010

After typing "grep some_word" on terminal 6, the system doesn't do a thing, just lets me type endlessly. I've tried "Esc", "q" , [CTRL] + x, "exit" and no luck. I bet I'll kick my ass when you tell me but at the moment I can't figure it out. Rebooting would probably solve the problem but there must be a better way.

Programming :: How To Get Grep Output 0 - 1 And Test It

Apr 7, 2009

I am trying to use a shell script to find a string in a file and do something when found. code...

What should happen is pppd will start in a different process and stream it's output to pppdout. pppdout should be created in the current folder. Then the script should periodically check the pppdout file for the string Script (which eventually will appear, some seconds later) and when found exit the script. Ultimately the script will do something useful when the text is found. However, the output from the program is a repeating: 'scriptname.sh: 12: FOUND: not found'

Where scriptname.sh would be the name of your script and 12 refers to the line with 'done'.

Why does grep not find the text, or at least why deos my script not check the grep output correctly?

Programming :: Storing Grep Output To Feed Awk To Retrieve Entire Records Matching Variable

Jul 28, 2010

I have two files :

FileA
prot1
prot5
prot9
prot15

[Code]....

What I need to do is to extract from fileB the fields containing only the strings in fileA.

I thought awk could do the job easily with :

Code:
awk 'BEGIN { RS = "###" } /'$variable'/' fileB > output

where variable would maybe be the output of grep from fileA. So can I store the output of grep in a variable to use it afterwards with awk ?

something like that:

Code:
result=`grep prot. fileA` ; awk 'BEGIN { RS = "###" } /'$result'/' fileB > output
but that doesn't work. I'm always getting the entire fileB.

The output of grep get stored in the variable, I verified that with echo. So there is something that I just don't get... It seems to me that the above line should work.
