I'm trying to copy directories of data sets that pertain to the a certain case but the data sets are currently stored in different directories and with different (non consecutive) numbered file.
e.g. I have a case file
case_directory/006 and I want to copy and create
case_directory/006/MRS from where that case's
MRS directory is currently stored in
data_directory/150/MRS. The next case would be
case_directory/010 and for that I would want to copy
data_directory/155/MRS - just to illustrate there is really no relation between the numbering systems. I have about 120 of such case directories so would be great to automate the copying process from the matching data directory! :-/
Can I automate this using the
cat commands and text files containing lists where the matching numbers are on the same row in each text file? can you use more than 1 variable with
for or do I need to use a more complicated script?
