General :: Adding A Comma To The End Of Every Nth Line In Vi (or Sed)?

Oct 12, 2009

I have a fairly long list of data that I am trying to put into a math program (maple) but before I can do that I need to edit the format of the data such that at the end of every 25th line I add a comma. I would prefer a solution that uses vi, but if that's impossible sed would be fine also (or awk).

General :: Regex Escape The Comma?

Aug 12, 2010

sometimes there are one, sometime there are two exchanges in this log file. the 100= is the stock exchange- if there are two, they are seperated by a comma. i understand how to escape a comma in a regex, but I am having trouble with combining it.

35=8 39=1 38=1000 32=13 14=754 31=1.11 44=1.1 100=AMEX,ISE
35=8 39=1 38=1000 32=151 14=205 31=1.1 44=1.1 100=AMEX
35=U 39=2 38=1000 32=45 14=184 31=1.1 44=1.1 100=AMEX,ISE

General :: Output Pid's From Ps To A Comma Delimited File?

Apr 7, 2010

need to monitor pecific processes over a time frame in terms of the amount of memory and cpu usage it utilizes. I can do this using the top -p <pid> option and using ps to retrieve the pid's. However, seeing that the pid's might differ and it needs to be run on about 13 different machines, I would like to write a script for this that can be run at set intervals. My problem that I have is this:

- When running top -p <pid> I can specify a comma seperated list of the processes required to monitor at that specific time.

- I can use ps -ef | grep <process> | grep -v grep| awk '{ print $2 }' to retrive the list of pid's and output this to a file.

However, how can I output these to the file as a comma seperated list without having to manually do this every time? The reason for this is (an example), lets say I want to monitor the cpu and memory usage of postgresql as well as all its child processes, then I would ps grep for postgres and get the list of pid's for instance.This list then needs to be passed to top -p as a comma seperated list of pid's I suspect that awk or sed might have some options available for this but I do not know this well enough.

General :: Removing The Comma From A Currency Entry?

Apr 24, 2010

I have a file of the formcol1, col2, $330,000, col4 ...col1, col2, col3, col4 ..col1, col2, $230,000, col4 ...The comma within the currency value causes the column to display unevenly when I open it so I want to remove it. I think I should be able to use the sed command but I am not sure extactly how. All the values have 3 digits after the $ and before the , so have triedsed -e 's/$[0-9]*,/ but I am not sure how to 'replaced with the string found just without the comma'So two guestions:1. Is this a good way to do it?2. How do I do it

General :: Awk: Awking The Right Separator With Slashes - Colons - Commas (date Time And Data)

Jan 4, 2011

I wrote a hack script that outputs the following every so often: Code: 01/04/11 10:33:02: 97,1413,1447,2860 I must leave the data format the same --but I want a special number from it. In this case it's 97 and it's always going to be the first in the 4 columns of comma delimited items. I can extract with this:

Code: cat datafile | awk -F" " {'print $3'} | awk -F"," {'print $1'} But that's really sloppy. Can someone point out a better way of doing this (with awk) and tell me why?

I tried to find out how awk works with multiline strings. I found this. I hope it will be useful for somebody. 1. I know that awk can searches simple patterns like '/^one/'

echo $s | awk '/^one/'

2. I know that "Awk can handle multiline records by specifying the field separator to be a newline and set the record separator to an empty string." I've found it here

General :: Sed Regex To Match Words Via A Pattern

Oct 24, 2010

I have some lines of text and I want to detect words that meet some criteria with sed.

E.g. The line "tetris cat dog test cactus stereotype"

I want to detect the word that contains two (2) ore more t letters. That mean the words tetris, test and stereotype.

The following regex doesn't do the job because it can;t distinguish words very well.

I thinks I have ti incorporate something like [^ ] in the regex but I wasn't successful...

General :: Remove Words In A File Using Sed Or Any Other Command?

Nov 30, 2009

i want to remove words "Max" and "constrained" in a file given below:

Max 0.003745 constrained
Max 0.004549 constrained
Max 0.001689 constrained


and further want to replace "Max" by line number so that i can plot the resulting file. i searched in forum, but couldn't do what i wanted to do. e.g. i used

1)grep command

grep -v "Max" inputfile >outputfile

deletes whole line,and hence whole text.

2) sed command

cat inputfile |sed 's/ .{1,12} //g' >outputfile

gives output

General :: Sed - Change And Capitalize Some Letters In Words?

I'm trying to use Sed to change all "l" letters with "I" in capitalized words something like this:


- and as opposite change the all "I" with "l" in a word in small letters such as:

2. DiIbert -> Dilbert

For the first case I'm using the below sentence which unfortunately changes words such as "let" in "It"


sed 's/[:upper:]*l[:upper:]*/I/g'

For the second case the below command seems to work but it might have a side effect as the one used in the first case:


sed 's/[:lower:]*I[:lower:]*/l/g'
