General :: Syntax For Find On Mac OS X

Mar 10, 2010

I have a project directory that contains source code and subdirectories of source code. I want to use the Unix program find to search recursively for the names of files of certain extensions. The versions of find on Linux and Mac OS X behave differently.

# Works in Linux
find . -type f -regex ".*.(py|html)$"
# Neither of these works in Mac OS X
find . -type f -regex ".*.(py|html)$"
find . -type f -regex ".*.(py|html)$"

How do I write this command so that it will run on Mac OS X (and hopefully on Linux too)?

General :: SUSE 10 Syslog-ng Syntax - Bash: Syntax Error Near Unexpected Token "("

Apr 20, 2011

I am a Novell (now defunct) CNE tring to learn Linux and am having a lot of trouble finding out where the WB 6-6 is wrong in the syntax for adding local4... the the syslog-ng config file. In the instructions there are discrepancies between commas and simi-comma, they are both in the statements in no particular order. there is no pattern to them. Here is what the book shows:

filter f_local4debug { level(debug) and facility(local4); };

When I try to input this in the Gnome terminal window to try and find out where it goes wrong I get the following: -bash: syntax error near unexpected token "(" If I can get the correct syntax I belive I can use the info to get past the rest of this portion of the lesson. I am desperate to learn Linux as the only jobs out there for a Novell CNE are migrations to MS, which really sucks, since MS really really sucks.

Programming :: Find Syntax Exclude Certain Extensions And Filter By Age

May 26, 2010

I'm trying to find all the files in a specified directory that do NOT end in .archived or .error and are older than 30 mins. Currently I have: Code: find /opt/edi/incoming -type f ! ( -name "*.archived" -name "*.error" ) -cmin 30 But I keep returning files that end in those extensions and I'm not sure if I'm using -cmin correcty? If there is a better way to do this (perl, etc) I'm open to options, this is for a nagios check.

General :: Reverse DNS Lookup From A File?

Oct 4, 2009

I have a file consisting of unique IP addresses - one per line I want to find the name of the host for each address. I tried the following:


nslookup < file_name

This worked except it gives me a lot of extraneous information such as the servers providing the answers. This is too much information for me and would simply like each line of IP numbers to be replaced with a domain name. I tried using the same strategy using host and hostname and dig but I must have given the wrong command as I had no results.

General :: Video Streaming Using Apache Reverse Proxy?

Jun 21, 2011

I have a question regarding the possibility of streaming video using an Apache web server configured as a reverse proxy. Suppose I have a local web server and areverse proxy that is abroad. I want users that are nearer the reverse proxy to be served by it and not my local web server. I know in general how to configure this and there is a lot of documentation. But can it be configured to support video file streaming without saving all the media content in the reverse proxy disk?

General :: A Point In Syntax In GNU Programs?

Jun 18, 2011

For some commands the command synopsis (syntax) is given like this:

command [a|b] [args ...]

I take mplayer (perhaps not GNU) to illustrate the point:

mplayer [cdda|cddb]://track[-endtrack][:speed][/device] [options]
mplayer [dvd|dvdnav]://[title|[start_title]-end_title] [options]

An item inside square brackets is optional. The pipe sign is the 'or' logical connective (disjunction). But then, what is [cdda|cddb]?
If optional, I can omit it: it makes no sense because there are more the one possible synopsis for the command line.

General :: Configure The Prompt But Don't Know What The Syntax Is Specifically Doing?

Oct 20, 2010

The following line is in the /etc/bashrc file. It's fedora 8. I know this is meant to configure the prompt but I don't know what the syntax is specifically doing.PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "33]0;${USER}@${HOSTNAME%%.*}:${PWD/#$HOME/~}07"'I think that 33 is the ASCII character for ESC but not sure what ]0 does or anything after the HOSTNAME variable. Are these xterm control characters? All of my Google search results fail to explain it in any kind of meaningful detail.
