Thank you for your reply. The code that you gave is OK but If some filename is not start with test so what I should do?

The ls solution assumes the files exist. What if they don't?

awk -F/ '{ print $NF }' list_of_files.txt

If you are building the first file with the names in it just so you can extract the filenames, then you could skip that step with this:

me@mine:~$ find ./foo -type f -exec basename {} \;

# This finds all files in my foo directory and 'basename' retrieves just the file part.
