i’m try to write a script and, well, i suck at it. anyway, it is fun.
what i want to do is change directories, add a date, then rename the file and then “wash” away mac endings to unix endings.
this is what i have already. it takes me to the directory, but i get bogged down at that point.
this takes me to the directory. each file is placed in a folder on the desktop and the folder is datestamped. i plug in the dates. in each folder is a file with the name “oddball.csv.(datestamp)”
i need to have the script complete the following comands it the directory:
mv oddball.csv.20040807 temp
cat temp | tr ‘r’ ‘n’ > oddball.csv.20040807
can i do this all in one step w/ applescript? i’ve tried several different ways, but getting nowhere. :shock:
