General :: Command Line - Trying To Cleanse Log Files On A Machine - Currently Using Sed

Feb 21, 2011

I have a large amount of log files that I need to remove sensitive data from. The sensitive data is provided to me in a text file and is prone to change. I had hoped to do the equivalent of this:

[Code]....

The commented out egrep works fine, the sed doesn't. Am I right to use sed for this? Or is there a more apt route to take?

General :: Focus On Command Line Machine System, Network Basics, And File Management Knowledge?

Feb 17, 2011

As a strategy for learning linux I have decided to adopt using a lean windows based approach. I want to focus on command line machine system, network basics, and file management knowledge. In other words find out how desktop manager does it's business, so I know how to master my machine, but by and large once I have made my choices, leave it alone to do just that.

I figure I should know how applications are internally configured etc., but I also figure an apps GUI and config choices should take care of installations, and program usage as in M$ windows. Surely taking care of an applications dependencies are the responsibility of the developer, are they not?

I am working my way through "Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition (Version 1.0.0)" right now for an overall viewpoint. Can anyone suggest a specific source for a point by point explanation of the command basis of a generalised "desktop management" application (KDE,LXDE)? Better yet would be if it had some parallel comparison of the varied approaches taken by different distributions of linux.

A secondary question, is that allowed? Up to a certain point in Ms windows, a thorough knowledge of DOS 6.xx would theoreticaly enable one to more or less duplicate the actions of the windows overlay. Is there a basic distribution (or subset in all of them maybe?) of linux that would be consistent with that paradigm? What would be analogous to DOS batch files, or GM-Basic? Oh! that's 3.I am certainly appreciating the depth of this forum, and the breadth of knowledge among you forumite's. Reading it is time well spent.

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?

General :: Transform A File On 1st Machine With A Tool On 2nd Machine In One Line Over Ssh?

Jul 14, 2011

I have some file tools on a mint machine that I would rather not install on my mac laptop. Mainly because of the vastness of apt-get and the low risk of installation failure. Anyway, every so often I have a file that I want to process in place using some remote tool. Both machines can ssh right in to each other so I was figuring there must be some script or tool out there that would allow me to type out something like remote [file] [tool & args] to send my file to the other machine, get it processed, then get it back.

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.

Ubuntu :: Rescuing Files By Command Line Only?

How can I get the data files off this machine, eg by copying them to a usb stick, or maybe by copying them to the Windows partition (which still works OK)?
