Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting awk to create variables to pass into a bash loop to create a download link Post 302982225 by cmccabe on Monday 26th of September 2016 10:02:18 PM
The two values are:

varA= /results/analysis/output/Home/Auto_user_S5-00580-6-Medexome_67_032/plugin_out/FileExporter_out.67

the digit between the - before Medexome is variable, but that line will match a line in the file that begins with

varB= R_2016_09_20_10_12_41_user_S5-00580-6-Medexome

Since _user_S5-00580-6-Medexome matches between those two lines

desired output

 the (...) is not part of the download link only there to help see where the data comes from   (harcoded)
varA or /output/Home/Auto_user_S5-00580-6-Medexome_67_032/plugin_out/FileExporter_out.67  [/results/analysis  is removed]
/    (harcoded)
varB or R_2016_09_20_10_12_41_user_S5-00580-6-Medexome  (harcoded)

each download link is in the format above and consists of varA and varB

If each download link can be written to the same file, after the files are downloaded and moved, maybe I can create a check to see if the download exits in the directory. I hope this helps and thank you very much Smilie.

guards - select from a list of files guarded by conditions SYNOPSIS
guards [--prefix=dir] [--path=dir2:dir2:...] [--default=0|1] [-v|--invert-match] [--list|--check] [--config=file] symbol ... DESCRIPTION
The script reads a configuration file that may contain so-called guards, file names, and comments, and writes those file names that satisfy all guards to standard output. The script takes a list of symbols as its arguments. Each line in the configuration file is processed separately. Lines may start with a number of guards. The following guards are defined: +xxx Include the file(s) on this line if the symbol xxx is defined. -xxx Exclude the file(s) on this line if the symbol xxx is defined. +!xxx Include the file(s) on this line if the symbol xxx is not defined. -!xxx Exclude the file(s) on this line if the symbol xxx is not defined. - Exclude this file. Used to avoid spurious --check messages. The guards are processed left to right. The last guard that matches determines if the file is included. If no guard is specified, the --default setting determines if the file is included. If no configuration file is specified, the script reads from standard input. The --check option is used to compare the specification file against the file system. If files are referenced in the specification that do not exist, or if files are not enlisted in the specification file warnings are printed. The --path option can be used to specify which directory or directories to scan. Multiple directories are separated by a colon (":") character. The --prefix option specifies the location of the files. AUTHOR
