Hi,
I have a file and I want to sum all the numbers in it.
Example of the file:
0.6714359
-3842.59553830551
I used your forum (https://www.unix.com/shell-programming-scripting/74293-how-get-sum-all-lines-file.html) and found a script, what worked for me:
awk '{a+=$0}END{print a}'... (8 Replies)
Hi,
So I'm kinda new to shell scripts and the like. I've picked up quite a bit of use from browsing the forums here but ran into a new one that I can't seem to find an answer for.
I'm looking to parse/find a string AND the next 15 or so charachters that follow the string within a text file... (1 Reply)
Hi friends,
This is sed & awk type question.
I have a text file which has numbers spread all over the file. I want to sum the series of numbers whenever i find it and produce an output file with the sum. For example
###start of input text file ####
abc
def
ghi

Hi friends,
This is sed & awk type question. It is slightly different from my previous question.
I have a text file which has numbers spread all over the file. I want to sum the series of numbers (but no more than 10 numbers in series) whenever i find it and produce an output file with the... (4 Replies)
Dear everyone,
I have a big file with many information in it, but I just want some lines.
I don't know exactly what the number of the line I want, I only know some part of these line. It all starts with the word 'F(tot :1 )'
I use grep command and find it. It looks like that on the screen:... (3 Replies)

I have a file where every line includes four expressions with a caret in the middle (plus some other "words" or fields, always separated by spaces).

total
TOTAL(1) General Commands Manual TOTAL(1)NAME
total - sum up columns
SYNOPSIS
total [ -m ][ -sE | -p | -u | -l ][ -i{f|d}[N] ][ -o{f|d} ][ -tC ][ -N [ -r ]] [ file .. ]
DESCRIPTION
Total sums up columns of real numbers from one or more files and prints out the result on its standard output.
By default, total computes the straigt sum of each input column, but multiplication can be specified instead with the -p option. Likewise,
the -u option means find the upper limit (maximum), and -l means find the lower limit (minimum).
Sums of powers can be computed by giving an exponent with the -s option. (Note that there is no space between the -s and the exponent.)
This exponent can be any real number, positive or negative. The absolute value of the input is always taken before the power is computed
in order to avoid complex results. Thus, -s1 will produce a sum of absolute values. The default power (zero) is interpreted as a straight
sum without taking absolute values.
The -m option can be used to compute the mean rather than the total. For sums, the arithmetic mean is computed. For products, the geomet-
ric mean is computed. (A logarithmic sum of absolute values is used to avoid overflow, and zero values are silently ignored.)
If the input data is binary, the -id or -if option may be given for 64-bit double or 32-bit float values, respectively. Either option may
be followed immediately by an optional count, which defaults to 1, indicating the number of double or float binary values to read per
record on the input file. (There can be no space between the option and this count.) Similarly, the -od and -of options specify binary
double or float output, respectively. These options do not need a count, as this will be determined by the number of input channels.
A count can be given as the number of lines to read before computing a result. Normally, total reads each file to its end before producing
its result, but this behavior may be overridden by inserting blank lines in the input. For each blank input line, total produces a result
as if the end-of-file had been reached. If two blank lines immediately follow each other, total closes the file and proceeds to the next
one (after reporting the result). The -N option (where N is a decimal integer) tells total to produce a result and reset the calculation
after every N input lines. In addition, the -r option can be specified to override reinitialization and thus give a running total every N
lines (or every blank line). If the end of file is reached, the current total is printed and the calculation is reset before the next file
(with or without the -r option).
The -tC option can be used to specify the input and output tab character. The default tab character is TAB.
If no files are given, the standard input is read.
EXAMPLE
To compute the RMS value of colon-separated columns in a file:
total -t: -m -s2 input
To produce a running product of values from a file:
total -p -1 -r input
BUGS
If the input files have varying numbers of columns, mean values will certainly be off. Total will ignore missing column entries if the tab
separator is a non-white character, but cannot tell where a missing column should have been if the tab character is white.
