I have a command to replace the non printable characters and single quotes from a file but its taking more time to execute as I am replacing these characters for multiple files and the files size is around 30GB.
LANG=iso-8859-1 sed -i 's/[^[:print:]]//g;s/'\''//g;s/'//g' $path/EID*_$1.xml
$1 passing through parameters. How can I make the process run faster and is there any other command which I can use? I heard
tr command is faster compare to
sed but how can I use the
tr command in my situation. (
tr command in single line for all the files).
I tried this command:
LANG=iso-8859-1 sed 's/[^[:print:]]//g;s/'\''//g;s/'//g' < $path/EID123_$1.xml > $path/EID123_$1_new.xml mv -f $path/EID123_$1_new.xml EID123_$1.xml LANG=iso-8859-1 sed 's/[^[:print:]]//g;s/'\''//g;s/'//g' < $path/EID456_$1.xml > $path/EID456_$1_new.xml; mv -f $path/EID456_$1_new.xml EID456_$1.xml
for each single files without i option but its not giving the expected result and I could still see the non printable characters in file.
