• Linux addfiles from CD

    From Clogan@1:103/705 to All on Monday, August 19, 2019 06:16:00
    In trying to add a CD to the file libraries on a Linux system I've run into
    the following problem. On the CD, all files.bbs files have filenames in uppercase. But the actual filenames on the CD are lower case. When running addfiles, all files show as "not found". By copying a couple of the CD's directories to the HDD so I can edit/modify them, then either modifying
    the filenames in files.bbs to lowercase, OR renaming all the actual files
    to uppercase, addfiles works perfectly adding all files and descriptions.
    Is there a way for addfiles to ignore the difference in case when doing
    a bulk add using files.bbs?

    I am sure someone can come up with a better script. Try this with jsexec (save it to a file in /sbbs/exec or whereever

    // usage:
    // to copy ALL files from directory use /sbbs/jsexec copyfiles and when prompted for
    // Path from: end the path with /*
    // ie: /sbbs/mods/*
    //
    // there is no need to add a trailing / at the end of Copy to

    load("sbbsdefs.js");

    var os = system.os_version;
    var myos = os.split(" ");
    print('OS = ' + myos[0] +'\r\n');

    if(myos[0].toLowerCase() == 'windows')
    var bs = '\\';
    else var bs = '/';

    if (argc==0)
    path = prompt("Path from");
    else
    path = argv[0];

    if (path==undefined) exit();

    if (path.indexOf('*')<0 && path.indexOf('?')<0)
    path += "*"; // No pattern specified

    path1 = prompt("Copy to");

    if(path1==undefined) exit();

    var lastChar = path1[path1.length -1];



    dir = directory(path,GLOB_PERIOD);


    for (i in dir) {
    if(this.bbs && bbs.sys_status&SS_ABORT) break;
    var fn = dir[i].split(bs);
    var rn = fn[fn.length-1];
    if(rn != '.' || rn != '..') {
    try {
    print('Renaming '+ dir[i] + ' to ' + path1 + bs + rn.toUpperCase());
    js.global.file_copy(dir[i], path1 + bs + rn.toLowerCase());
    }
    catch(err) {
    print("Fuck! " + err);
    }
    }
    }


    then you can use addfiles as per usual (I tested this on windows but it should work on linux

    I just committed an update to addfiles.c that should address this. Thanks for the detailed problem report.

    Probably easiest to just convert the files.bbs to lowercase...

    This command in linux will do that:

    cat files.bbs | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]' > newlist.bbs

    (and then move/rename the list files before importing).

    LOL, like I said in my reply, "I am sure someone(DM :) has a better solution" than the script I posted :-P

    Thanks for the quick response! I'll check out the new commit.

    And thanks to all that responded with ideas and suggestions!

    Ooooh... good catch.

    Hmmmm, better to change the case of the filenames on disk then, I
    guess.

    But probably neither is needed now, saw that DM has made a fix
    for this in the Addfiles code.
