am trying to write a shell script to find the size of a particular log file and if the log size grows, script should mail the changes to the administrator or a any user so script should monitor the log file continuously in a time interval, how can i do that?
I tried with these codes to find the file size but it throws me error says command not found

I created a VM disk image with kvm-img, but I forget what was the max size of that disk image when I created it. Currently, its size is 6.2G, I want to install some large packages in that VM, so I want to make sure the disk image can expand to an adequate size.
I'm relatively experienced with UNIX and Linux, but this has me thrown for quite a loop, and it seemed like such a simple question. How would I go about finding the newest file in a file system? I thought something like:
ls -ltr `find /usr -type f`
would work, but I seem to be exceeding the argument maximum for ls:
ksh: 0403-029 There is not enough memory available now
I thought something involving xargs might work, but I really suck with that command.
I have a file that's supposed to be growing in size 24/7. I want to check every 10 minutes via cron that it's actually growing. If not, send an email. Does anyone know how to write a script to do that?

I made an account under freeshell.org and it has been very satisfactory so far. I recommend everyone getting an account under freeshell.org. But anyways, how do I find files over, for example, 500 KB, in the entire, my shell account?
I was just testing specifying limit on file size to a user and have added the following to /etc/security/limits.conf bob soft fsize 100 This basically should have said not to allow bob to create anyfile greater than 100Kb in size.
But the interesting thing is, if bob already has any file which is greater than 100Kb in size, it even doesn't allow to log him into the system both from console and SSH. Also nothing is logged in logs.. How do I configure it so that, bob can login to the system even though he has any file greater than 100Kb (but doesn't allow him to create file which are greater than 100Kb) ??
I was trying to find a shell script that will encode video to a an iso that I can burn for a dvd. It seems I have lost a few of my dvds and I backed them up into mkv and I need to convert it to pal so it will work until I find them. My search was leading to other formats, but I was wanting to use pal because it is smaller. My search lead me here, but this shell script is not in pal.I need a solution that would work with slackware.
I need a shell script that will add the users name and date to a file when the user has modified the file, these files are within a group and only accessible to this group. But we need a way for people in the group to know who and when the file was last modified.
I have a Canoscan LiDE 30 scanner which works fine in Linux. I haven't used it in months, and never since moving from Jaunty x86_64 to Fedora 11 x86_64. This evening I suddenly need to scan two pages to send to someone via e-mail, and the recipient is desperate to receive them. Naturally, Xsane has decided this is the moment to screw me.
The problem: I cannot figure out how to tell Xsane that the page size is 8.5 11. It insists on scanning only the left side, 3.99 x 11. I cannot find a page size anywhere in any of the buttons.
In Preview I once got it to scan the entire page, but could not figure out how to save the image to file. Subsequently I have not been able to figure out how I did it. In any event, scanning from the small main window always scans 3.99 x 11. Adjusting the scan area manually in the Preview window allows me to change the size area in the small main window to 8.5 x 11, but when I then scan from the small main window it reverts to 3.99 x 11.
I have scanned the document a hundred times at least, each time trying different buttons, but nothing has succeeded in getting the full page.
I wrote a small script that gets me the list of enabled system accounts in my system.
I figure '*' & '!' (in field #2 of /etc/shadow) mean that the account is disabled or they cannot login, hence 'safe-to-ignore'
Code: IFS=$' ' for i in `cat /etc/passwd` #get each line in the passwd file do var1=`echo $i | cut -d':' -f3` #get user ID field if [ $var1 -lt 500 ] && [ $var1 -gt 0 ] #compare to extract relevant IDs
BTW i figure the following command gives me the list of system users, but i am not able to find a way to process it further... :-(
