Using awk: awk ' BEGIN { fields[1] fields[3] fields[4] fields[5] fields[6] fields[7] last_field=8 } ( NR%21 in fields ) { printf($0",") } NR%21==last_field' in_file.txt Or better yet: awk ' NR%21 ~ /^(1|3|4|5|6|7)$/ { printf($0",") } NR%21==8' in_file.txt GNU sed has a nice extension to match the nth line after a ...

Your problem is that you try to enter C code into a shell prompt, this doesn't work for obvious reasons. You could either put it into a correct C file, compile it and get a valid binary you could execute: #include <linux/kd.h> #include <sys/ioctl.h> #include <fcntl.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <err.h> #include ...

You can only use mv to move multiple files to a single directory in on call. One option here is to use prename (rename is linked to this on most systems, but not all): prename -n 's/download$/html/' -- *.download Remove -n when you are sure this is doing what you want. Another way is simply to use a loop: for file in *.download; do mv -i -- "$file" ...

Here's one way: $ perl -000ne '@f=split(/\n/); print join(",",@f[0,2..7]) , "\n"' file.txt 1500,18,02,09,47,17,45 1501,27,54,28,50,22,03 Explanation: -000 : activates "paragraph mode", it sets perl's field delimiter to \n\n, consecutive newlines. This means that it will treat each of your records as a single line. @f=split(/\n/); : split the current ...

In the OSX 1.9 pppd source code, I found this in Helpers/pppd/pppd.h: #ifdef __APPLE__ #define EXIT_TERMINAL_FAILED 20 #define EXIT_DEVICE_ERROR 21 #endif #ifdef MAXOCTETS #ifdef __APPLE__ #define EXIT_TRAFFIC_LIMIT 22 #else #define EXIT_TRAFFIC_LIMIT 20 #define EXIT_CNID_AUTH_FAILED 21 #endif #endif #ifdef __APPLE__ #define ...

From this link titled: Subject: Re: omitting duplicates in apropos and apropos-list - msg#00017, I found the information below. "Because a symbol might be available by way of more than one inheritance path, apropos might print information about the same symbol more than once, or apropos-list might return a list containing duplicate symbols." I ...

That C code would not work anyway -- fdopen() requires more than one argument and returns a file stream, not a file descriptor. I can remember doing this a few years ago, I thought via Xlib, but I could not find my old code (occasionally the collection gets purged) but I figured someone must have a simple app for this on github or something. Low and ...

Short story: don't use setuid shell scripts (or any setuid/setgid script). Long story: Allow setuid on shell scripts Solution: invoke the command using sudo. sudo arp -s 198.51.100.1 00:53:00:12:34:56 To allow the user steven to run this command without entering a password, run visudo and add the following line: steven ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: arp -s ...

mv doesn't work this way. You need another tool like rename or mmv. Please mind that there are two versions of rename around. And, of course, the shell can do that (with mv): for file in *.download; do fbasename="${file%.download}" if [ -e "${fbasename}.html" ]; then echo "${fbasename}.html exists; skipping." echo "${fbasename}.html exists; ...
