I am an uploader to a various hosts, so this tiny script me a lot. I make a rar archive and split files with 100mb. I could get 3-4 or even 76 parts of rar files and it would take me some time to paste all these urls to remote upload function of filehosting sites. For example:

Programming :: Rename Files Matching A List?

Jul 12, 2009

Is there a way, preferably in python or BASH, to rename files from a list? for instance, track1.mp3, track2.mp3 should be renamed to the names stored in a file listing song names. I have tried to loop a variable through directory listing and renamed them, only to find that filenames with spaces can't be assigned to a variable as a whole. To solve the problem above, I have tried the read command in BASH, which enables the program reading line by line from a list. However, It was failed to pipe the results from directory listing to the read command.

Programming :: Make List Of Directories Which Contain Files Other Than Subdirs?

Oct 17, 2009

I need to, through a bash script, go through a given directory (given as argument 1) to list out the relative path in this directory (including $1) for eact subdirectory which contains files. Directories which only contain . .. and eventually only subdirectories SHALL NOT be listed. It is this last requirement that makes it difficult for me.

I have been using the tree command for now, but I have not found a way to ignore paths to directories which only contains other subdirs or nothing at all in any easy way. I may offcourse test each directory after they are listed but this gives an extra loop to go through and I beleive it should be possible to do it directly when creatring the list. I guess by using find or ls in conjuntion with the tree command or by itself it should be possible but I am not to conversant of nested script commands.

Programming :: Bash: Populate A List Of Arbitrarily Named Files?

Mar 14, 2010

How to build a list of files under a directory that may have any permissible characters in the name, that is anything except NUL? The only possible (?) bash data structure to contain a list of such names is an array because NUL cannot be used as a list item separator so no X-separated list can safely be used; there is no "X" that might not be part of a file name. OK -- but how to populate such an array? Here's what I've tried.


# Set up test files
dir=$(mktemp -d "/tmp/${0##*/}.XXXXXX")
touch $dir/foo $dir/bar

Programming :: BASH Read Text List Zip Files Into A Single Archive?

Jul 22, 2010

AKA "zipping on the fly .. the slow-as-molasses way." The list includes full pathnames to each file, and they're all in subfolders of the same parent folder (which, unfortunately, is not the root folder of the drive or system on which the files reside). A cleaned-up and radio-ready portion of the list looks like




What I'd like to be able to do is zip all the files in the list into a single archive, to avoid the step of having to copy them to the same location (presumably another folder on the HD) and then zip that folder. I'm more inclined to make provisions about extracting to a single folder at some other time. Is this possible in BASH, or would I have to consider a faster, more robust scripting language such as python or perl?

Programming :: Make A Program That Maintains A List Of Tags That Can Be Attached To A Set Of Files?

Jul 28, 2010

I want to make a program that maintains a list of tags that can be attached to a set of files. Store the tags in the files. The main problem is that there is no way to get a list of all the tags without reading each and every file. And also what if you have an unused tag? Have a file that contains tag "keys" and file list "values". This seems like it would be fast and effective, but what if one of the files gets renamed?

Programming :: URL With Parameters Containg Ampersand?

May 20, 2010

[URL]... The above url is generated by PHP code.

if($msg=="No capex advice")
echo " .. <a href="upload_capexadvice.php";
if($msg=="No purchase order")
echo " .. <a href="upload_purchaseorder.php";
if($msg=="No invoice")


I pass two parameters in a URL, s and q. I recently ran into the problem that the & in the value(aerial&satelitecity)causes a bit of trouble so I need to replace it. After some research I found that it needs to be replaced by %26. I've tried the standard PHP functions htmlspecialchars and htmlentities, but they translate to & Is there another function that I haven't found yet or must I write my own?

Programming :: Bash Script Sed -r -i And -e Parameters?

May 3, 2011

I have a bash script where I am replacing a date with a variable

sed -r "s/([0-9][0-9])/([0-9][0-9])/([0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9])/$variable/g" /path/to/file.txt
I have googled but cant find any info on what the -r, or sometimes I have seen -i and -e, after the "sed" I googled "sed parameters"

r appears to output the replaced date, but not change the original file. Usually using -i will change an original file for me. Does anyone know what the -i, -e, -r are about? A link to an explanation would be good, as I have been unable to find one in my searches.

I get this error in the non-test bash script like: let "rdval = $rdstr"syntax error: operand expected (error token is " ")The let command prints rdval= but I presume this is due to the printf test statements getting in the way.I am getting no compile errors. Why does the C code not print the values specified?

Programming :: Access Grub Parameters Using Shell Scripts?

Apr 12, 2010

I am setting up my test / development machine with the following scenario in mind : I boot the machine and then select one of a number ( e.g. 3 ) boot options in Grub ( Normally "OpenSuse", "Safe Mode" etc., but in this case "System Restore Dev.", "System Restore Test" ). The only difference between these options are the settings ( e.g. "vga=378" ) in these cases something like "distro=dev" / "distro=test".

In a script run on the booted system I can extract the value of the "distro" parameter ( in this case "test" ) and use it as input for a command line tool. Meaning that name entered as the value for the "distro" parameter is used for loading a file when the system is up and running. The command line tool then restores the partition with the contents of the file and reboots the system.Now, my problem is this : How to I access the Grub arguments? Code snippets ( in shell scripting or python preferbly ) are more than welcome.

Ubuntu :: How To Display Desktop In List View

Jun 8, 2011

Is there any way I can get my desktop to display the items on it in list view? I've spent a good part of a day doing google searches and reading thread after thread on this subject and I've tried all kinds of suggested ways of accomplishing it but as of yet I haven't had any success. I just switched to ubuntu from windows and I was able to do this in windows with a program that loaded at startup. Seeing as how linux is infinitely more customizable than windows I would assume this would be easy to do but I'm having no luck. Here's what my desktop looked like in windows, I'd like to make the icons display the same in ubuntu: [URL]
