  • Not getting any ouput when running Linux bash script

    My friend and I are working on a scripting project that involves Bash. Here's what our script looks like: #!/bin/bash VAR1="$1" VAR2="$2" MOREF='sudo run command against $VAR1 | grep name | cut -c7-' echo $MOREF But when we run the script from the command line and pass it through the arguments,...

  • How to go back to a previous directory in Bash

    Would there be a way to actually go back to a previous directory that we were using in Bash, without using pushd/popd? We're hoping for something like "back" so it returns us back to the directory that we were previously in.

  • Linux: Chmod 755 all directories but no file

    In Linux, how can I chmod 755 all directories but with no file (recursively)? Also, I'm looking to do the opposite too: Chmod only files with no directory. Thanks so much.

  • Linux: Redirecting output to a file

    I understand in Linux that to redirect the output from a screen to one of my files, I can use either the > or tee. But I can't figure out why the output is actually still the output to the screen (and now written to the file). Would there be a way to redirect the output just to the file?

  • Bash: How to avoid the split on spaces

    In Bash, I'm trying to iterate over a list of files. I know the list is the result of a "find" command, so I came up with this: getlist() { for f in $(find . -iname "foo*") do echo "File found: $f" # do something useful done } It works fine until a file has spaces in its name. $ ls foo_bar_baz.txt...

  • Determine the script file name in a Bash script

    Would there be a way to determine name of a Bash script that's actually inside the script itself. Here's an example: If my script is in the file "runme.sh", then how would I make it display as "You are running runme.sh" message (without any hardcoding)?
