General :: Searching Content Of The File Using File Browser Nautilus?

May 27, 2011

I'm using rhel6. Using File Browser Nautilus 2.28.4 I could easily locate any file I'm interested in by it name. I'd like to use this File Browser to locate the file name based on it content e.g. based on some word in the text file. It doesn't work for me that way ... My question: does Nautilus support the search of file based on it content or only based on the name of the file itself?

General :: Use Gedit To Open File With Null Characters?

Feb 15, 2011

I know GEdit has a bug which prevents it from opening a file with null () characters in it. This is a huge inconvenience for me because I frequently have to open big log files with only a couple rogue 's in them.

Sometimes I just run a quick tr -d '' < file.log > file.log.correct and open the correct file. This is a big nuisance. I would like to have maybe an external tool in GEdit that would execute the above command. I tried writing an external tool action (GEdit plugin) using just:

#!/bin/bash
tr -d ''

Input is "current document", output action is "replace current document". But this isn't working. When I open the file, GEdit shows the familiar red warning; activating the external tool with the warning showing apparently has no effect (I think the script is being called but its input/output are not set).

General :: Closing File While Leaving Instance Of Gedit Open

Apr 19, 2011

If a file is opened from the common prompt with something like:
gedit somefile &
Is there a way to close somefile while leaving the instance of gedit still open? My idea is that sometimes I will have more than one file open in gedit. I run a script daily that updates to a log file. The log file is then opened and viewed with gedit.

General :: Filter Find And Du By Content Of Inner File In Subdirectory?

May 30, 2010

I have the following command that I run on cygwin:

find /cygdrive/d/tmp/* -maxdepth 0 -mtime -150 -type d | xargs du --max-depth=0 > foldersizesreport.csv

I intended to do the following with this command: for each folder under /d/tmp/ that was modified in last 150 days, check its total size including files within it and report it to file foldersizesreport.csv however that is now not good enough for me, as it turns out inside each

/d/tmp/subfolder1/somefile.properties
/d/tmp/subfolder2/somefile.properties
/d/tmp/subfolder3/somefile.properties
/d/tmp/subfolder4/somefile.properties

so as you see inside each subfolderX there is a file named somefile.properties inside it there is a property SOMEPROPKEY=3808612800100 (among other properties) this is the time in millisecond, i need to change the command so that instead of -mtime -150 it will include in the whole calculation only subfolderX that has a file inside them somefile.properties where the SOMEPROPKEY=3808612800100 is the time in millisecond in future, if the value SOMEPROPKEY=23948948 is in past then dont at all include the folderin the foldersizesreport.csv because its not relevant to me.so the result report should be looking like:

/d/tmp/,subfolder1,<itssizein KB>
/d/tmp/,subfolder2,<itssizein KB>

and if subfolder3 had a SOMEPROPKEY=34243234 (time in ms in past) then it would not be in that csv file.so basically I'm looking for:

find /cygdrive/d/tmp/* -maxdepth 0 -mtime -150 -type d | <only subfolders that have in them property in file SOMEPROPKEY=28374874827 - time in ms in future and not in past | xargs du --max-depth=0 > foldersizesreport.csv

General :: Reboot Not Required After Changing HOSTS File Content?

Oct 18, 2010

I was having a discussion with someone who asked me whether a Linux OS has to be rebooted when the hosts file is modified. From personal experience, on Windows I change the file but don't reboot and I've seen others do the same thing. I assume Linux has no exception(s), but is there any reason why a reboot is not required (to at least justify my actions)?

Programming :: Script To Copy Paste Text From One File To Another (overwriting Part Of The File)?

Apr 19, 2011

I have a .txt-file with ~50.000 lines of numbers, generated by a mathematics program. From this file, I need line ~ 1.100 to line ~16.000 (these lines are always the same btw, this may make the solution easier, dunno) to be copy/pasted to another file, where the lines ~500 to ~15.000 (also, every time the same) should be overwritten by the aforementioned lines...I haven't found or come up with anything that works yet, mostly I find solutions to copy everything from one file to another but I can't find something to specifically overwrite a part of a file with part of another.

Programming :: Sed - Save Output To File With Filename From Content Of Another File?

Feb 28, 2011

My employer issues pdf files with everyones work schedules. I copy the content and save it as plain text in a file called unformatted (hope to be able to automate this step someday). Im working on a SED script that reduces unformatted to only display what I want to see and saves the result in a file Ive named formatted. After that I have to manually copy formatted and save it with that days date as a filename e.g. 2011-02-25 or whatever day is scheduled in the pdf, for use on a mobile device (Nokia N900). I noticed that the date occurs on certain lines in the file so I added a line like:

sed -n 's/^Date: (201[1-9])/([0-1][0-9])/([0-3][0-9]).*/1-2-3/p' < unformatted >theDate
That creates a file theDate with the date in it that I wish to use as the filename for this particular instance. So I would like to skip the file formatted all together and have the sed- script write to a new file using the content of the Date as a filename, but how do I make that happen? And of course it would be more elegant if I could skip the intermediate theDate file as well.
