I'm trying to find exact matches of some users in the /etc/passwd file using "grep -w", but it doesn't always work. For example, I have the following users:[URl].. So, let's say, I want to search for the user "stewart" (which doesn't exist)
One of my application generates a text file with an XML output in it. I need to read that log files and if the output does not match to a string in couple of tags it should create a log file with the file name and the the tag name.
The two tags where the string should match is:
Identity format tag should always be JPEG , well- formed and valid status tags should be true.
I am using grep to filter out directories I am not interested in like this:svn stat | grep -v data/charts | grep -v lib/model | grep -v web/picsIt seems a bit "hacky". Is there a better way to specify more than one string to ignore, so that I dont have to chain multiple grep commands?
What is the best way to merge lines, in sed, awk or perl, that occur between certain strings? I'm new to sed scripting and I have been working on this for some time now. I have a large file (sample below) that I need to edit.
What I need looks something like this.
I'm working with a very large file so simply merging all the lines then adding a new line character before ">contig" and after "translated" won't work, at least not with sed.
trying to compile and install wxGTK-2.4.2,i configure with the line-./configure --with-gtk --enable-gtk2 --enable-unicode but when i go to make and make install i get the format not a string literal error, how can I fix this? really need wxGTK2.4 for some old apps.
I've been trying to understand pthread in C a little better. So I made a simple program that takes in a string from the command line and creates a thread to print the string. I've looked online and copied the basic concepts but there are something things I'm confused about. The programs works just fine, but I have questions. Here's what I have so far.
One thing I'd like to know is why the 3rd argument in the pthread_create function which is my SendMessage function needs to be typecasted to a void pointer and then send the address of the function. Also as for the 4th argument, I would see typecasting to void pointer in some of the pthread examples I saw online, but in my case I'm passing a char pointer, would this be correct? In which case would I ever want to pass a void pointer?
Do I need a pthread_exit(NULL) in my main and in the SendMessage function? If so, why? I added the sleep() function so that I could let the pthread_exit function in my SendMessage function execute first. I simply saw that the online examples on pthread had pthread_exit() in both locations.
I want to traverse a directory and get a list of files that contain a set of patterns. I assumed I could use grep for this, but I having trouble getting grep to only return files that match ALL patterns. Here's what I've come up with so far:
However, this gives me a list of files that match ANY of the patterns in the searchpatterns.txt file. I want to match ALL of the patterns. I've looked through the man page, but can't find anything that allows me to change the "OR" to "AND" for multiple patterns.
I have been fighting with a sed statement trying to get it to remove everything in a string until the last match and have been failing badly. how to get this to work..
sed --> enterprises.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.5 returns 5
I want sed to strip everything out until the last period. The final digit can and will change. Some parts before the final period can change as well, since enterprises will sometimes also be represented as more numbers and periods.
