Programming :: Sed - Save Output To File With Filename From Content Of Another File?

Feb 28, 2011

My employer issues pdf files with everyones work schedules. I copy the content and save it as plain text in a file called unformatted (hope to be able to automate this step someday). Im working on a SED script that reduces unformatted to only display what I want to see and saves the result in a file Ive named formatted. After that I have to manually copy formatted and save it with that days date as a filename e.g. 2011-02-25 or whatever day is scheduled in the pdf, for use on a mobile device (Nokia N900). I noticed that the date occurs on certain lines in the file so I added a line like:

sed -n 's/^Date: (201[1-9])/([0-1][0-9])/([0-3][0-9]).*/1-2-3/p' < unformatted >theDate
That creates a file theDate with the date in it that I wish to use as the filename for this particular instance. So I would like to skip the file formatted all together and have the sed- script write to a new file using the content of the Date as a filename, but how do I make that happen? And of course it would be more elegant if I could skip the intermediate theDate file as well.

Ubuntu :: Save All Terminal Output To A .txt File?

Mar 15, 2011

I sometimes stick my neck out and provide somewhat detailed, and often risky, "Mr-fix-it" remedies for boot problems. Now, I know it's possible to amend each command with "whatever_command > whatever.txt" in which case it'll place the command output in a file in /home.

But if you're directing someone to run a lot of commands as I did here is it possible to save the output of all commands to a .txt file without amending each command?

Or is it already saved somewhere that I'm not yet aware of? I wouldn't be surprised if the latter were true, I just haven't yet found it

Ubuntu :: Save The Output In A File (or Log) To Check If Error?

Mar 10, 2011

I have a bash script that i created for a colleague to configure the servers he installs. It does package installations, modifies some config files, creates directories.

The problem is sometimes he says that the script skips some steps. There are some steps that require user input and i think he chooses wrong option. (i have tested the script and it works fine).

My question is how can i save the output in a file (or log) so i can check if there are error? I know about the ">>" operators but will this "script.sh >> output.txt" still bring the dialogs for user input (like read input from shell and mysql password dialog from install package)? And how can i record everything he inputs?

I read about logger, but since there are a lot of commands do i have to log every command or can i just log the whole script.

Programming :: Check That The Same File Exists Within Two Different Directories Using A Filename As A Variable?

Apr 30, 2010

I am in need of a way to check that the same file exists within two different directories using a filename as a variable. Here is the process which requires it: The script is reaches out (via ftp) and pulls down a file(s) and delete it afterwards. This is halfhazard because in the instance it doesnt pull down the file, yet still deletes it, we are up a creek. I am looking to pull it down to a temp location and then verify that file exists in the location in which it needs to be present to process before deleting it, adding a little extra layer for security. The script itself is finished.If I put a file name in manually it works perfect. I just need a way to pump the filename into the variable.

Programming :: Save Input From An Online Form To A File/database?

Browsing some websites I've found a code for online form where a user provides name, number, etc. Everything is created in html/javascript. I'm just wondering whether it's possible to collect this input and present it in a database form so that I'd be able to see who's provided data and all the details they entered.Actually, it doesn't have to be a proper database (it would probably require php/mysql). It could be a weekly/monthly report (a text file) of people who provided details. The website is hosted by a third party company.This is an html bit:

Programming :: How To Redirect ALL Output To (log) File?

Aug 6, 2010

I am again struggling to make a script work, but hey, it is fun, I am learning new things. I discovered the set -x option which was, for me, like the second coming. Still, what I am not able to do is redirect ALL output to a (log) file, including what is produced by the -x setting. Let's assume a very simple script:
Code: #!/bin/bash
set -x
source="/home/atelier/Bureau/"
ls -la $source and I am running it as . test.sh >> /var/log/test.rmcb.log

The result of ls goes inded into the log file, but the rest still shows on the console where I am running the script: Code: ++ source=/home/atelier/Bureau/
++ ls --color=auto -la /home/atelier/Bureau/ Is there a way to redirect EVERYTHING to the log file ?
