How do you print each name of a file from a directory into a string and make make new scripts?
to print each file name
for i in `ls new_manifest*`; do echo $i; done
but when I try and print the rest of the string with $i like this is doesn't seem to work!
for i in `ls filenames*`; do printf '#!/bin/bash #$ -cwd #$ -j y #$ -S /bin/bash #$ -pe threaded 8 $HOME/bin/program -vv -c $HOME/program.key -d $i --max 10' > $HOME/Scripts/$i.sh; done
also doesn't work when I use echo or a backslash before the $i.
