Programming :: Command For Find/Replace In Text Files (inc. Files In Sub-folders)?

Oct 11, 2010

I found this command that works great finding and replacing a simple string to another in files located in that folder and all sub-folders.

Code: find . -name '*.php' | xargs perl -pi -e 's/OldText/NewText/g'

The problem I have is that I need to replace a more complex string, like this: Old string: /mnt/stor6-wc2-dfw1/627896/982574/ New string: /mnt/stor8-wc2-dfw1/369587/302589/ There I don't know how to do it... since the / is what separates the old from the new strings, and the strings that I want to replace have / in it. Also, I would like to know how to specify under what folder replace the files, for example, I want that it search/replaces all files under /var/www/mysite/htdocs folder.

Ubuntu :: Find Command Does Not Find All Files?

Aug 9, 2011

The find command does not seem to find all files in my directory hierarchy. My home directory is automounted from a server. The command to illustrate this is:find | sed -e 's/^.///' | sed -e 's//.*//' | sort -uThe result misses several directories. Likewise, a find of a particular file, like:find . -iname *sample* -printwhere sample_file.txt resides in one of the directories that is missing in the first find command, finds nothing

Programming :: Applying Group Ideology To Web Applications?

Dec 2, 2010

I have built a database driven web application that has a user and group system that works in a similiar way that Linux handles user access. Breif explanation: A users can access various resources, the resources are assigned to a single group and users can have many groups.

Users

Code:

id name
-- -------
1 RedRanger
2 GreenRanger
3 BlueRanger

[code]....

Lets say that RedRanger needs to be denied access to resource a if I remove him from group 33 he can no longer access b or c which is no good. The only alternative is to change a's group and add everyone else to the new group, this isn't so bad for 3 users, but what about 3,000?

Programming :: Applying Configuration To Serial Port - Strict Termios

Dec 28, 2010

I'm using the serial port of a device to communicate with a hardware. (that can assume some different configurations of baud rate, data bits, etc.) Well, I can obtain that configuration, but I'm not certain in how to apply them to the serial. I'm using the struct termios to do that. I did some search, and found how to configure the baud rate and data bits. I'm doing this:

how I set the stop bits (1, 1.5 or 2 bits), the parity (even, odd, none, mark or space) and the flow control (hardware, software, none or xon/xoff)?

Programming :: Can't Find Command, But Program Is Installed?

May 14, 2010

WindowsDude is back on the dark side of the web, the linux world, and he has encountered yet another impassable problem !There's a compiler mpicc, probably installed on the network at some location let's say /network/bin So when I write mpicc main.c I get the "can't find command" (or similar) error. Somehow it's supposed to work anyway. I think I need one of those magic commands to make it work. But the question is; which word will make it all happen? (I thought the DOS days were over!) I guess I could use the full path (provided that that binary really is in that folder), I want to bind that executable at that location to the much shorter mpicc.

Ubuntu :: Command Line - Find And Replace Text Within Multiple Files?

Aug 28, 2010

I'm pretty sure this is doable from the command line, but my CLI skills have degraded a lot since my pre-Y2K admin days. The goal is to search all the files in the directory for a very long string of text and replace it with another string of text. The text being searched for is my Google Adsense code (which will be stripped from my website) and it will be replaced with a placeholder so I can easily tack something else in there in the future.

Seeing how I have that long snip of code on about 100 pages, automating the process would make life easier.
If I was searching for a single word, I can see ways to do this.
If I paste the code I'm searching for into a text file, is there a way to:
find (contents of oldstring.txt) and replace with (contents of newstring.txt)?
