I am making a script to simplify my daily tasks. Everyday, I have to grep for a few things inside a company server. It was okay, however, now, they have segregated each object into sub directories. I am looking for a solution in which my existing shell script will execute repeatedly into each sub directory inside a certain directory. How do I do this? I am quite new to Linux and still learning the ropes.
Here's my script:
#!/bin/bash MainDir=/path/to/dir/containing/subdirs # cd into dir cd $MainDir for dir in $(ls); do #fetch start time of uut grep -i "01_node_setup" $dir/his_file | tail -1 >> /home/xtee/sst-logs.out #check if sysconfig.out exists if [ -f $dir/sysconfig.out]; then grep -A 1 "Drive Model" $dir/sysconfig.out | tail -1 >> /home/xtee/sst-logs.out else grep -m 1 "Pair0 DIMM0" $dir/node0/trans_file_prev/*setupsys* | tail -1 >> /home/xtee/sst-logs.out fi done #cd back to where we started cd $OLDPWD
A nice guy helped me with the script, and the script above is what came out. It worked alright however, the sst-logs.out file displays
binary file /some/subdirectory/ instead of the output of the grep. What is wrong in the script?
