Need help with script to replace certain text in file with part of the file's name
I have a directory with about 16,000 files with this format:
In some of the files there are more or fewer sequences but the definition line always begins with a > symbol. The files are all named like "Moll_10000.fasta", "Moll_10001.fasta" and so on...
I am trying to write a script that reads the name of each file, strips out the number portion of the name ($NUMBER), and replaces all instances of ">" with ">$NUMBER|".
Here is what I tried (but didn't work). Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!!!
