Hello, my name is John McPherson. I work as a contractor for the DOL, and I am trying convert some code I maintain in an application to send output files to a printer. Right now, the code( a bash script) just slowly prints the output file on the screen, and the customer wants to have it sent to the printer instead. I work on a 64-bit Oracle( Sun) system with Solaris 11 as the Operating System. I have tried the command lpr -h -l $showfl in the bash script, but that just errors off without printing. I kept searching online …

I have a machine, I have a hosting with FTP. On my venture I found out about `lftp`. And the instructions are here: http://www.dangibbs.co.uk/journal/ftp-sync-usin-linux Snippet is this: open ftp://username:password@website.com mirror -v --only-newer /home/local/path/ /website.com/public_html/ Do these things still work? Also, how do I loop it? I don't want to spam my computer with looping query, and execute 200000 mirrors in a second, when I'll update in 5 next seconds. Is there a way to make it automatic, so that I can leave it in background and let it go, I just want to update my files and have program update …

Hello everyone, I am trying to merge large number of CSV files into one, using the following "awk" command, but if I increase the number of files more than 10,000, it then gives me "argument too long" error. Can someone suggest how I can manage to go beyond the limit? I am looking to merge some ~100,000 csv files together. awk '{print $0"\t"FILENAME}' *.csv > merged.csv Thanks.

Hi group, I'm using VB.net to convert an output file (text) from a Linux based program into a file that will easily read in Notepad. I found some code in VB.net to do this conversion for UNIX that works "OK" (meaning fair but not perfect). It looks like this: txtLine = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText(RestranName) ' This begins to add the carriage returns in the appropriate places txtLine = Replace(txtLine, vbLf, vbCrLf) txtLine = Replace(txtLine, vbCr & vbCr, vbCr) txtLine = Replace(txtLine, """", "") ' This writes the line to the file My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(fileSave, txtLine, False) The only issue (it's minor) is that it …

Group, Some weeks back you helped me solve a formating issue with a text file that originates from a UNIX based program (see [https://www.daniweb.com/software-development/vbnet/threads/489626/remove-end-of-report-line-and-format-unix-text]). While reviewing this newly formated data I saw that a character was place at the beginning of each page. Thus, I assume it does set the next page. However I'd like for you to look and confirm this. But more importantly, I need to know how to insert this character into my code. Because I am merging multiple reports together, I need to add this to the end of each report that is to be merged. …

Group, I'm now having to merge several of these text files together. At the end of each of the text files is a line that says "End of Report". I need to eliminate this line completely. This code does the merge for me: RestranName = getRestranName(0) RestranName2 = getRestranName(1) System.IO.File.AppendAllText(RestranName2, System.IO.File.ReadAllText(RestranName)) These files are UNIX created and are unformated. So I'm using the following code to format it correctly: ' This reads the text file for conversion txtLine = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText(RestranName) ' This begins to add the carriage returns in the appropriate places txtLine = Replace(txtLine, vbLf, vbCrLf) txtLine = Replace(txtLine, …

I am working on a shell script that takes a single command line parameter, a file path (might be relative or absolute). The script should examine that file and print a single line consisting of the phrase: Windows ASCII if the files is an ASCII text file with CR/LF line terminators, or Something else if the file is binary or ASCII with “Unix” LF line terminators. currently I have tried the following code. #!/bin/sh file=$1 if grep -q "\r\n" $file;then echo Windows ASCII else echo Something else fi #!/bin/sh if test -f "$file" then echo Windows ASCII else echo Something …

Basically, I need to make a database viewing page and an input pag...‡ The input page must take the First name, Surname, and the age. This should be sent to a script on your server via either a GET or POST, and inserts them into a MySQL database table. This must be secure against SQL injection. The display page should be generated by another script that pulls out everything from the table, creates a HTML table, and displays it. You may use either apache or Nginx, but any scripting language can be used. Also it's for linux. Thanks for your …

Hey guys! I'm in the process of writing a bootloader and I'm having trouble printing out memory information, using 16 bit nasm I know INT 12h stores the low memory information in AX but I can't seem to print it out correctly. I'm currently trying to print it by converting to ascii, moving it into a string and printing it with INT 10h but right now I just get ASCII smiley faces. Can I get a snippet of asm on how to print the contents of AX to the screen? Thanks

This is a simple echo server that I've written while learning sockets programming. Compile the server and run it. You can connect to it using telnet like this: telnet localhost 1337 Disconnect the client by typing "/quit" without quotes.

Hi I have just replied on a post that was posted 43 years ago. My reply was also 43 years ago. I had that feeling that time just flies lately but this might be a little too fast. Or is it just some issue with unix time. This is the link to the article. http://www.daniweb.com/web-development/php/threads/461757/feedback-system-phpmysql#post2008638 EDIT: it is back to normal.

Hi. I have a noobish UNIX question. I have a password-protected section of my website for testing (named 'sandbox') and I'm trying to write output to a plain text file in that directory.

Hello, I am creating some sort of cPanel, and I want people to be able to log in using their Linux user. I installed the PAM extension, but it's functions aren't recognized/return nothing. Installing it using the `pecl` command does not work (some ./configure errors, I am not really in a mood to fix them). I've also heard of a POSIX function you could use to return a user's encrypted password, but I'd rather not use it. Permissions are no problem, I run this website as root (or I can give it the permissions it needs). Thanks in advance, Sydcul
