I have a lot of
.xml files structured the same way:
<parent id="idvalue" attr1="val1" attr2="val2" ...> <child attr3="val3" attr4="val4" ... /> <child attr3="val5" attr4="val6" ... /> ... </parent>
Each file has exactly one
<parent> element with exactly one
All of those files (almost 1,700,000 of them) are named as part.xxxxx where xxxxx is a random number.
I want to name each of those files as
idvalue.xml, according to the sole
id attribute from the file’s content.
I believe doing it with a bash script would be the fastest and most automated way. But if there are other suggestions, I would love to hear them.
My main problem is that I am not able (don’t know how) to get the
idvalue in a specific file, so that I could use it with the
mv file.xxxxx idvalue.xml command.
