got the same thing in terms of a u: number but the issue is I need to remove duplicates and just leave one and the file has multiple duplicates of different u: numbers and it's 14,000 lines long. can anyone tell me if I can use awk? sed? or sort for something like this to? removing lines that have a certain string in there that's a duplicate.
Contained within each of these 67 text files is about 1 million urls. Yes. I have 67 text files that contain 1 million lines of urls each. I am sure I am swimming in duplicates. I tried opening one text file and clicking sort ----->remove duplicates. Now Gedit is not responding my processor is maxed out to 100% and I think I am finally ready to delve into some command line code. Can anyone give me idiot proof instructions on how to sort the duplicates out of each one of these 67 text files? How about no duplicates across all 67?
i have a big file of random numbers i generated at some point in time, after working with it with different things(how fun that was)... i want to remove duplicate lines and i'm not sure i'm doing this right
I am basically trying to remove duplicate words in my <title></title> tag after I got hit by Google Panda. I have around 750 .html files and it will be difficult for to me remove one by one. I am looking for a way to remove only from within <title> </title>
Example of a duplicate title I have:
<title>Pasta, Pasta Recipe and Pasta Guide</title>
I dont want to replace those words anywhere else in the file except for within the <title>
This should be simple but I can't seem to find what I am looking for.I want to search a text file for the existence of certain strings and execute a command if they exist, something along the lines of:
if <string> exists command or
if <any member of this list exists> command
I know how to manually search a file with grep, cat, etc., but the "if this exists" part eludes me.
I have a text file with many pairs of number, one pair in each line. Each 25 of these pairs are a solution to a math problem I've been working on, and each solution is separated from another by a line with "**********".The problem is that there are duplicate solutions. In order to know exactly how many solutions I found, I have to delete the duplicate ones. How can I do that?Just to make things clear, here are the first three solutions:
I need to insert 3-4 lines of text to the beginning of a text file. The file is a largish MYSQL dump, the result of a backup shell script. This shell script should insert the required text.I've wrestled with sed, but lost.
Something very handy to do in a Linux shell, is manipulating files and strings - essentially parsing data. Write a utility which will scan in a text file and search and replace strings. We also want to keep track of how many strings we've replaced.
I know that my command would look like this: <utility name> <filename> <stringToSearchFor> <stringToReplaceWith> Code: #!/bin/bash
I have a text file that is filled with references to duplicate files. I'm trying to create a text file for each duplicate file found that contains the paths to the duplicates. I would also like the text file names to be based on the size and file name.
I have some big files of logs that contain errors printed by an app. They are most of the time relevant, however most of them are similar. So i figured i could check what happened between a time interval with a find.
Im using this one
And I get an output similar to this one.
Is there a way to condensate the output lines to get only one or two, indicating the start and last occurrence of a block? Or I need to create a program to do so?
Because right now I get thousands of similar lines, but when I'm scrolling through them i sometimes miss relevant information that i would've otherwise noted if it wasn't all that spammy.
Long story short, I got a folder with nearly 800,000 php files. I would like to search each file for a string and if it exists in that file, the file gets copied to another directory. Is this possible from the terminal? So far I got: grep -i -n -r 'ppr-1792' * | cp $1 move_to_here
But this obviously doesn't work. $1 needs to be the file name that contains matching text.
In String1 and String2 the substrings are separted by commas. The substrings which are common between String1 and String2 are ABC,DEF this common substrings has to be written to a file say common.txt ( having the text ABC,DEF). And the substrings GHI,JKL in String1 which are not present in String2 has to be written to another file say String1Extra.txt (having the text GHI,JKL). In the same way the substrings MNO,XYZ from String2 which are not present in String1 has to be written to another file say String2Extras.txt(having the text MNO,XYZ) .
