Having problem while inserting new Enteries in csv file

Hi Experts,

I am trying to make new enteries in a csv file in new column but am not able to do so.Please help for the same.


There are multiple directories & within those directories i have sub-directories and i want to build a csv file with 2 columns of Directories mapped to their sub-directories. Can you please help me with this. I tried the following code:



ls ~/Parent/ | cut -c1-9 > ~/test_111.csv

while read Child


Entry="$(ls $homeDir/Parent/$Child/ABC/XYZ/DEF/PQR)"

echo $Entry

for (( c=1; c<=5; c++ ))


sed -i ci"$Entry" test_222.csv


done < test_111.csv
Basically i want two columns of csv file , First column should have Child name & Second cloumn should have Sub-Directory name inside PQR Directory.

Any help will be useful on this.

Thanks in Advance!

Best Regards,
Vijay Bhatia

maybe something like this [untested]:
find . -type d | awk -F / '{print $4 "," $9}'
