Goal: Output .txt file with the full directory path, including name, of all .html files except for those with "txt" or "text" in the .html file name.
I found the following line gives me the desired .txt file with the file's full directory path. The only problem is that it gives me ALL of the folder's contents:
ls -d "$PWD"/* > fileList.txt
/Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/notes.txt /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/index.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/index-TEXT.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/answers.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/answers_txt.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/image.jpg /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/image2.jpg /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/about.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/about_TXT.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/contact.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/contact_text.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/images
/Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/index.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/answers.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/about.html /Users/username/Desktop/WebsiteFiles/contact.html
I'm fairly new to using the command line. I've been experimenting trying to figure this stuff out. I found that the following find helps find all .html files:
find . -iname '*.html'
When used on the parent directory it will give me all .html files but not the full directory path, example result:
./index.html ./index-TEXT.html ./answers.html ./answers_txt.html ./about.html ./about_TXT.html ./contact.html ./contact_text.html
I'm not familiar enough with the parameters or assembling these commands and haven't been successful in getting a print of just the .html files without the ones with any of the variation of "text" in the name.
I have a ton of files to find with this and need that .txt file with the full paths. I want to understand this stuff so please provide detailed responses!
