Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers How can I automatically find important files??? Post 19888 by Kelam_Magnus on Wednesday 17th of April 2002 04:17:18 PM

I will answer the last question first.

You can add that directory to your root PATH or your user's PATH in the .profile.

Regarding the other questions. Put your files in directory, probably under /etc somewhere, since they are config files, say /etc/configfiles. Then use a for loop to test and copy with.

for name in `ls /home/*` # backtics
cd /home/$name
.... var1=`ls -l file1 file2 file3 file4 file5 |wc -l` # to only search for the files you want.
... if $var1 -eq n # where n is the number of files that should be there
... ... then exit
... ... else cp /etc/configmyfiles/* /home/$name/ # where $name is the user's home directory
... fi

I only put the ... in for neatness.

analyzer - program to analyze the music file(s) and put the data into IMMS database SYNOPSIS
analyzer filename [filename] [...] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the analyzer command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. analyzer is a second most important piece of imms suite. It takes the list of filenames with songs (currently only mp3 and ogg formats are supported), makes acoustic analysis of them and put gethered data to the database. Analysis is rather slow - it has to decode the entire file - so it will take a while, but analyzer is smart enough to skip files that have already been analyzed. analyzer is running automatically by imms plugin, but you can also run it manually to analyze your whole music collection at once to benefit from acoustic correlations immediately. You can run the analysis your whole archive using following command: find /mnt/mp3 -type f -exec analyzer {} ; For more sofisticated examples please see Tips and Tricks section of upstream homepage: http://imms.luminal.org/. FILES
Program stores it's data in $HOME/.imms/ directory. For more detailed documentation please see upstream homepage: http://imms.luminal.org/. SEE ALSO
