I am working on writing a bash script which takes multiple files as input and display the top ‘n’ most frequently occurring words in descending order for each of file.
I figured out how to count the frequency of words for 1 file but I am unable to figure out how I will deal when I have multiple files and process them parallelly.
sed -e 's/[^[:alpha:]]/ /g' testfile.txt | tr '\n' " " | tr -s " " | tr " " '\n'| tr 'A-Z' 'a-z' | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | nl
this works fine for 1 file but I want to write a bash script which I can run like following:
$countWord test1.txt test2.txt test3.txt (countword here is my bash script that counts freq)
I want it to take those files as input and for each file show me something like:
===(1 51 33 test1.txt)==== # where 1: number of lines, 51: number of words, 33: number of characters 38 them 29 these 17 to 12 who
Any help in right direction is greatly appreciated. :)
