General :: Output Md5 Or Sha1 Along With Fullpath And Filesize

Aug 26, 2010

I am trying to output md5 or sha1 along with fullpath/filename and file size but I dont seem to find a way to do this.



find . -printf '%s %p'

i can retrieve size and fullpath and filename

however I am not able to merge that info with the md5 or sha1 of the file

my aim is to have a file such as this

6435b607f86b6e6be1e77bb3b1987677d1377275 ./abc/asda/file1.txt 404
6435b607f86b6e6be1e77bb3b987677d13772725 ./abc/asda/file2.txt 1404

also, performance is an issue for me, since i need to get the info out of 10m files (approx 6TB), so commands like find are preferred and less iterations among commands would be great too.

btw i've tried to use something like this


find . -type f -printf '%s %p'| xargs awk '{x=system("md5sum "$2)}END {print x" "$2" "$1}'

but variable x contains the return value of the system command md5sum and not the stdout

General :: Downloading All Links In An XML File?

May 26, 2011

I am, as the forum title suggests, new to linux and to programming and having trouble figuring out how to do this.I have a very large XML file with a lot of information in it. I'm trying to get a single tag out of the file, each of these tags contains a single web link and I want to download the file at every single one of those links. I really don't know how to do this.My thought, though its probably not the most efficient or correct way, was to use VIM to search the document and somehow extract all of this one particular tag and then use wget on the links.

General :: Downloading A RAR File From Mediafire Using WGET

Jul 19, 2011

Example: [url]

This was what I tried...wget -A rar [-r [-l 1]] <mediafireurl>

That is to say, I tried with and without the recursive option. It ends up downloading an HTML page of a few KB in size, while what I want is in the range 90-100 MB and RAR.

What happens with MediaFire for those who may not be aware, is that it first says

Processing Download Request...

This text after a second or so turns into the download link and reads

Click here to start download..

How to write a proper script for this situation.

General :: Configure RTorrent To Stop Downloading After Certain File Size

Aug 26, 2010

I am looking for a way to configure rTorrent to stop downloading all torrents after they have downloaded x amount. For example, specify 15mb and as soon as the torrent reaches that size have it finish downloading the pieces it has requested and then start seeding partially completed. The reason for this is I'm trying to come up with a way to build ratio on a site where torrents are added very fast and at a very high frequency.

I download and add the torrents to rTorrent automatically via RSS, but I only want to download a small amount and seed that small piece while there are still a lot of people in the swarm (swarm drops off very quickly) and come out with a positive ratio from that small piece, beating the ratio clock so to speak. I thought it would be an interesting all be it somewhat impractical exercise in shell scripting, if rTorrent can be hooked into like that, documentation is sparse in some areas.

General :: Curl -K Command Outputs Weird Symbols Instead Of Downloading URL From File?

May 16, 2011

I'm on Ubuntu 11.04. I have read around about how to use curl to download a list of URLs from a text file, and everyone says to use Code:curl -K URLlist.txt. This is what the curl man page says as well. However, for even a simple file with one URL, this command outputs a bunch of weird symbols for me instead of downloading the file.For example, I have a text file "test.txt" with one line in the following format:

url = ""
I use the curl command to download this file:

Ubuntu :: Downloaded The Demo Of Penumbra Overture, It Is A .sh File (113Mb) Can't Open The File?

Jun 2, 2010

I downloaded the demo of Penumbra Overture, it is a .sh file (113Mb). I can't open the file. In a terminal I ran chmod +x and then sudo ./ and I get an error "./ 2: Syntax error: "(" unexpected" . The quotation marks are my own. Is the file corrupted? One of my lugmates thinks it might be a shar file, but Karmic says that it is a shell script. Another friend says that it is too large to be a shell script. Here is the code:

john@john-laptop:~$ cd /home/john/00
john@john-laptop:~/00$ chmod +x
john@john-laptop:~/00$ sudo ./

Ubuntu :: Downloading A Part Of A File?

Nov 2, 2010

I know that the question could sound weird but...I was wondering if is possible to download one or more parts of a file.

For example, the first 10 mb, or the latter ones.

I know that there are some apps that let you do segmented downloads, but, is there anyone that let you choose the segment to be downloaded? If not, can this be accomplished with any linux command-line application?

Fedora Networking :: Find Out What File Is Being Downloaded From What IP?

Jul 24, 2011

I've got something or someone downloading from me, probably scraping, and i can't figure out WHAT is using all of my bandwidth, and WHERE it's coming from.I don't know what SERVICE its from (eg, is this an apache request, or DNS DOS), what FILES are being accessed (if any, eg apache requests/scrape), and what IP is requesting them.My apache logs isn't showing anything that makes me thing i'm being scrapped. I'm kinda stuck in a brain fart right now and can't remember how to track this down, but the long and short is that all of my band width is being consumed, and 1 of my CPU cores is staying maxed out ("top" says that it's the avahi service).I've shut off the following services 1 by 1 to see if any of them would cause a drop in network usage, and none of them did:

OpenSUSE :: PHP File Gets Downloaded When Browse In Any Of Browser?

Jul 3, 2011

I followed the following step given on an openSuSE site but I am still encountering the same problem i.e. a phpinfo.php file gets downloaded when I browse it in my browser.In case the browser wants to save your php files instead of displaying the content, you should enable php support in the /etc/apache2/mod_userdir.conf file. Add the following line to it, just after the <Directory /home/*/public_html> line and restart the server.Include /etc/apache2/conf.d/php5.conf
