bash 3.1.17(2) I'm trying do write a shell script which must operate on each line of an ASCII text file. So, all the code must be inside a loop, and inside the loop, the first thing should be to read the next line from the file. I have the bash read command. But it reads from stdin. Any way to make read from a file?
I have two txt files containing x and y coordinates: xcoord.txt & ycoord.txt. I need to open them; read them line by line to get each coordinate; then each time I need to update Xs and Ys parameters inside another file called "dc.in" with the grabbed values.
Finally each time I need to run two exe files ( dc_2002 and st_vac) and produce corresponding output for each Xs and Ys ( dc.in is an input file for this exe files)
I have written the following code but it does not work:
I'm a bit new to Python programming and hoped that someone might be able to help with a problem I'm having. What I essentially want to do is to combine two text files line for line. I know how to do this in a bash script so to give you a better idea here's the code for that:
This is basically for adding on values to the end of a CSV file that uses ';' as the delimiter. So say file1 said:
And file2 said:
Then running this command would create merged_file1_and_file2 which would be:
The code I'm using at the moment is:
As I'm sure any experienced python programmer will see, this prints out the first line of the file "csvraw" and then all of the lines of "stamps" and then the remainder of "csvraw".
What I'd like to do is something like: (pseudo code, I know it's not python ;-))
Is this possible? I've tried googling and my Python Pocket Reference hasn't been much help. I've looked at pickling but that doesn't seem appropriate.
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)?
I am trying to write a program in C which compares two files and prints the line that is equal.
Here file1.txt has
and file2.txt has
Note: file2.txt consist of only a single string where as file2.txt has multiple lines. Actually im comparing two files with md5sum values.
Here is the code but it compares only first line of files..but it should compare the whole file1..and sorry iam a beginner in C can any1 sujest some modification to this code so that..it can compare file2 with entire file1
Was wondering if any perl guru's could help me with a quick log file adjustment. I have a text file that looks like so (tabs and newlines are revealed so you can see what separates the data):
There are maybe 100 lines of text in this file at any given time. I need to delete all duplicate lines only looking at the first bit of text prior to the first tab. It doesn't matter which one gets deleted as long as there are no two lines that begin with that same text at the beginning before the first tab. So in this example, either the fist line "1234" or the last line "1234" would need to be deleted. I already have code in my script that opens the files - I just need the code to read the text into an array and the part that would find matches based on the above criteria, and make the deletions.
If it would be easier, I can even do a system call and use SED (v4.1.5) and/or AWK (3.1.5) instead.
I'm trying to make another file annotation script a little speedier than it has been by the up-until-now proven method of checking the last four characters in a filename before the "dot" (eg .jpg, .psd) against a list of known IPTC categories and Exiv2 command files. It occurred to me that if one script generated a list of files in directory foo, and the same or another script sorted that list by that four-letter tag,then that list could be used(instead of a for/do/done loop on the real files in the folder) by the command-file-matching script to "vomit out" which annotator file would go with file nastynewfile.jpg, f'r'instance. The script I had been using for this task looks like this:
while read 'line'; do sp=$(echo $line) vc=$(echo $sp | cut -d"," -f1) cv=$(echo $sp | cut -d"," -f2)
Where I seem to be stuck is with how to sort the lines in templist, which may be any number of different lengths, from back to front. sort -k looked promising, except it seems only to work the other way round. I thought of invoking a
q=$(expr length $line); echo $q n=$[q-8]; echo $n
kind of thing, but that presented the problems of how to sort by those, how to tell sort where to find them (grep?) and how to "stitch them back in" to the original list, which is what I want to sort in the first place.
I'm extracting data from a xml file writing it to separate files then combining the results as a csv file.The problem is keeping the separate files in sync line by line.When a grep does not action I would like to put in a blank line or something to keep the lines in order.When the "<title>" is missing as in as in the first"<programme </programme>" that's where I need somethingto write to the file as dummy data to increment the line
I have two files, file1.traj and file2.traj. Both these files contain identical data and the data are arranged in same format in them. The first line of both files is a comment.
At line 7843 of both files there is a cartesian coordinate X, Y and Z ( three digits ). And at line 15685 there is another three digits. The number of lines in between two cartesian coordinates are 7841. And there are few hundreds of thousands of lines in a file.
What I need to do is copy the X Y Z coordinate (three digits) from file1.traj at line 7843 and paste into file2.traj at the same line number as in file1.traj. The next line will be 15685 from file1.traj and replace at line 15685 at file2.traj. And I dont want other lines (data) in file2.traj get altered. This sequence shall be going on until the end of the file. Means copy and substitude the selected lines from file1.traj into file2.traj.
I tried to use paste command but I cant do for specified line alone.
Here i showed the data format in the file. I used the line number for clarity purpose.
I am looking at how to add particular text to a file in bash.Here is what I am trying to do:In the /etc/grub.conf file, I am trying to add "audit=1" (without the quotes) to the end of the kernel line...such as:kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-194.el5 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet audit=1
As there are a few different lines in this file, I am only looking to add the "audit=1" to the above line via a bash script.
I have a lot a folders, each named by a number, and in each of these folders I have a specific file (stddev.dat) containing a single line (of numbers) I need to have a single file with each line being one of the stddev.dat (no matter if it is sorted or not), and also I need to add at the begining of each line the number of the folder it comes from.
I 'm no bash expert, and the "add at the begining of the line" is a bit of problem to me". Here is what I've come up with so far, just to put everything in one file, (and also if you know a better/more elegant way to do the same thing I've done, I'm listening)
I have to delete a certain line of text from the a textfile via ubuntu's shell scripting.I have done research, and it seems that most people advocate the usage of sed /d option. sed makes does not edit the text file. Hence, most options I discovered involved the use of a temporary variable/textfile and then overwriting the old file with the temporary new file. Is there anyway whereby I can bypass the use of temporary storage containers? I hope there is any magical combination of commands to edit the file directly.
I'm trying to get multiple numeric valued version information into a variable, all on the same line. I want for example $VERSION=3.1.0.01.002. I'm trying to pull seperate values from the file named version.properties, wherein the file contains;
I would like to know how do I print the line # in a script. My requirement is, I have a script which is about ~5000 lines long. If there are any errors happen I just exit. And I would like to add the line # of the script where the error happened.
