Programming :: Creating A Text Based Menu Structure In Bash?

May 15, 2009

Is it possible to create a text based menu layout in bash were it is possible to browse through. The menu list should look something like this:

----------------------------------------
user: root
colour: blue
number: 4
animal: dog
----------------------------------------

At the start the cursor should blink at the r from root so that text can be entered. When pressing the enter the cursor should go to the b from blue and so on. the imported thing is that all the text is visible also beyond the position from the cursor.

I'm having problems with compiling recursive Makefiles in my directory structure:
My folder layout is:
top/|- one/|- one.c (With main function)|- zero.c|- two/|- two.cin my top folder the make file looks like:

Code:
MAKE_DIRECTORIES = one two

all: $(MAKE_DIRECTORIES)

.PHONY: $(MAKE_DIRECTORIES)
$(MAKE_DIRECTORIES):
@echo $@
$(MAKE) --directory=$@

Programming :: Using Rsync To Copy Only Certain Folders Within A Directory Structure?

Jun 15, 2011

I am trying to create a simple bash script to rsync some folders within a directory stucture. I am using wild cards, in the rsync source directory structure, but my command always fails. I believe it is the way I am using wild cards within my for loop. Here is my command ;

Code:

for seq in `cat test.txt` ; do rsync -nvP /folder/folder/folder/folder/folder/**/$seq /folder/folder/folder/ ; done This always fails, where if I do a ls to the destination, to test the path, it always works.

Programming :: Bash Script: Sort Files Into Directory Based On Data In The File Name?

Sep 28, 2010

I have very little linux experience. And need some help with a bash script. I need to a script I can set cron to run to sort files out of a holding folder into final folders. It doesn't necessarily have to be bash, but I think it would be sufficient for this. File names are formatted as such when created: Dest-Date-Time-CID-Destination# I want the files to be moved from a all in one holding folder to a folder structure like this.

.../storage/year/month/day/Destination#/VarX(type)/hour/CID/'File'

I would need an if/else if/else statement to say if Dest = A set VarX = B If for example the file name was

infinity-20100927-17:00-1112223333-4445556666.wav

I would like the above file to end up moved from

.../holding

to

.../storage/2010/09/27/4445556666/Inbound/17/1112223333/infinity-20100927-17:00-1112223333-4445556666.wav

So the script will need to make directories based on information in the file name which is delimited by single dashes. Then move files from the holding folder to the newly created "sorted" folders.

Programming :: STDIN, STDOUT, STDERROR Redirection For Scripting - Bash: Log.txt: No Such File Or Directory

Sep 7, 2010

I'm writing a script to execute bash commands in the PHP CLI. I would like to suppress errors from bash and write my own error message if an error occurs. So far I have this (assuming log.txt doesn't exist!):

Code:

tac log.txt 2>/dev/null

Which works as expected, tac kicks up an error but the error is suppressed, but when I use this:

Code:

tac < log.txt 2>/dev/null

I get:

Code:

bash: log.txt: No such file or directory

The tac error is suppressed but bash still gives me a dirty error.

Ubuntu Servers :: Cache Directory And File Structure In Memory?

Aug 11, 2010

i am running Ubuntu Lucid x64 as a fileserver that shares its files via SFTP, NFS and Samba. Currently the hard disks are configured to go to standby if they are not needed. This works perfectly as long as no one browses the shares or my HTPC is running: That one repeatedly looks through the shares for new music or movies. In other words my problem is that the disks are spinning up a lot more often than they should have to. Additionally the spin-up time delays the response time while browsing. Since the machine has a lot of unused RAM i want to tell the kernel that it should keep the directory structure in memory. That way the disks would not need to spin up every time someone browses through the directories.

General :: Creating A Directory Structure - And Setup File Security?

May 15, 2010

jump into a Linux class in college with only 3 weeks left in the course. I thought I would be able to catch on, and go figure, it didn't exactly happen that way. I was given an assignment to do, and I am so far lost it isn't even funny. I need to create a directory structure, set up file security, create a step by step instruction manual on how to copy/delete said files, and create a guide to common Linux commands. How would I create these files in root and share them with the other users? and where can I find a list of common commands and their functions?

General :: Using Lynx To Create Html Page With The File Structure Of A Local Directory

Oct 10, 2010

I'm working with a dual-boot laptop running Ubuntu 10.0/Windows 7 and a Debian 5 VPS while the OS's shouldn't have much impact on my question.

What I would like to do is create a html page that I can upload to my VPS which lists all of the files/folders on my local 2TB hard drive (Specifically media such as Movies, Music, TV Shows...). The media obviously will not reside on the server, but I would like to at least have a list which will allow me to select, for instance, a bands artist so that it redirects me to the albums in the directory below.

Ultimately, I'm looking for Open Directory Browsing without actually having the media on my server. I have been attempting to create something to this effect using lynx, however, I'm not sure if it can be done with this command or if it's even possible for that matter.

