I have a script and I want to display different messages if a file exists or not. I have a script like:
count=ls /import/*.zip | wc -lecho "Number of files: " $count if [ "$count" > "0" ]; then echo "Import $count files" else echo "**** No files found ****" fi
However, if no files exist, this is showing
No such file or directory instead of 0 files. There is a directory in the
/import/ directory, so I can’t just do a
ls command as that will always return a value greater than 0.
How can I count the number of files of a specific extension (.zip, .gz, etc.) and use that value in a bash script to both display the number of files and then use it in an if statement to display different messages?
count=$(find /import -maxdepth 1 -name '*.zip' | wc -l)
