  • Problem: you want to output one line per file. you can't just 'tr -d' because you want one line per file and you don't want to use a loop. Solution: use awk to print each line without the record separator and a newline after each file. Show Sample Output


    -1
    awk 'BEGIN{ORS=""}NR!=1&&FNR==1{print "\n"}{print}END{print "\n"}' *.txt

  • grep 'HOME.*' data.txt | awk '{print $2}' | awk '{FS="/"}{print $NF}' OR awk '/HOME/ {print $2}' data.txt | awk -F'/' '{print $NF}' In this example, we are having a text file that is having several entries like: --- c1 c2 c3 c4 this is some data HOME /dir1/dir2/.../dirN/somefile1.xml HOME /dir1/dir2/somefile2.xml some more data --- for lines starting with HOME, we are extracting the second field that is a 'file path with file name', and from that we need to get the filename only and ignore the slash delimited path. The output would be: somefile1.xml somefile2.xml (In case you give a -ive - pls give the reasons as well and enlighten the souls :-) )


    -3
    grep 'HOME.*' data.txt | awk '{print $2}' | awk '{FS="/"}{print $NF}' OR USE ALTERNATE WAY awk '/HOME/ {print $2}' data.txt | awk -F'/' '{print $NF}'

  • Thanks to knoppix5 for the idea :-) Print selected lines from a file or the output of a command. Usage: every NTH MAX [FILE] Print every NTH line (from the first MAX lines) of FILE. If FILE is omitted, stdin is used. The command simply passes the input to a sed script: sed -n -e "${2}q" -e "0~${1}p" ${3:-/dev/stdin} print no output sed -n quit after this many lines (controlled by the second parameter) -e "${2}q" print every NTH line (controlled by the first parameter) -e "0~${1}p" take input from $3 (if it exists) otherwise use /dev/stdin {3:-/dev/stdin} Show Sample Output

    function every() { sed -n -e "${2}q" -e "0~${1}p" ${3:-/dev/stdin}; }
