|Re: Using a bash script to alter multiple files|
Reply to an old thread

While working on a similar problem, I stumbled upon this thread: [webmasterworld.com ]. As I'm not allowed to reply to that one as it's too old, I'll start a new one more or less for the record.
I did a little hack that does the requested job, using the '$@' bash variable. It will accept wildcard arguments on the command line, so you may run it on multiple files like "iso2utf8 *.php".
# iso2utf8 - convert all specified files to utf-8
for FILE in `ls $@`
iconv -f iso-8859-1 -t utf-8 $FILE > tempfile.tmp
mv -f tempfile.tmp $FILE
ls -l $FILE
I hope that this may be of help to someone.
