Programming :: Adding Line From File1 Into A Line Of Another File Based On Maching IDs

Jan 3, 2011

I wish to add information to one of my files based on matching IDs,

Here is an example

(the id is the 3 colunm)

(the ID is the 2 colunm)

And the output i wish to be

OUTPUT:

So as you can see the ones that do not match are still present, and the ones that do match just have the extra information from file2.txt added to them.

I thought about using join but that only seems to join the ones that match displays thoes only. i would like all the information in the output file.

Programming :: Perl - Delete Line From Text File With Duplicate Match At Beginning Of Line

Apr 1, 2009

Was wondering if any perl guru's could help me with a quick log file adjustment. I have a text file that looks like so (tabs and newlines are revealed so you can see what separates the data):

There are maybe 100 lines of text in this file at any given time. I need to delete all duplicate lines only looking at the first bit of text prior to the first tab. It doesn't matter which one gets deleted as long as there are no two lines that begin with that same text at the beginning before the first tab. So in this example, either the fist line "1234" or the last line "1234" would need to be deleted. I already have code in my script that opens the files - I just need the code to read the text into an array and the part that would find matches based on the above criteria, and make the deletions.

If it would be easier, I can even do a system call and use SED (v4.1.5) and/or AWK (3.1.5) instead.

Programming :: Sed Insert Line With Leading Spaces?

Mar 3, 2011

I'm trying to insert a line using sed that has leading spaces before the text. Sed seems to be just dropping the spaces and only inserting the text. Any ideas what I'm missing?

Code:

NAM=rb134
sed -i.bak -e "$i
host ${NAM} {" /etc/crap

Instead of inserting a line with 8 leading spaces inserts it with "host" at the beginning of the line. I tried

Code:

NAM=rb134
sed -i.bak -e "$i
^ host ${NAM} {" /etc/crap

but it put the "^" at the begging of the line.

Programming :: C - Copy File Line By Line With Some Slight Changes?

Mar 2, 2010

In C, I want to make a program that will take a file and replace it with a file that's nearly the same but with some minor changes. Also, I would like to point out that I'm still fairly much a beginner with C. As for an example of the file, I want to take something like this:

Code:

Random Crap
More Random Crap
Even More
Something That Changes XXXXX

[code]....

I figured the best way to go about doing this was to open the file and a blank file, read the original bit by bit and when it gets to the point that needs to be changed exchange the part that needs to be changed with what it should be changed to, delete the original file, and rename the new one to the correct name. So the first problem I've run into (and I'll probably have more) is that when I'm trying to read stuff from the original file, my program doesn't seem to be finding the original. I'm sure much of my problems will be just from not knowing how to use the C functions so bear with me. Right now I have the following:

Code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

[code]...

And when I try to run it I get the following:

Code:

Died Here: No such file or directory
Segmentation fault

Right now the length of 50 was just a random test length. Pretty much I was just trying to get it to read anything from the file. In the end I'm going to want it to read the entire file bit by bit, but at the moment I can't seem to get it to read anything.

Programming :: QTimer To Read A File Line After Line?

I need a qtimer to trigger reading of a file line by line, I have the code sort of running with the timer trigger but qtimer will just read the first line over and over as it is now.

Here is the code so far:

self.lcdtimer = QTimer()
self.connect(self.pushButton85,SIGNAL("clicked()"),self.update)
self.connect(self.lcdtimer, SIGNAL("timeout()"), self.lcdxyz)

Code:

Programming :: Insert Line Of Text Prior To Pattern Only Once?

Jun 29, 2010

I have a file like so:

Code:

one
two
three
four

I would like to insert prior to the word "three" all items from this second file with the following contents:

Code:

four
three
two
one

Now my issue is, and I have been using both sed and awk currently, that after the second line of the new file is read there will of course now be 2 copies of the word "three" but I would like to only insert the final 2 words, ie "two" and "one" prior to only the first occurrence of the word "three" so final file will look like:

Code:

one
two
four

[code]....

So here there is now only one of each word from the second file joined to make the new file. For simple code I have tried something like the following:

Code:

while read line
do
awk -v n=$line '!f && /three/{print n;f++}1' file1 > tmp_file
mv tmp_file file1
done < file2

Now this works but seems very clumsy to me. There is obviously a better sed and / or awk out there.

Programming :: Copy And Replacing Specific Line From File1 To File2 Line By Line

Mar 22, 2011

I have two files, file1.traj and file2.traj. Both these files contain identical data and the data are arranged in same format in them. The first line of both files is a comment.

At line 7843 of both files there is a cartesian coordinate X, Y and Z ( three digits ). And at line 15685 there is another three digits. The number of lines in between two cartesian coordinates are 7841. And there are few hundreds of thousands of lines in a file.

What I need to do is copy the X Y Z coordinate (three digits) from file1.traj at line 7843 and paste into file2.traj at the same line number as in file1.traj. The next line will be 15685 from file1.traj and replace at line 15685 at file2.traj. And I dont want other lines (data) in file2.traj get altered. This sequence shall be going on until the end of the file. Means copy and substitude the selected lines from file1.traj into file2.traj.

I tried to use paste command but I cant do for specified line alone.

Here i showed the data format in the file. I used the line number for clarity purpose.

General :: Insert Tab At Beginning Of Each Line In File?

Aug 5, 2010

I am trying to create a shell script where a user can specify a file with a list of logins and the script will create a batch file with specific information in specific columns.

Example:

loginfile.txt has

User1
User2
User3

I need the output to be as below:

1 User1 Date 12/31/9999
2 User2 Date 12/31/9999
3 User3 Date 12/31/9999

Where the columns are separated as below.

1[tab][tab]User1[tab]date +%D[tab]12/31/9999
2[tab][tab]User2[tab]date +%D[tab]12/31/9999
3[tab][tab]User3[tab]date +%D[tab]12/31/9999

I can use the nl utility to get the numbers easily enough, but I need two tab separations between the number and the user list. Is there a sed command that will insert at the beginning of each line? If so I can just run nl after I get some tabs up in the front.

Programming :: Read File Line By Line?

Mar 23, 2011

so I have a script that creates couple of txt files. First file output is something like below..

cn=test,ou=something,ou=some,o=org
cn=testa,ou=something,ou=some,o=org
cn=testb,ou=something,ou=some,o=org

second file output is something like below..
usera
userb
userc

Quote:

userdn=`ldapsearch -x -h $server -LLL "(objectclass=person)" dn | grep dn: | cut -d" " -f2 > userdn.txt

for i in $(cat userdn.txt);do

ldapsearch -h $server -p 389 -x -D $admid -w $admpwd -s one -b "$userdn" dn | grep dn: | cut -d" " -f2 | cut -d"=" -f2 | cut -d"," -f1 > user.txt

for i $(cat user.txt);do

echo "$userdn"
done
done

when I ran both ldapsearch commands invidually, they work fine. But when I ran script, I got first file correctly but not the second one. It looks like its not reading the first file correctly and not setting the variable ($userdn) value correctly in the second ldapseach command. I want read first file first line and run the second ldapsearch and continues, then read the second line..and so on.
