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.
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

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.
I a csv-file (A.csv) with a total of 4.600.000 lines. Thats to many and only a few is necessary. I have a txt-file with 150 lines (X.txt) (all lines is dataset from a mainframe and looks like abc.def.123.456. How do I remove lines from A.csv where none of the dataset from x.txt is present?
I have a plain text file with 360 lines of varying length text. How do I add a comma or other symbol to the end of each line so that I can convert the file to csv format that I can open in a spreadsheet (45 rows, 8 columns). That means each 8 lines of text forms 8 columns, with 45 rows.
I am looking for a way to keep a log and make if then statements if a line exitsts in the log. I also am looking for a way to make a simple loop, like goto line number, and I also am wondering how to add/remove bits of text from a text file (plugins line in server.properties)
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 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 want to display something in my text view widget in glade using c code. that's all right. now I need to attach a save button beneath the text view.so that on click the text view content should save as a txt file..
So, while displaying the contents of above file on a web page, I want to format the field names found in the log file: User Name:, Reported Problems Description:, and Remarks:. These fields may contain a variable length of text and no specific line number is assumed for them to appear on.
im trying to output a list of running processes via a shell script. At the moment i got this which outputs the processes to a text file called out.
echo $(ps aux) >>out
The problem is though, the processes are all just one big block of text which makes it hard to read. Does anyone know how to sort the output to a text file so that it prints to the text file at 1 process per line? I know its probably simple but im very new to linux.
I have a question regarding to the Graphical Splash Screen. Is their a way to show the text based startup on booting your OS? So. I don't the OpenSuse Background with the loading line. But i want the half transparent black background if possible or just the black background with all the loading texts. The black and white screen.
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.
I need to chop of the top 30ish lines of several log files until a line starting with "Initialization completed."The trouble is that it's not always the same amount of lines that need to be deleted, and they don't always contain the same information, which is why I would need to delete everything priorhe line starting with "Initialization completed."Right now I have a little script I wrote based on looping each file through several "grep -v" commands with each known pattern of lines I want to ignore, but it is tedious and I have to inspect each file afterwards to make sure nothing is left from above "Initialization completed
I need to create a script to count the number of lines from a text file . The output must be put on another text file (no_lines.txt) and in this file i need to generate from the script this output :"File $FILE has $NO_LINES lines ".
I have a .txt-file with ~50.000 lines of numbers, generated by a mathematics program. From this file, I need line ~ 1.100 to line ~16.000 (these lines are always the same btw, this may make the solution easier, dunno) to be copy/pasted to another file, where the lines ~500 to ~15.000 (also, every time the same) should be overwritten by the aforementioned lines...I haven't found or come up with anything that works yet, mostly I find solutions to copy everything from one file to another but I can't find something to specifically overwrite a part of a file with part of another.
I am using Ubuntu and looking for a good editor to edit a file that is > 4GB. I just need to put content at the end and beginning of the file. I suppose I could use something like
cat "text to add" >> huge_file
To append to the file. Is that the route to go? What about prepending? In general, what is the best route if I wanted to edit somewhere in the middle?
I've tried VIM and it fails miserably. I assume emacs and nano would be even worse. What else is there? I assume to accomplish what I am looking for, the editor would have to be specifically designed for this by not keeping the entirety of the file's contents in memory.
i've been using some subliminal software on windows for a while now and have found it to be really good. It basically just flashes up a message on screen over the top of whatever is going on at that time but the message is only there for about 30 milli seconds
The message is not there long enough for your conscious mind to read it but the theory is that your subconscious mind will read it.It actually works really well. THe problem is that they dont package a linux version although they do have an OSX version, i'd really like this on ubuntu.
Tried it in wine and it installs but nothing happens after that. Alternatively perhaps somebody can tell me how you could get a message to flash up on screen based on a list of messages in a text file?
