Re: Sort files by filename

Try this to start out...

#!/bin/sh

last_seq_number=UNKNOWN

for f in `ls XXXX*bz2`; do
  seq_number=`echo $f | cut -d'_' -f4 | cut -d'.' -f1`

  if [ $last_seq_number != 'UNKNOWN' ]; then
    diff=`expr $seq_number - $last_seq_number`
    if [ $diff -ne 1 ]; then
      echo "Missing Files"
    fi
  fi

  last_seq_number=$seq_number
done



Man that is really close. However, and the one thing I neglected was that the filenames have different names before the last 2 digits:

XXXX20070515_112011_942_10.bz2 and in the same directory there may be:
XXXX20070515_112011_943_10.bz2

I'm not interested in the _###_ values, just the last 2 digits. Is there a way to build that in?
