Top Forums UNIX for Beginners Questions & Answers How to copy particular files from a multiple directories and paste in a new directory? Post 303042512 by rbatte1 on Friday 27th of December 2019 12:15:07 PM
Old 12-27-2019
Okay, I'm sure we can help with that. A few questions for clarity though:-
  • Must the filename in the fastconcatg directory be the prefix of the directory that the source was found in?
  • What do we do for a directory that doesn't have a file of that name in it? We could leave an empty marker file, miss it completely or perhaps something else.

If your source files would be found be the command ls -l org*/dnaG.fasta then that's good. The problem about so many files is that you might exceed the command line length, but we can work on that if it become a problem.

For every directory/file found, the logic could be something like:-
  • Get the directory part
  • Get the number from the directory part
  • Copy the file to the target directory with the source directory number as a prefix

Does that match your need or have I missed the point?

Do you have any further attempts yourself that we can work through?



Kind regards,
Robin

cachefspack(1M) 					  System Administration Commands					   cachefspack(1M)

NAME
cachefspack - pack files and file systems in the cache SYNOPSIS
cachefspack [-h] [-i | -p | -u] [-f packing-list] [-U cache-directory] [file]... DESCRIPTION
The cachefspack utility is used to set up and maintain files in the cache. This utility affords greater control over the cache, ensuring that the specified files are in the cache whenever possible. cachefspack does not pack files when the backfileystem type for the cachefs mount is NFSv4. This is because only pass-through support is available for cachefs with NFSv4. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -f packing-list Specify a file containing a list of files and directories to be packed. Options within subdirectories and files can also be specified. The format and rules governing packing-list are described on the packingrules(4) manual page. Directories are packed recursively. Symlinks that match a regular expression on a LIST command are followed. Symlinks encountered while recursively processing directories are not followed. -h Help. Print a brief summary of all the options. -i View information about the packed files. -p Pack the file or files specified by file. This is the default behavior. -u Unpack the file or files specified by file. -U cache-directory Unpack all files in the specified cache directory. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: file A path name of a file to be packed or unpacked. USAGE
See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of cachefspack when encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2^31 bytes). EXAMPLES
Example 1 Packing a File in the Cache The following example packs the file projects in the cache: % cachefspack -p projects Example 2 Packint Files in the Cache The following example packs the files projects, updates, and master_plan in the cache: % cachefspack -p projects updates master_plan Example 3 Unpacking a File From the Cache The following example unpacks the file projects from the cache: % cachefspack -u projects Example 4 Unpacking Files From the Cache The following example unpacks the files projects, updates, and master_plan from the cache: % cachefspack -u projects updates master_plan Example 5 Unpacking All Files From in a Cache Directory The following example unpacks all files in the cache directory cache1: % cachefspack -U /cache/cache1 Example 6 Using a Packing List The following example illustrates the use of a packing list to specify files to be packed in the cache. The contents of lists.pkg are as follows: IGNORE SCCS BASE /src/junk LIST *.c LIST *.h The following command packs all files in the /src/junk directory which have .c and .h extensions, and do contain the string SCCS in the file's path name: % cachefspack -f lists.pkg EXIT STATUS
0 Successful completion. >0 An error occurred. ATTRIBUTES
