Ubuntu :: Using The Rename Command With Ascending Numbers ?

Mar 14, 2011

In a moment of madness I decided to reorganise my mp3 player. I am putting everything into one folder (called 'all'), but first I am renaming the files to the following format:

artist ## songtitle

where ## is a number like 01, 02. This has been pretty straightforward with the songs that already started with a number, because then I could just

rename 's/(dd)/artist $1/' *.mp3

but I have a problem with those tracks that don't already have the track-numbers at the beginning. I suppose what I am asking is: can I turn

All Along the Watchtower.mp3
Purple Haze.mp3
Hey Joe.mp3


01 All Along the Watchtower.mp3
02 Purple Haze.mp3
03 Hey Joe.mp3

General :: What Command Run To Determine The IP Numbers?

Apr 20, 2011

Firstly I would like to say that Linux is very cool, especially the CLI. I have been trying to learn how to do some things in Fedora after being told Fedora was a good distro to get my feet wet. I have run into some issues and cant seem to find any answers. What Linux utility can be configured to automatically save the current logs?

How does your Fedora get an IP number? What IP numbers has your Fedora been assigned since it was installed (based on the logs you have)? What command did you run to determine the IP numbers? What command would you run to determine the number of times a user successfully used "su"? What command would you run to determine the number of times a user unsuccessfully used "su"? Having some issues with the file system as your Fedora boots up.

General :: Using Rpm Command To Count The Numbers Of License

Feb 27, 2010

I am a newbie in Linux. Here is my question....

Create the file ~/license_counts, which tables the number of occurrences of packages which are licensed under a given license, for the top 5 most commonly used licenses, sorted in numerically descending order. If performed correctly, your file should be formatted similarly to the following. (Do not be concerned if the actual counts or license names are different. Also, you might notice logically similar licenses, such as LGPL/GPL and GPL/LGPL. Do not make any attempt to combine them into a single entry.)

The resulted format:

I tried some method but cannot get it to work.

Ubuntu :: Command / Script To Rename Files In Datetime Order?

Jun 1, 2010

I'm trying to rename all files in a folder as such:


Renaming them is no problem, the problem I have is, they need to be in order of the datetime that they were taken, so that the 1.jpg would be the oldest file there. The difference in filetimes is going to be very small, around 3 or 4 tenths of a second.

The reason I need to do this is that I have another script (not quite finished yet), that takes the next three files in a loop and applies qtpfsgui to them to output an HDR image to another folder, then move on to 4,5 & 6, and: repeat.

General :: Rename Command Using Random Variables?

Apr 14, 2010

I'm trying to clean up some files and I've been using the rename command as its the easiest way I've found to do it. One problem I've found is that on a couple of batches of files they have a set random numbers on them which I need to remove.

Only problem is I can't find a way for rename to "lock" onto those numbers to remove them. The file name structure is something like this:

file name[random numbers].extension

There are brackets around the numbers as well which I'm not sure will help or not.

Ubuntu :: Correct Usage Of Perl Expression In 'rename'-shell Command

Jan 21, 2011

I want to rename some files in one directory and found the command 'rename' most appropriate.

Changing the file extension is easy since there are lot of examples for this.

But now I want to rename my files like this:

'somePrefix_blablabla.ext' --> '0_blablabla.ext'
'somePrefix_blablablablabla.ext' --> '0_blablablablabla.ext'

I DON'T want an incrementation, just the leading prefix '0_'

correct perl expression syntax for this?

Programming :: Multiple Input Into Seq Command From Pipe - Single Column Unique Numbers

May 13, 2011

Have this script which is reading in a series of files, one at a time with while-do-done loop, each file goes through various greps/awk's where this info is then saved to various files for later use. i.e....

Script is being run on Linux Red Hat,

In one of the grep/awk's the output (currently) are 2 columns (min max), i.e....| awk '{print $1, $2}' | sort -u which outputs (e.g.)

The number of "min max" pairs varies from file to file. Want to output a single column of unique numbers from the min max pairs & get the number of them for input to a file...i.e...

Where <PROCESS> is some process/technique that will generate a single column of integers (increment of 1) to pipe into the next one (sort -u)

i.e. (example from above)

Have tried command seq - only works for single pair input i.e.

Is there any command like seq etc which will output a single column based on a input of min max numbers (increment 1) to pipe onwards to next command?
