Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers Create Year directory, date subdirectory and archive the file Post 302150768 by madhunk on Wednesday 12th of December 2007 03:03:02 PM

Create Year directory, date subdirectory and archive the file


After checking all the UNIX threads, I am able to come up with a solution so far. I am working on a shell script where it moves the files to a certain directory. The conditions to check are

1) Check if the file exists in the current directory.
2) Check if the destination directory exists.
3) If the destination directory exists, then create a Year sub directory under it. If the Year sub directory already exists, then skip to the next step.
4) If the Year sub directory exists, then check if the Date sub directory exists. If it exists, move the file else create the sub directory and move it.

I did work on the script and it is erroring out. I was wondering if this is the right way to do it or is there is a better way to do it.

Please advice...

#Check Number of Parms

if [ $# -eq 3 ]
  echo ""
  echo "Start of $0"
  echo ""
  exit 1

#| Initialize Variables


FILE_SUFFIX=`date '+%Y-%m-%d-%H.%M.%S.000000'`
YEAR_DIR=${DESTDIR}/`date +%Y`
DATE_DIR=${YEAR_DIR}/`date +%Y%m%d`

#| Check for existence of the file name in the specified directory


if [ ! -s "${FILENAME}" ]
    echo "\tError: File $FILENAME Found, Archiving!"
    echo "\tError: File $FILENAME Not Found, Aborting!"
    exit 1

#| Check for existence of the Year directory in the specified destination 
#| directory. If it doesn't exist, then create it. Example: 2007


if [ ! -d "${YEAR_DIR}" ] || [ ! -w "${YEAR_DIR}" ]
    echo "\nERROR: ${YEAR_DIR} is not a directory..Making ${YEAR_DIR} one!"
    mkdir ${DIR}/${YEAR_DIR}
    echo "\nERROR: Cannot create a directory"
    exit 1

#| Check for existence of the Date directory in the Year directory under 
#| destination directory. If it doesn't exist, then create it. Example: 20071210

cd ${YEAR_DIR}

if [ ! -d "${DATE_DIR}" ] || [ ! -w "${DATE_DIR}" ]
	mkdir ${YEAR_DIR}/${DATE_DIR}
	echo "\tRenamed and appended the suffix ${FILE_SUFFIX}"     
    echo "\nERROR: ${DATE_DIR} is not a directory or is not writable"
    exit 1

echo ""
echo "End of $0"
