Programming :: Perl - Directories Given To Opendir Via Foreach Give "No Such File Or Directory" Error

Feb 19, 2009

I'm writing a perl script to remove a test database and part of that is of course getting rid of all files. So I wrote this to do the job:


This always results in an "Could not open /u00/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/rdbms/dbs for reading: No such file or directory" (that directory is the one ending with the $spfile_dir variable) message, although that directory exists and the executing user has writing rights on it.

The same behaviour if I create the directory array like this:


The problem does not occur when one of the directories is the only element in the array though. Of course I could copy and paste that part of the script for the second directory, but I don't like that workaround.

Networking :: Samba - Permissions Of Shared Directory And Directories Above It?

Oct 20, 2009

I am running Ubuntu 9.04, and wish to share a folder to be accessed without logging in via Windows Vista. If I set up the share through the nautilus right-click menu and enable "Guest Account", the share is inaccessible. The folder shows up, but it fails to mount. Vista says that it can see the computer, but not the shared folder.

The folder is


The only way I can get it to work is if I change the permissions of the folder /home/william to allow Others to access files.

Programming :: How To Find Directories That Do Not Have A Certain File

May 28, 2010

I'm having problems figuring out the process to find directories that DO NOT contain a certain file. I have a mp3 collection that all the album art is name "folder.jpg". Not all the albums have images. I need a way to find the albums/directories that do not contain "folder.jpg". I can find the ones that do contain "folder.jpg" with

find . -iname 'folder.jpg' -print0 | xargs -0 ls >> album_art

but that is as far as my bash-fu can take me. I'm not really sure what my next step is.

My directory structure is like such: a-z/artist/album/folder.jpg

Programming :: Makefile - Handles Directories ?

Dec 8, 2009

I'm trying to figure out how Make handles directories.

How can I modify this makefile so it will put all of the .o files in a separate build directory?


But make ignores this and still puts main.o in the base directory. And if I refer to the build directory in the dependencies for bandit, make complains about "no rule ..."

I want to keep main.cpp in the base directory, all other sources in the src directory, and all object files in the build directory.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/agents/tp/
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/?$ agents/tp/$1/index.php [L]

I keep getting "The requested URL /JoeAgent/ was not found on this server." why it's not working?

Programming :: Print Message When Changing Directories

Jul 21, 2010

I need some direction on a small scripting question. I've been doing some development and storing the code on a network drive with multiple user access. My development is getting complex enough that it is time to set up a svn repo for it. I would like to set up a little script (if possible) that prints a message/reminder to whomever is accessing the code directory stating that the code is ultimately stored in svn and any changes need to be checked in, etc. Is there a way to have linux print a message to the screen based on a 'cd /specific_dir/' command? So far google is mum on the topic. Using Debian and bash shell.

Programming :: Copy Files To Dynamic Directories?

Feb 14, 2011

I have been searching for a solution to the following problem:

When my distro of choice updates Firefox web browser, the directory name is '/usr/lib/firefox-<version>'.
The problem here is that the directory name is dynamic by nature and doesn't allow a simple static solution, e.g.
'cp -rf /usr/local/files/bookmarks.html /usr/lib/firefox/defaults/profile'.

The same quandary applies when adding extensions, changing prefs etc.
I have looked at the following commands:-
find, sed, xargs, grep, awk, fprint.
Unfortunately my grasp of syntax and programming is very simple at best.

Programming :: Finding Location Of Duplicate Directories

Jan 8, 2011

This simple task is proving harder then imagined. I have a multi-level directory that I'm trying to clean of duplicates, but I can't get 'find' to print what I need to see. To give an illustrative example, here is a dir:

stuart@stuart:~/testdir$ ls *

So the output of find as i'd like it to work would show the two locations of dir1, which would be ./dir1 and ./level2/dir1. But no:

stuart@stuart:~/testdir$ ls -d */ | head -1 | find . "`cat`" -type d

Programming :: Synchronize Two Directories (bash Script)?

Feb 11, 2011

It achieves a bash script that takes two parameters (command line). These two parameters must be two paths of two directories (existing, and different such as not being of the other sub-folder). Path1 and path2 are for simplicity.The script will recursively visit the two directories and all sub-directories, sub-sub-directories, etc.. Looking for differences between their contents (files or directories). In particular, suppose that we work with both path1 and path2 directory, and scanned the files contained therein. These situations can occur:

* Path1 exists in a file that is not present in path2: in this case, the script displays the path of the file to you (print screen) and asks if he wants the file is copied in path2 or not. Reads the user's response and acts accordingly.

* Path2 exists in a file that is not present in path1: in this case, the script displays the path of the file and asks if the user wants the file is copied in path1 or not. Reads the user's response and acts accordingly.

* Both path1 path2 in a file with the same name but different contents: in this case, the script displays the path of the two files (which of course will start with path1 and path2 but end with an equal) to the user together with the two dates have been changed last time. Then asks if you want the file to be replaced by one in path1 path2, or that the file is replaced by one in path2 path1, or that both are left unchanged. Reads the user's response and acts accordingly.

* Both path1 path2 in a file with the same name and same content, in which case the script does nothing and proceeds with the next file.This is done for all regular files in path1 and path2. The special file (socket, device, symbolic link ...) are ignored. For folders in path1 and path2 is recursively by:

* Path1 if there is a folder that is not present in path2: in this case, the script displays the path to the folder and asks if you want the folder and all its contents are copied to path2. Reads the user's response and acts accordingly.

* Path1 if there is a folder that is not present in path2: similar at first.

* Both path1 path2 that there are two folders with the same name as the script works recursively on the two folders.

Programming :: Link Objects In Separate Directories Using KDevelop?

Oct 4, 2010

Using: Open SUSE 11.0 64 bit, KDE 3.5.9 (release 49) and KDevelop 3.5.1. Problem: A singleton was created in subproject A, and so an object file is created in subproject A. In subproject B, I want to use that object file. We have not been able to find a way to link that object file created in subproject A with subproject B. Also, the subprojects are in different directories. We created a symbolic link to the ".h" and ".cpp" files in directory A. And the project compiles and links just fine after adding the symbolic link to the header and cpp files in subproject B. My concern is, that two objects of that singleton will be created. The whole idea of making a singleton is so that there is only one instance at a time.

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 Script For Cleaning Home Directories

Jul 25, 2011

Im running on Solaris 10 and I am trying to write a script that will look at all the directories in export.home and then grep for the those in passwd and will display the directories that don't have a password associated with them

Here is what I got so far but its not working.
for i in 'ls /export/home'
test='getent passwd | grep $i'
if [ $test="" ]
echo "No Home Diectories Found $i"

All this does is display what was listed in the export.home. What I want it to do is just display what was not found in password.
