Programming :: Find String In Text File (bash Script)
Apr 17, 2011
write such script (bash script). I have some text file with name filename.txt I must check if this file contains string "test-string-first", I must cut from this file string which follows string "keyword-string:" and till first white-space and save it to some variable.
For example. File: PHP Code: PHP Code:
Start 15022011 Eng 12-3-42
SN1232324422 11 test-string-first
HH keyword-string:123456321-net mark (11-22)
I wanted to find and replace a string from a perl file. I have written a script in bash which runs the following command.
perl -pi -e "s/$findstring/$replacestring/" testfile where as $findstring = print F_WC_TMP"$line "; and $replaceString = $line = join ' ', split ' ', $line; print F_WC_TMP"$line ";
But when I am running the above command, i think it is replacing the $findstring with the above mentioned string and hence it contains a $line, it is looking for the variable $line and not finding the exact string. I am confused about how to search for a string that contains $ in it and replace it with another $string.
[Syenite] RegionUUID = 8fc56fdd-0afd-4074-9432-0ae8f42b799f Location = 9992,10007 InternalAddress = 0.0.0.0 InternalPort = 9000 AllowAlternatePorts = False ExternalHostName = 184.108.40.206 What I need to do is find out what the IP address is after "ExternalHostName ="
After that I will need to compare that IP to whatismyip and if it's different then replace it but that is easy to do with sed. I just can't figure this simple hurdle out.
This may be a basic bash array/string operation related question, but I couldn't find any direct answer. So here it goes:I have a lot of data sorted in various directories. All directories need same processing except for a special group of directories. I have a symbolic link of the script in discussion in each directory. I want the script to get the name of the current directory, check if that belongs to special group and do specific operations.So I get the name of the directory
Code: mm=`basename `pwd`` Now the the group of directories that needs something different to be done, contains these
I am having trouble writing a script that monitors a text file. When the file contains number 1 (or any other string that is not a command) it does nothing, but when it is something different from 1, it executes that command.
So, there are 2 files: monitor.mon - this is the file that will be checked constanlty; and test.sh - the script that does the job. The monitor.mon file will have its content modified by php. This means a web page will have a form where I input commands and writes does commands in the file. Test.sh will watch when the file's content changes from character 1 to a command, execute that command and write back a 1 so it will not execute it more times.
I tried combining while and if but with no success. Tried reading the file with cat and grep -e but it doesn't seem to recognize when content changes.
I want to use SED to do the following: In a text file replace any occurrences of the three character string ZZZ with a quotation mark "and. replace all occurrences of a comma with a semi-colon. It is the S/ / / command which is stumping me on the first issue...inparticular how to get the replace string to be quote.
I have script that I'm working on that updates a username in all the files that are called blah.inc for my framework. since i host a bunch of these web apps i need to do it to all of them. so I need to figure out how to update these files automagically with out me watching it to call vim every time. heres what I have so far
This finds the files but now i need to figure out how to do s/bob/fred/g on those files.
I'm having problems with Tomboy. I have a few hundred note files and I need to go through all of them and replace all instances of "<link:broken>a</link:broken>" with "a". Is there a bash command I can use to do this?
I need to Read a path of a file witch is written in Text file i used this
FILENAME=$1 while read line do echo $line done < $FILENAME
it worked and showed me the Line witch was written in my file but now my problem is how am gonna use that line as a path i mean for example if am gonna execute a linux command on that file like dpkg -i /path/to/the/file how am gonna export it from The $Line variable and use it after the command.
I have a text file which stores the list of files & dir, I want to get only file's extensions from this file & want to store it in another file.eg, below is the file's contents & from it I want to get the extensions sh, pl & h & want to store it in another file. Also I don't want directory list.
A scripts/services_restarter.sh A scripts/svn post_commit scripts A scripts/tmp/
I have a script which checks on my jobs that run on some cluster.The script, "script.sh", takes as an input the job-id for the job to be checked. Sometimes I have 100s of jobs and I want to check them all (for successful completion.) I could put these job-ids into a text file, "job-id.txt", each id in its own line.For each job-id, the script would ask me few questions (with a yes or no answers) to see if I want to do some other checks for each job-id.I want to know how may I direct my job-ids from this text file into the script one job-id at a time.
I am trying to think of a logic where my file contains some data I had to read and do some processing. Issue is that file contains data multiple times. For example:
::::::::::: var1=value1 var2=value2
I have to read first paragraph of variables and do some processing and then move on until the end of file. Variable names are same in whole file but for each paragraph the value is different. I can't think of a logic to attain this task. How can I do it? It should be a simple bash script, but I am not able to work out.
What i want to do is pretty simple.I want to uncomment every line that begins with "deb" (except for deb cdrom) in /etc/apt/sources.list.I know how to do this through system > administration > software sources.I know I can gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.I'd rather not do it that way.I'd rather have a script do it. It's less work, less typing, less clicking, and would work the same on every ubuntu version.
i am on processing text tasks And i found that if you assign a text to a variable is chomp'ed automatically the newline
The problem is i can only access the items/lines using:
for line in $variable do echo $line # Other commands done
how do i convert this to an indexed array. More importantly, how do i get access to individual $line, ..., $line[n] Another thing, if the file.txt, has lines with spaces it is a mess using the for...in..., but echoing prints line by line...o_0
I want to be able to check the contents of a text file for a specific string and remove it from the file from the command prompt. I would basically be searching through a number of files and if a specific string is found I would like it removed automatically. pretty much a find and replace, were the replace is nothing. any one got any ideas on how you would do this. I already have the search part sorted just need to be able to remove the string I don't want from the multiple files.
