hey everyone howz it oging? am a complete noooooooooob to shell programming. i saw a few codes and applications and i already feel like running away lol i like my programming but with like java, vb, vb.net and even C++ but this hear looks all too new for me. so i decided i'd take it step by step like in java, the first prg they teach u is how to print HELLO WORLD so i do the same in bash. ok so here's my prb. say am in a directory and i want to find out how man files are jpegs and exe. like the result would b cout<<u have 10 jpegs and 5 exe
how do i get the name of a file and how do i check if it's an exe or not? a jpeg or not?
can someone just write a loop for this? a few lines checking if files are jpeg or not. no it's not an assignment although if u find it somewhere plz tell me lol cuz i'd rather read about it then ask
anything u can offer be it a complete answer or link or anything would b most appreciated. thnx and good day ^_^
ps. i think i put this in the wrong place but i wasnt so sure. sorry. didnt know if it were here or in general linux and id idnt want to double post on my first day lol
Maybe this... not sure what you are wanting:
well i'll check when i get back home. hey do u go online often? firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
mayb we can chat then and talk about this. am out right helping some friends with work. thnx for the reply. hope i get to talk to ya online soon.
Better yet just use file without ls. Go to any directory you are interested in and type:Add a | grep -v directory to the end to only get a list of files (instead of files and directories). I'm online, but the easiest way to communicate is right here through these forums since I never know when I'll be on. Responding to posts is easy and can happen at any time (especially since I'm at work most of the day).
ok thnx a lot for ur help. as soon as iget back home i'll get on and see if u'r there. thnx again i look fwd to this.
hey howz it going? i tried to pm u but i got no reply. i just got back. been hard. merry christmas. so umm i hope u reply back cuz i finally am back to my good ol beautiful pc :D and i got access now. still havent forgotten about my linux prb. how u too :D
