I would like to unzip individual files. These files have a .txt extension. These files also live within multiple zipped files. Here is the command I'm trying to use.
unzip -jn /path/to/zipped/files/zipArchiveFile2011\*.zip /path/to/specific/individual/files/myfiles2011*.txt -d /path/to/home/directory/for/extract/
From my understanding, the -j option excludes directories and will extract only the txt files The -n option will not overwrite a file if it has already been extracted. I've also learned that the forward slash in
/path/to/zipped/files/zipArchiveFile2011\*.zip is necessary to escape the wildcard (*) character.
Here is sample of error messages I'm coming accross:
caution: filename not matched: /path/to/specific/individual/files/myfiles20110807.txt
caution: filename not matched: /path/to/specific/individual/files/myfiles20110808.txt
caution: filename not matched: /path/to/specific/individual/files/myfiles20110810.txt
caution: filename not matched: /path/to/specific/individual/files/myfiles20110809.txt
I feel that I'm missing something very simple. I've tried using single quotes (') and double quotes (") around directory paths. But no luck.