General :: Copy A File With Certain Name Pattern For Which Exact Place In Complex Directory-structure Unknown?

Sep 19, 2011

I want to copy all files with the name XYZ* into one folder. The problem is that the files are in different subfolders and that not even the depth of the folder structure is the same for all files. Luckily, at least each file has a unique name.

Of course, I thought about the cp command but I guess the depth of the folder structure needs to be the same for this to work.

Programming :: C++ - Store A Text File In A Data Structure?

May 25, 2009

I am writting a program that reads a text file (music.txt) & stores it in a Data Structure. I am a novice learning over the internet so I this is something I have never done. How do I do this?

Quote:

Write a program that reads the data from the music.txt file and store it in a data structure. To implement this data structure you must use an array of songs and each song must be represented by a struct with appropriate fields. So far all I can do is open to file to read it (very simple I know) but so far is it correct?

Code:

#include <iostream>

Ubuntu :: Directory Exists But Bash Says It Doesn't - No Such File Or Directory

Aug 19, 2011

I've run into a problem with my bash program.

Code:a mkdir -p /home/chris/Downloads/ARCHIVE/`date -I` find /home/chris/Downloads* -mtime +14 -exec "cp {} /home/chris/Downloads/ARCHIVE/`date -I` ;

It's meant to move old files from my Downloads folder into an archive file (later tar them). The directory exists, I've used $PWD and nautilus and ls to make sure it's there, yet for every file it gives

Code: find: `cp /home/chris/Download/foo.bar /home/chris/Downloads/ARCHIVE/2011-08-19': No such file or directory I tried to test it on a different destination, specifically my home folder. IT still gave me the error.IS it a bad syntax within find or something else? I'm running a 32-bit system with 11.04

Programming :: BASH : Using A Loop To Download A Series Of Files?

Feb 2, 2010

Never mind, I figured it out myself. Firstly, the old version of BASH I'm using doesn't support

Code:

So I had to use

Code:

for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27

Secondly, it was simply

Code:

#!/bin/bash
for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27

Ubuntu :: Help With Bin File - Error Message - Bash - /hldsupdatetool.bin - No Such File Or Directory

Jun 9, 2009

I am new to Linux and I wanted to setup a dedicated game server on my notebook.

I've installed Ubuntu 9.04. I than created a directory named /home/phlex/kfserver. I downloaded the application binary from Steam. I changed the file permission with chmod +x hldsupdatetool.bin and now the file attributes are -rwxr-xr-x.

The problem is when I try to run the binary file. If I type ./hldsupdatetool.bin I get an error message "-bash: ./hldsupdatetool.bin: No such file or directory. It seems the OS can't find the file. I've downloaded the file several times thinking it may have been corrupt but it's not. I can delete the file, I can rename it and so the file is there. Sometimes Linux can be aggravating to use.

Programming :: Bash - Compare Directory To Database?

May 23, 2011

I have a (rather large) database of mp3 track information. I also have several directories of the actual mp3s. I'm trying to write a simple bash script that will check the contents of the directories against what's in the database, and upon finding a file that isn't in the database, do something.

Here's what I have so far:

Code:

The trouble I'm having (in the sample directory of "/mnt/music/B/Beatles, The/" the file "Beatles, The - Taxman.mp3" isn't in the database.) is getting it to actually trigger an error when an entry isn't in the database.

Once triggering on a non-entered file is working, any way to get it to traverse the entire /mnt/music hierarchy?

Programming :: Excluding Directory From Backup In Bash?

Jun 30, 2011

I've got the following code and kludge. It's working okay except that there's a directory called "Archive" which I don't need to backup. I've tried various combinations of &&, -a, etc., and I'm kind of at a loss for getting this right.

Here's the code I have so far:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# backup subdirs as individual tarballs with prepended timestamps and
# move them somewhere else.
# --exclude "/path/to/dir/*" (Doesn't seem to work)

[Code]...

How can I write that line so that I can loop through all of the subdirs, tarring them up, but excluding the "Archive" subdirectory?

Server :: UShare - Directory Recursion And Symbolic Links / "drill Down" Directory Structure To List Files?

Jan 22, 2010

I have uShare 1.1a setup to talk to my XBox 360. If I share a directory that has no subdirectories, the video files display on the XBox. However, most of my files are in sub-directories on a different partition - I don't really want to copy them to the share, but uShare doesn't seem to recognise any sub-directories or files contained therein.

I have tried setting up symbolic soft links directly to the video files (although this is a pain, it is better than moving the files)...

Code:
ln -s /home/jonftp/TV-Shows/Buffy/Season-1/Buffy-101.avi /home/share/Buffy-101.avi
...but these don't show up on the XBox either.

How can I get uShare to "drill down" the directory structure to list the files or how can I get uShare to follow symbolic links?

And the only thing I'm glad about is I still have an SSH connection open because creating a new connection isn't possible either. what should I do to repair this all.
