Need help with this script please

find . -printf "%p\t%s\t%M\t%u\t%g\t%.24A+\t%.24T+\t%.24C+\t" -a \( -type d -exec echo \; -o -type f -exec sh -c "md5sum {} | cut -d' ' -f1" \; \)

This script fails in an AIX environment - looking for suggestions as how to make it run w/o errors in an AIX Environment.

Thanks in advance

RE: Need help with this script please

I think the easiest way is to install gnu find by: http://www.perzl.org/aix/index.php?n=Main.Findutil...
and probably also coreutils (to get md5sum you use too) http://www.perzl.org/aix/index.php?n=Main.Coreutil...

or same from IBM's AIX toolbox for linux builds or from:


update: I've checked your command on AIX with findutils/coreutils installed on and it works:

CODE -->

$ oslevel -s
$ rpm -qa|grep -e findut -e coreut
$ /opt/freeware/bin/find . -printf "%p\t%s\t%M\t%u\t%g\t%.24A+\t%.24T+\t%.24C+\t" -a \( -type d -exec echo \; -o -type f -exec sh -c "md5sum {} | cut -d' ' -f1" \; \)
