Create a script to display file name, Inode, and size of any file. Has to be a script


This is what I have so far:

FILE="$1"
if [ $# -eq 0 ]; then
echo "$(The filename is: $0) - file-name"
exit 1
fi

set temp = `ls -l $fileName`
set size = $temp[4]

if (! -d $file)
set temp = `ls-l $file`
bytes = $bytes + $temp[4]
fi
echo "Total size = $bytes bytes."


textArray[0]="" # hold text
c=0 # counter
# read whole file in loop
while read line
do
textArray[c]=$line # store line
c=$(expr $c + 1) # increase counter by 1
done < $FILE
# get length of array
len=$(expr $c - 1 )

# use for loop to reverse the array
for (( i=$len; i>=0; i-- ));
do
echo ${textArray[$i]}
done

I created this in VI. I want to be able to display the filename, size, and Inode. Can anyone direct me?

"man stat" would be a good start.

How about this:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
/bin/ls -1ish "$1"

or

Code:
#!/bin/sh
if [ -f "$1" ]; then file=`readlink -f "$1"`
 attrib=`stat -c "inode:%i size:%s" "${file}"` 
 echo "file:${file:=ERROR} ${attrib:=ERROR}"
else echo "This is soo bad, its a crime."; fi
exit 0

It is that simple? I did all that and it can be compiled into one line?

'man ls' will explain the options, but yes, it's just a one line script.

I ran this code, but didn't get any file information:

#!/bin/sh
if [ -f "$1" ]; then file=`readlink -f "$1"`
attrib=`stat -c "inode:%i size:%s" "${file}"`
echo "file:${file:=ERROR} ${attrib:=ERROR}"
else echo "This is soo bad, its a crime."; fi
exit 0

You have to supply a /path/to/file as argument:
Code:
sh /tmp/script.sh /tmp/adore.o
file:/tmp/adore.o inode:20666 size:9321
