Write a script that will take a list of filenames as arguments and output a count of how many of them are regular files, and how many of them are scripts (if the file is executable, it will be assumed to be a script file)
This is the following exercise:Adapt this to write a script storedList that takes two command line parameters. The first parameter is the name of a directory, the second parameter is the name of a directory should be store i.e# ./storeList.sh /etc etcFilesListHow can you refer to the variables that represent the words passed in on the command line?
I've written myself a linux program "program" that does something with a regular expression. I want to call the program in the bash shell and pass that regular expression as a command line argument to the program(there are also other command line arguments). A typical regular expression looks like "[abc]_[x|y]".Unfortunately the characters [, ], and | are special characters in bash. Thus, calling "program [abc]_[x|y] anotheragument" doesn't work. Is there a way to pass the expression by using some sort of escape characters or quotation marks etc.?
(Calling program "[abc]_[x|y] anotheragument" isn't working either, because it interprets the two arguments as one.)

I am new to writing shell scripts. So, please bare with me. I am currently trying to write a shell script which will read the directory path as input from user and will traverse the Dir tree to find all available audio and video files. I have tried to write as much as I could but I don't know where I am making mistake as I get some files to be audio file which are actully tar balls. On the second note there are some files which video but script shows them to be audio. And, some video files are completely skipped. I am giving the shell script below so that you can see. I am using two external files as source which I am attaching.
#!/bin/bash #Let's load the extensions that we want to search for vdExt=$(cat vdExtList) adExt=$(cat adExtList)
I want to know how to get eg. the contents of a form on a webpage which has been passed to a server side PHP script, inside for example an array which I can read. I've been reading a ebook on PHP which as far as I can see doesn't cover this inside it.
I am having trouble trying to get the kernel to accept some command line arguments for parport_pc during bootup. I have a custom base board with a PC-104 CPU board connected to it through the ISA bus. On the base board I have 3 parallel ports mapped to addresses, 0x150, 0x158, and 0x160. Only the first one needs interrupts, the second two do not. So, on bootup I load the parport_pc module like this modprobe parport_pc io=0x150,0x158,0x160 irq=3,none,none I have been running an older RedHat kernel, 2.6.11 for the past few years and this has been working flawlessly. I had the above modprobe call in /etc/rc.d/rc.local.
Now I am trying to set the system up to use CentOS 5.5, kernel 2.6.18-194.el5. What happens is, the module inserts OK, but the system never recognizes the ports. (i.e, they do not show up in /proc/ioports) But, if I log into the system, then rmmod parport_pc, then re-modprobe it as above, it works just fine and now my ports are visible. This is an embedded system, expected to just come up and run, so kicking it into action by hand is not an option.
I have tried putting a parport_pc.modules file in /etc/sysconfig/modules so that it will be seen by rc.sysinit, (some site I found while googling said modprobes need to be done earlier than in rc.local),and again, the module gets inserted but the ports are not seen. I have also tried putting rediculously long pauses between each step of the modprobing of the parport stuff;
I have a linux system connected to an external sensor device that spits out strings of serial data every few seconds. I need to send the data to a remote URL for logging and graphing purposes.
The data coming down the serial is essentially in the format:
And I need to call a URL from my linus box in the format
wget -s [url]
I can read the data to the shell using cat </dev/ttyS0 but I'm now stuck as to how I might then format that data and pass it to a shell script which would presumably run in an endless loop and contain the wget.
how to use QGLviewer. I want to give my program a file name as a command line argument. All of the sample programs I find have a main.cpp file like this:
#include <QApplication> #include "window.h" int main(int argc, char *argv)
Then the Window class, which is derived from QGLViewer, does all the program's actual work. If I want access to argc and argv, for example, to open and read a file that's passed as an argument, what would handle that? Is there a built-in way to get the arg variables to the window class, or do I need to just write a loadfile function and pass them?
Has anyone used rtmpdump or flvstreamer? They compile well (there is also a package on Packman for rtmpdump, but not for the latest version) and have man pages listing a bunch of command line arguments, but I have not yet figured out how to use them in connection with browser and flash plugin.
I am able to start up firefox just fine out of my terminal, but i have not been able to find any list of arguments that can be added in the command line. what i'm looking for is that it starts up in Full Screen mode right off. is there an argument that can be added to ti to do that?
I'm having problems with bash quoting. Maybe someone can tell me what's going on.. Basically, I need to create a command line inside a bash script that contains arguments that contain spaces and bash variables that need to be expanded.
I am looking for a powerful command line tool to send and receive data via socket I mean define IP , port and data other options for command to send and receive data from sender.(like a high level socket programming)
I want to write expdp output in a text file using a shell script
If i write like below:
It will write whatever is there in log file to text file
But, sometimes export fails with out start taking export (without generating log file) because of job already exists error. such times, we dont know about that error until we check manually... so i wrote like below:
But still it is not writing anything in to text file using above stmt...
I have two linux servers, they are backup together.
1. Server 1 have 3 files with name: file1, file2, file3 in the path: /etc/sysconfig/network-script/.
2. Server 2 have 3 files with name and path are the same as server 1.
- How to make a script to copy 3 files at server1 to overwrite on server2. But before overwrite, this script will check and compare the last modified date of these 3 files(on server1 and server2). if the modified date of file1, file2 or file3 on server1 is newer than 3 files on server2 then overwrite process will do, if not, will do nothing.
- see my script as below: it works find now but just overwrite. not check last modified date.
remove a line starting with specific word with grep. Here is what I found
grep -v '^cc$' data.txt
Here I remove all lines with on 'cc' in that line. But I want the result write back to data.txt
I try several ways
grep -v '^cc$' data.txt > output.txt # works but to another file echo `grep -v '^cc$' data.txt` > data.txt # didn't work, all carets gone, become one line grep -v '^cc$' data.txt > data.txt # data.txt is empty after running this
How can I save the result of grep to the input file?
