http://www.unix.com – Hi, I have been working on a punch of codes and I got to a problem I hope to get help on. I have some files that I want to work with but the folder has other files in it. For example: The folder contains these files: Code: path to files : /home/distribution/ Code: ls : b.10; b.11; b.12; b.20; b.222; b.1111; b.212 Each of these files have elements within it i.e, they are not empty. I want to select the files (also with their content) that start with the following lines in another file, then send to another folder: Code: path to file : /home/distribution/filen (HowTos)
