Question loop a directory


Hi, Guys
I want to write a shell scripting to loop through a directory's files. And do something with files.
I don't know how to do this kind of loop, any idea?

Thanks advance!

"I don't know how to do this kind of loop, any idea?"

Use the find command. You can set up the find command to drop each filename that it finds into a command.

See:
man find
