Smile list pwd sub-directories that have *.lst files


I need a script that will do the fallowing:

Start with the PWD and find a sub-directory with a *.lst file in it and count the number of *.lst
files and sum their bytes. then output the files, bytes, and directory sorted from smallest
two largest number of files. In the below example the ad directory has 20 files that consume
4.8m of disk space.

NOTE: The admin sub-directory tree does not have any *.lst files in it. That is why
it is not in the output even though it is a sub-directory to the PWD.

files bytes directory
-------- ----- -----------------------------
20 4.8m /app/oracle/agent11g/ldap/schema/ad/
220 32m /app/oracle/agent11g/ldap/schema/oid/
350 483m /app/oracle/agent11g/plsql/
428 572m /product/11.2.0.2.3/bin
560 1032m /diag/SEAPRRS/RPT

We'll be glad to help...so post what you've written/tried so far, and tell us where you're stuck. But this isn't the place to come to have your homework done for you.

I'll give you a few hints.

The find command can find directories. It can also find files matching a pattern like *.lst

The wc command can be used to count items in a list.

The sort command can be used to sort a list.

The du command can total up file sizes.

Lists can be processed with a "while read" loop, like I showed you in answering your other post:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
find . -maxdepth 1 -mindepth 1 -type d | while read -r file
do
du -sh "$file"
done
Good luck! We're here to help.
