Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Removing part of a file name and appending into a single file Post 302635337 by varlax on Friday 4th of May 2012 04:08:22 PM
Okie.. i want to remove the dynamic date part of both the files and merge it to a single file abc_def_xxx.txt.

To be specific, this is being used in a shell script that will pass the initial name of the file ( say abc_def.txt). Now my search directory woud be having some files with the pattern, abc_def_yyyymmdd_hhmiss_XXX.txt . So i need to search the directory for this pattern. once the files are found in the target directory, i need to merge thses files into a single file which will be named as abc_def_xxx.txt.

Hope i am clear this time. Please suggest how to get this accomplished

NAME
ecaccess-file-move - Move or Rename ECaccess Files SYNOPSIS
ecaccess-file-move -version|-help|-manual ecaccess-file-move [-debug] source-ecaccess-file target-ecaccess-file DESCRIPTION
Allow moving an ECaccess File. When the move occurs within the same ECaccess File System then it is a rename. When the move occurs across two different ECaccess File Systems then first a copy is done and then a delete of the original file is done (e.g. similar to ecaccess- file-copy ... -erase). The source-ecaccess-file and target-ecaccess-file are in the form [domain:][/user-id/]path. Please read the "Shell commands -> File Management" section of the "ecaccess" guide for more information on the ECaccess File System. ARGUMENTS
source-ecaccess-file The source ECaccess File name. target-ecaccess-file The target ECaccess File name. OPTIONS
-version Display version number and exits. -help Print a brief help message and exits. -manual Prints the manual page and exits. -debug Display the SOAP messages exchanged. EXAMPLES
ecaccess-file-move ec:test1.txt ec:test2.txt Rename the test1.txt file in the ECFS directory of the authenticated user in test2.txt. ecaccess-file-move ec:test1.txt home:test2.txt Copy the test1.txt file from the ECFS directory of the authenticated user to the test2.txt file in the $HOME directory of the authenticated user, then delete the test1.txt file from ECFS.
