Software :: Making A Bash Script To Read In Different Files And Rename Output Files?

May 7, 2009

Until now i haven't had to dabble with bash scripts.

I have a program that reads in data files. These are named datafile01_R, datafile01_G, datafile01_B, they then increment, so datafile02_R etc i have about 600 of these. the program reads in 3 data sets at a time from each run, so files_01 r, g, and b.

The program then does its magic, and outputs about 40 different files, depending on the file, they gone to folders named R, G, B, psa, or tracking.

The program itself has configuration files to say where the files should gone when analyzed, there is also the config files that reads in the data sets.

At the moment i have to run one set of data, then go in and manually change the input file location, and run again. But, doing this, even though a different data set, the new set overwrites the old set in one of the output folders. So i need a way to increment the output filenames after they are written and before the program is run again with the new data set.

Ubuntu :: Program To Rename Many Files At Once?

Nov 8, 2010

I guess the title says it all. I'm looking for a program that will rename a massive amount of files at once. JPGs specifically, or PNGs. More specifically,I'm creating a stopmotion movie. Using the program StopMotion. And for that, all you pictures, or frames, have to be named 001.jpg 002.jpg and so on. I've got about 300 or so images, and they're all named the default thing that my camera names them, you know, like DSCIM8520 or whatever. I'm looking for maybe a command line program or GUI is fine too, that will do this for me.

Ubuntu :: Rename Files - Add Number To All In Folder ?

Feb 14, 2010

Getting together a script that will add numbers to all the files in a folder.

I've ripped most of my CDs to oggs for my new pmp, but I found that the pmp doesn't like files that are numbered just as 1 and 2, as it thinks that the 2 is more than 10.

So instead of going through all of my music folders and renaming every file by hand from 1 to 01 and from 2 to 02, I'd ask if there's a script that can be executed to add these numbers for me. It'd be even better if it only added the number to the files with only one digit.

Here's an example:

I want to rename:

And I'd like to do it to all single-digit files lower than 10 in the folder, if possible. If not, I can isolate them by hand.

Ubuntu :: Rename Files In A Directory Randomly?

Jun 19, 2010

I want to rename all files in a directory to "random" names(the point is that the name does not exist, it can be anything). In my case is it *.wav file i want to rename, i basically want to burn cd's to my pc with cdparanoia, then rename them and put them in a directory with other songs i have which also have been given random names. (i'm creating a big music directory where the songs have no names)And i will eventually make a script to make things easier, but for some reason i can't think out a way to rename the files randomly, and i guess "$RANDOM" is a good variable to use but.. how?EDIT: And while i'm at it, is there any way to use the "play" command in the terminal, by "sorting" music files in a directory randomly, and then play them, so it will not be played the same order again?

Ubuntu :: Rename Hundreds Of .picasa.ini Files?

Sep 11, 2010

In my photos folder, I have hundreds of folders, each with Picasa.ini files.

Unfortunately, a lot of these files are actually ".picasa.ini" files & Picasa 3.0 does not recognize them.

All I want to do is rename all those ".picasa.ini" files to "Picasa.ini".

If there was a GUI way to do this, all in one go, then that would be my prefered method.

I couldn't find one, so reluctantly tried Terminal. After a lot of reading & trying, still no success.

"locate .picasa.ini" finds all the files easily.

I tried many variants around: "rename -v -n 's/.picasa.ini$/Picasa.ini/' .picasa.ini" to run a simulation without screwing anything up yet, but at best they only seem to rename one occurence, not all the files.

Ubuntu :: Rename And Save Multiple Files?

Feb 22, 2011

I am quite new to script programming and I am facing an uphill task to rename files in one folder. I have gone through similar posts but most of them deal with renaming files by changing the file extensions.Problem : I have a folder which contains files like bild01.jpg,bild02.jpg. There are more files in the folders which should remain untouched. I want to rename these 'bild' files as follows:

bild01.jpg -----> 1c.jpg
bild02.jpg -----> 2c.jpg
bild30.jpg------>30c.jpg
I would like to create a script as:
#!/bin/bash
npics=`ls -1 bild*| wc -l`

General :: Script To Rename Files Recursively?

May 8, 2011

I'm planning to writing a script to rename files recursively.

To be said that I'm using /bin/sh (not /bin/bash) as this is the only shell available on the busybox of the linux router (tomato) I'm using.

Basically I would like to rename files with extension .jpg using as a suffix the filename of another file in the very same directory with extension .avi

The reason for this is because pretty much all the DLNA devices like modern TV playing .avi files will display a thumbnail of the video when browsing the filesystem, however to do so they'll need .jpg image wit hthe same filename of the video in the very same directory.

General :: Make A Script To Rename All The Files?

Feb 10, 2010

I'm currently trying to make a script to rename all the files with one provided file extension to a second provided file extension. I've achieved this by commanding "sh newext doc txt" with the following which works perfectly:

#!/bin/sh
for f in *$1;
do
mv "$f" "`basename "$f" $1`$2";
done;

However, I'd like to be able to modify what I've written so far, so that I can choose whether to convert file extensions in a subdirectory or not. For example, I could enter "sh newext -r doc txt" and the subdirectory's files would also be affected by my script, or enter "sh newext -n doc txt" which would only affect the directory I'm in.

General :: Script To Rename Files According To Filetype?

Jan 21, 2010

I get a bit lazy using cUrl, often letting downloads go without adding the proper extension to images and whatnot. Yes I know about the -O flag, but I'm the kind who likes to give my files unique names right off the bat (until they puzzle out a way to "stamp" files with originating URLs across platforms, Classic MacOS Web-browser style, curl -o is the way to go). So I was hoping someone could help me write a script (bash or python, doesn't matter which) that used the file command to look inside files in a single directory and then rename the ones it happened across that didn't have a 3- or 4-letter extension, appending the one that corresponded with the mime type. But this action only to be performed on files with no extension.

I know Linux and Unix don't bother much with extensions. I started home computing on a Mac IIcx -- that kind of intuition is beyond natural for me and very much appreciated. But I, and a few of my friends and family, alsose Windows where file extensions are an idiot-proof way, if nothing else good can be said about the two, to get file X to open in application Y and not Q, W or Z (or, worse for some, no application at all).I've seen a few scripts in different places, but they all seem to have the flaw of renaming files that already have an extension

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.

OpenSUSE Network :: Don't Have The Right Permissions With The Client To Rename Files

Jan 30, 2011

I just performed a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.3 and ISPConfig 3 on my server. I read through the article "The Perfect Server - openSUSE 11.3 x86_64 [ISPConfig 3]" and followed the instructions closely. Everything went smoothly.

I went into ISPConfig 3 and set up a DNS zone, email mailbox, FTP client, and website all for a client I created, hoping to use the client as the main account for a web site I want to host on my server. After I finished with this, I logged onto the server through FileZilla using my newly created client's information. It took me to the "main directory" with the folders cgi-bin, log, ssl, tmp, and web. When I open "web" I see an html file named "index.html."

I tried loading a mock website into the folder, also with an index.html file, and the files transferred over properly except the mock index.html file. The program changed the name to index.html.1. I tried to delete the original index.html file but was not allowed to. I then tried to rename it to something other than index.html and kept receiving a 550 Rename/move failure message. Can anyone point me in the right direction or help me resolve this issue?

I'm thinking perhaps I don't have the right permissions with the client to rename files, but since that's the account I want as the "owner" of this web site, I need to change the permissions so I can. I tried changing the ISPConfig 3 "Limits" for the account to SSH-Chroot Options "NONE" thinking that might be the issue.
