Software :: Command Line: Chown Command Recursively On Invisible Directories?

Oct 25, 2010

I tried

Code:

chown -R owner:group *

which does not work on the invisible directories (why?). When I used ".*" as wildcard it changed all (visible) files including the parent directory (the one I was currently working in which is the "dot") . I can change the invisible directories owner and group using dophin but how is it done from the command line?

General :: Bash - Compressing Files Despite Low Disk Space?

Jul 18, 2011

I use Linux. I coded a screenshot program some time ago and now I have 9 GIG of screenshots, 60000 JPEGs, most of them look pretty similar, and I have 300 MB of disk space remaining.

What are some good ways to start to compress batches of them (or all of them) in the background given the limited space? The problem with compressing the folder all at once is that I wouldn't have enough disk space for that. It seems the process needs to be broken down into chunks. So maybe something like: Get a list of all the files Add a chunk of the files (say, 20) to a compressed archive. Once it is done and saved successfully, delete the chunk of files

General :: Joining Two Files From The Command Line?

Oct 21, 2010

I'm looking for a solution for the following simple problem. I have two files, fileA and fileB. Each file contains only one word per line, and they contain exactly the same number of lines. I would like to create a new file called fileAB, where the i-th line contains the i-th line of fileA, a Tab separator character, and then the i-th line of fileB. I know how to do it in Python or other scripting languages, but it would be nice to have a bash one-liner for that. Is it possible to do this in bash or any other Unix shell, using the tools that are usually available on the command line (e.g., sed, awk and such)?

General :: Delete Files On The Command Line With Regular Expressions?

May 6, 2010

Lets say I have 20 files named FOOXX, where XX is the number of the file, eg 01, 02 etc. At the moment, if I want to delete all files lower than the number 10, this is easy and I just use a wildcard, eg rm FOO0* However, if I want to delete specific files ina range, eg 13-15, this becomes more difficult. rm FPP[13-15] does not work, and asks me if I wish to delete all files. Likewse rm FOO1[3-5] wishes to delete all files that begin with FOO1 So, what is the best way to delete ranges of files like this? I have tried with both bash and zsh, and I don't think they differ so much for such a basic task?

I have tried several things, such as:

General :: Recursively Count All The Files In A Directory?

Oct 12, 2010

I have a really deep directory tree on my Linux box. I would like to count all of the files in that path, including all of the subdirectories.

For instance, given this directory tree:

/home/blue
/home/red
/home/dir/green
/home/dir/yellow
/home/otherDir/

If I pass in /home, I would like for it to return 4 files. Or, bonus points if it returns 4 files, 2 directories. Basically, I want the equivalent of right-clicking a folder on Windows and selecting properties and seeing how many files/folders are contained in that folder.

How can I most easily do this? I have a solution involving a Python script I wrote, but why isn't this as easy as running ls | wc or similar?

General :: List Contents Of All Files Recursively?

Jan 22, 2011

What I would like to do is to print the contents of all text files in a particular directory, recursively. Problem being that there are directories and possibly binaries scattered around in the filesystem as well.

Trying cat * works as long as there are no directories in there, but when there are it gives an error instead and prints nothing.

I'm sure it's easy using file -f or something but I can't figure it!

General :: Script To Rename Files Recursively?

May 8, 2011

I'm planning to writing a script to rename files recursively.

To be said that I'm using /bin/sh (not /bin/bash) as this is the only shell available on the busybox of the linux router (tomato) I'm using.

Basically I would like to rename files with extension .jpg using as a suffix the filename of another file in the very same directory with extension .avi

The reason for this is because pretty much all the DLNA devices like modern TV playing .avi files will display a thumbnail of the video when browsing the filesystem, however to do so they'll need .jpg image wit hthe same filename of the video in the very same directory.

General :: Recursively Searching PHP Or HTML Files

May 5, 2010

I'm a frequent user of grep. I know that I can recursively search a directory using the -r flag:
Code:
// will recursively search all files
grep -r 'some string' *

However, if I want to limit my search to PHP files, the -r flag is suddenly useless:
Code:
// for some reason, this only searches the PHP files in the current dir
grep -r 'some string' *.php

Any good way to recursively search a directory and its subdirs for a string but ONLY look at PHP or HTML files (and possibly TXT files too) ? I'm really hoping for a nice, short command that doesn't involve using an exclude file and which isn't really painful to type. I do this kind of search very frequently and have resorted to either searching EVERY file which is really slow (TAR and ZIP files really slow it down) OR typing repeated commands to search *.php, */*.php, etc.

Ubuntu :: Command Line To Copy Files From One Location To Another / Retain Source Files Group / User?

Feb 20, 2011

Is there a method at the command line to copy files from one location to another and retain the source files group and user?I'm migrating some MySQL files from one machine to another.I want to back-up the original files in the directory presently. They have owner:group of mysql, some have owner:group root:mysql and so on. To copy them under cli or Nautilus everything changes to root for I execute sudo cp or gksudo nautilus and copy via gui.

Since it is MySQL data I could simply do a dump of the database and restore it on the other machine. But there's about 20 db's and I want to do this via a copy for it will be faster - at least that is what I think.
