  • seq allows you to format the output thanks to the -f option. This is very useful if you want to rename your files to the same format in order to be able to easily sort for example: for i in `seq 1 3 10`; do touch foo$i ;done And ls foo* | sort -n foo1 foo10 foo4 foo7 But: for i in `seq -f %02g 1 3 10`; do touch foo$i ;done So ls foo* | sort -n foo01 foo04 foo07 foo10 Show Sample Output

    for i in `seq -f %03g 5 50 111`; do echo $i ; done

  • First, we convert the VMware avi (VMnc format) to the Microsoft avi format. Next, we convert the Microsoft avi format to FLV format. You can play around with the -r switch (rate per second) and the -b switch (bitrate). But, if those get larger, so does your FLV file.
