"[Solved] take name of directory and files as variables"

Post #302575338 by vbe on Monday 21st of November 2011 10:40:01 AM

Yes Smilie

So I will make you work on your script:
Here is how I would write the script (just little modifications for...) in order to see what is happening so you can understand and try to debug:

Code:
vi sample0001


#!/bin/sh -x
echo "======================"
echo " Start of  sample0001 "
echo "======================"

dir=~/Documents/Scripts/Copy

for i in $(pwd) $(ls)
do
   echo "$i"
   if [ -d $dir ]; then
      echo "\$2: " $2
      echo "idr : " $dir
      cp $2 $dir
      echo " $2 copied to directory $dir "
   else
      mkdir Copy && cp $2 $dir
      echo "line 18 -  $2 copied to directory $dir "
   fi
   echo next
   read kyb
done

Feel free to ask what is not clear to you...

GLOBUS-UPDATE-CERT(8)					      GSI-C OpenSSL Commands					     GLOBUS-UPDATE-CERT(8)

NAME
globus-update-certificate-dir - Update symlinks in the trusted CA directory SYNOPSIS
globus-update-certificate-dir [-help] [-d DIRECTORY] DESCRIPTION
The globus-update-certificate-dir program creates symlinks between files (CA certificates, certificate revocation lists, signing policy, and certificate request configuration files) using the certificate hash the installed version of OpenSSL uses. OpenSSL 1.0.0 uses a different name hashing algorithm than previous versions, so CA distributions created with older versions of OpenSSL might not be able to locate trusted CAs and related files. Running globus-update-certificate-dir against a trusted CA directory will add symlinks to the files to the hash if needed. The full set of command-line options to globus-update-certificate-dir consists of: -help Display a help message to standard output and exit -d DIRECTORY Create links in the trusted CA directory DIRECTORY instead of using the default search path. ENVIRONMENT
If the following variables affect the execution of globus-update-certificate-dir X509_CERT_DIR Default trusted certificate directory. HOME Path to the current user's home directory. GLOBUS_LOCATION Path to the Globus installation. University of Chicago 02/18/2010 GLOBUS-UPDATE-CERT(8)
