Check for files and move it to another directory - ksh

I'm trying to wirte ksh script for given requirement, but i unable to achive it.

In dir1 directory I need to check for the files which suffixed with .csv or .txt, If there is no files, then i need to exit. If any files found I need to move the each file found to dir2 directory. I have to repeat this for each file found.

Code:
#####sample code#######

a=/kayal/dir1
b=/kayal/dir2
ls -ltr | egrep -i '*.csvg|*.txt'| awk '{print $NF}'|while read filename
do
count=cat $filename|wc -l
done
if [ "$count" -eq 0 ]
then
echo "No files found , exiting RC=0"
RC=0
exit 1
elif [ "$count" -gt 0 ]
then
echo "Processing file $filename"
 if [ -d "$b" ];
              then
               cd $b
               mv $a/$filename $b/$filename
                 else
                      echo "unable $b"
                      echo "Unable to move file $filename to $b"
                    
             fi
    fi
fi

Please, wrap your code samples into code tags.

What are you trying to do here?
egrep -i '*.csvg|*.txt'|

Assuming your cut/paste was fine, unsure the rationale of the 'g' in 'csvg'
And you are doing the egrep to find either of those filetypes of .csv and .txt

Or, explain more what is going wrong.

HI,

This has taken a little time to dig out, but here are a couple of scripts that should do what you want - modify them as you please - and use at your own risk.

The fist shell is a general purpose logger and should sit in /usr/local/bin or somewhere similar depending on your system setup.

Code:
#!/usr/bin/bash
###############################################################################
#
# This shell used to write system log file.
#
###############################################################################
###############################################################################
#
# Script information.
#
###############################################################################
#
# Script :    logger.sh
# Author :
# Date   :
# Version:    1.00.00
#
###############################################################################
#
# If $LOG not set up then writes to live daily LOG file in a default daily log.
#
###############################################################################
#
# This script should be resident in the users bin directory and should be
# excutable, it will either inherit a $LOG variable from the calling script or
# failing that will create it's own log in the /var/log directory.
#
###############################################################################
#
# If $LOG not set up then writes to live daily LOG file in the location below.
#
###############################################################################
if [ ${LOG} ]
then
:
else
    LOG="/export/home/e415243/logs/general_log`date +%Y``date +%m%d`"
    export LOG
fi
MSG="`date '+%d %b %T'`  $*"
###############################################################################
#
# Make sure that we can write to the logfile if it exists.
#
###############################################################################
if [ -f ${LOG} ]
then
:
else
    touch ${LOG}
    chmod 666 ${LOG}
fi
###############################################################################
#
# If we can't write to the logfile lets tell someone, anyone will do!
#
###############################################################################
if echo "`date '+%d %b %T'`  $*"  >> ${LOG}
then
:
else
    ERROR=$?
    echo "logger.sh FAILED TO WRITE TO LOG FILE, error=${ERROR}"
    exit ${ERROR}
fi

This next scipt does what you want - I think. But it will need to be setup for your source and target directories. You will have to refine the error checking and logging to suit your environment.

Code:
#!/usr/bin/bash

Should a plain find / exec work, regardless of the shell and OS ?
Code:
DIR1=/your/source
DIR2=/your/dest
find $DIR1 -type f -name "*.[CcTt][SsXx][VvTt]" -print -exec mv {} $DIR2 \;

Test and / or reporting could be done using a report file and testing against it.
Notice the -print, which will print found files if there are any.
