I have a directory with folders sequentially numbered 1-1000, however I want to perform an action for some of the folders in this directory. i.e folders 1-50. How do I define the start and end point of the loop?
So far I have a script along these lines:
a=1 b=1 for i in ~/PATH/*/ ;do (cd $i/ && action) echo "completed" a=`expr $a + $b` echo "Next Folder" done
I can define the start of the loop by changing a= but I am not sure how to define the end to the loop? As it stands, it will keep going through all the folders in that directory. Thanks :)
