Ubuntu :: Sort The Output To A Text File So That It Prints To The Text File At 1 Process Per Line?

Feb 6, 2011

im trying to output a list of running processes via a shell script. At the moment i got this which outputs the processes to a text file called out.

echo $(ps aux) >>out

The problem is though, the processes are all just one big block of text which makes it hard to read. Does anyone know how to sort the output to a text file so that it prints to the text file at 1 process per line? I know its probably simple but im very new to linux.

Programming :: Bash Text To Variable Accessing Individual Text Lines?

May 2, 2010

i am on processing text tasks And i found that if you assign a text to a variable is chomp'ed automatically the newline

Code:

variable=$(cat file.txt)

The problem is i can only access the items/lines using:

Code:

for line in $variable
do
echo $line
# Other commands
done

how do i convert this to an indexed array. More importantly, how do i get access to individual $line[0], ..., $line[n] Another thing, if the file.txt, has lines with spaces it is a mess using the for...in..., but echoing prints line by line...o_0

Programming :: Delete Line Of Text From Text File Via Shell?

Jan 13, 2010

I have to delete a certain line of text from the a textfile via ubuntu's shell scripting.I have done research, and it seems that most people advocate the usage of sed /d option. sed makes does not edit the text file. Hence, most options I discovered involved the use of a temporary variable/textfile and then overwriting the old file with the temporary new file. Is there anyway whereby I can bypass the use of temporary storage containers? I hope there is any magical combination of commands to edit the file directly.

Programming :: Formatting Fields And Text Being Displayed From Text File?

Feb 9, 2011

I want to display the contents of a particular log file (simple text file, I mean in Linux). But there is a problem: The contents need to be organized in a fixed format. Have a look at this log file:

sampleLog.txt

Code:

User Name: XYZ
Reported Problems Description: Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah!

[code]....

So, while displaying the contents of above file on a web page, I want to format the field names found in the log file: User Name:, Reported Problems Description:, and Remarks:. These fields may contain a variable length of text and no specific line number is assumed for them to appear on.

The desired output should look like this:

User Name: XYZ
Reported Problems Description: Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah! Blah!Blah!

[code]....

Well, what I am trying to do may sound wierd to some of you. The filed "Reported Problems Description:" can possible contain text which embeds colon (.

Ubuntu :: Appending Text To The Output Of Ls?

Jul 14, 2011

I was wondering if it is possible to append some text to the output of ls. Like say, if i wanted to create symbolic links for all the files under a folder in my hard disk to a folder on my desktop, I could say (Pretty sure this won't work, but I am looking forward to something like this) echo ln -s | ls . This should append ln -s to all the files of ls.

Fedora :: F14 Gnome Text/plain Versus Text/html File Type

Apr 2, 2011

I put a text file on my desktop and added a couple lines of text with gedit. File type shows text/plain. Double-click opens the file in gedit which is what I want. I'm using the file to temporarily hold some snips of code that I copy from file to file, but when I copy some html into the file and save it, now file properties show it's text/html and a double-click opens the file in firefox, which isn't what I want. Is there some way to keep the file type from changing itself?

OpenSUSE :: Copy - Paste - KMail - Not Only The Marked Text Will Be Pasted But A Kind Of HTML Code Including The Text

Jan 10, 2011

since some days I have a strange problem with KMail (1.13.5) in KDE4.5.5. When I try to copy some text from an email and past it to any other program (e.g. Openoffice), not only the marked text will be pasted, but a kind of HTML code including the text.

This bug is not OpenSuse specific. I found the same bug in a Fedora mailing list (of course, whithout an answer): Strange Copy/Paste behavior in KMail 1.13.5/Kontact 4.4.8
