General :: Execute Command Inside First Directory Of Each Matched Result?

Aug 8, 2011

I am working at a client who has a project where code is a mixture of different source control systems. So a layout might be like this


So I am trying to put together a simple command that when executed from the project folder will run the appropriate hg/svn command in each project i.e:


Since the client has many such projects, Instead I am looking for a solution similar to find -exec where the svn/hg commands are automatically executed on each first level of match (i.e. svn up is run in the project/a folder but not in project/a/subfolder). How can such a command be constructed ?.

General :: Using The Expect And Send To Execute List Of Commands Inside A File?

Feb 2, 2011

i am working on some kind of PBX and i have list of telephone numbers inside a file, i have to insert these numbers into the correct command and then telnet to a remote server and execute these commands. i can read the telephone numbers and insert them into the command with no problem, but when i try to insert these commands into the send i face problem. here is the basic code

read msisdn < input


i can make external loop inside the Bash which read the input file and issue the command and then telnet and execute, but this will make the script connects and disconnects again for each line which cause high load on that server and hardwar problem. i am wondering if there is an option inside the expect interperter which makes the send read directly from a file... somthing like this:

expect "<"
send "input-filename
expect "<"
expect eof

General :: BASH Script Will Not Get Use Result Of Command When Run As Cron Job?

Jul 1, 2011

I am frustrated by running a script on the Fedora 14 computer as a cron job. I paste the code:


#a backup script to copy data from sda to sdc
ROOTVOL=`blkid -U ea210a08-6212-4dc8-be1c-23fce3b965bc`


So when I run this as root, for example:


# /root/myscript

the result is what I expect:


Jul 1 13:41:16 svn root: ADMIN: Executing backup-svn
Jul 1 13:41:16 svn root: using blkid ea210a08-6212-4dc8-be1c-23fce3b965bc as /dev/mapper/vg_svn_backup-lv_root

General :: Run Command As Root Inside Script?

Sep 4, 2009

I am running a shell script using a non root user. Somewhere down in the script, I'll have to call some script to be executed as su (or a user with more privileges than the one running the original script). So if i put a line in the script as:


su - root -c /root/roleScripts/

Then when running the command, it will prompt me for root password(because the current user has lower privileges than the user requested. Suppose I want to pass this password as an argument to the original script, so that it doesn't prompt me for password later on, what is the way? Can I switch user passing the password and run a command?

General :: Directory Execute Permission

Apr 24, 2010

General :: Using Shortcuts/alias Inside A Bash Command?

Jan 28, 2010

I know that using alias I can run a whole command with a shortcut. But my requirement is to use parts of a long command and in between I have to pass some user defined values.
E.g. Suppose I have to routinely copy a directory to another remote directory on a remote machine.The remote machine name is quite long as well as the directory path to which I want to copy the files into.So the command to do scp would look like this[URL]Now I want to do some sort of aliasing (say "ecp") so that I just need to pass the source_directory name and the ecp command and do my job

General :: Function Having Background Process Inside Command Substitution

Oct 5, 2010

The first call to "somefunction" works as expected. The function prints "endfunction" and a process in background sleeps 30 seconds. In the second call I thought it should work in the same way, but the script sleeps 30 seconds before it prints "endfunction".Does someone know the reason of this behavior? Is there another way to do a command substitution of a function that has a background process without have to waiting for that process?

General :: Execute A Command Whenever A File Changes?

Aug 27, 2010

I want a quick and simple way to execute a command whenever a file changes. I want something very simple, something I will leave running on a terminal and close it whenever I'm finished working with that file. Currently, I'm using this: while read; do ./ ; done And then I need to go to that terminal and press Enter, whenever I save that file on my editor. What I want is something like this: while sleep_until_file_has_changed ; do ./ ; done

Or any other solution as easy as that. BTW: I'm using Vim, and I know I can add an autocommand to run something on BufWrite, but this is not the kind of solution I want now. Update: I want something simple, discardable if possible. What's more, I want something to run in a terminal because I want to see the program output (I want to see error messages).

General :: Execute A Command After Sudo?

May 4, 2011

I am working in a CentOS environment with numerous CentOS machines. Currently there are multiple developers that each have their own login/home directory and then for various admin tasks we all share a single super user account.

The problem

I have a number of aliases, variables, functions, and settings that exist in my personal login's .bash_profile. None of these are available in the shared super user's .bash_profile. My current work around is that everytime I sudo in as the super user and I re-execute my .bash_profile from my personal user's home directory. I am not allowed to edit the init stuff for the super user

The Question

Is there any way I can automate my sudo sequence such that it will execute my personal .bash_profile after I've executed sudo without requiring me to edit the super user's bash init stuff?
