I am struggling with a substitution in multiple files by using shell scripting and I would appreciate if anyone could help.
So, I have 100 folders each of them include a file called script.txt and script2.txt. the file script.txt has and 100include files that have the same name like the folders. So, for example if I have the folders
A, B and C
then the script.txt will include 3lines such as:
I want for each folder (A, B and C) to create script2.txt which will substitute *include A with $include A, respectively for each folder.
so for folder A, I will have script2.txt
I tried the followed script:
for name in *
find . -iname '*_' |sed 's/^..//' | while read line;
if [ "$line" != "$name" ]
perl -pe 's/\*include $line/\$include $line/' $name/HyperDM.gms > $name/HyperDM_scen0.gms
but it is substituting "*" with "$" in each file for all the lines. could someone help me? I think i should probably close earlier a loop, but I am totally confused and cannot solve it.
