Bash - changing files (using functions with counter in loop)

Posted on Fri 01 January 2010

This script add to HTML file strings from another file. And check if these strings already exist.

#!/bin/bash
AddNewString()
{
stringN="`sed -n ''"$stringNum"'p' $HTMLFILE`"
if [ "$stringN" != "$stringA" ]; then
  sed -i ''"$stringNum"'i'"$stringA"'' $HTMLFILE
fi
return 1
}
echo "Starting update ..."
echo "Starting deletion ..."
file="./xen-centos.html"
file_for_replace="./new-header.html" echo "Strings were deleted"
echo "Starting addition ..." FILELIST="/tmp/phn-site-update-temp-file-list.txt"
find ./khmel.org/ -name "*.html" | grep -v -e index.html -e notes.html -e links.html -e about.html > $FILELIST
while read HTMLFILE
do
    stringNum=1
    echo "Changing of: $HTMLFILE"
    while read Line
    do
        sed 's///' $HTMLFILE 1>/dev/null
        sed 's///' $HTMLFILE 1>/dev/null
        stringA="$Line"
        AddNewString $HTMLFILE $stringA $stringNum
        let stringNum=stringNum+1
done < $file_for_replace
done < $FILELIST
rm -f $FILELIST
echo "Update Finished"
