How to exclude rows from a text file for loop

I have a textfile (file1.txt) with multiple lines of data. This textfile I'm using to copy data from a directory A to another B. My script looks if an expression is included in a filename of a file stored in A. In the directory A I grep another textfile (file2.txt) to get information (rows like [bla][0-9][0-9][bla][0-9][0-9]) that I want to exclude in my script.

set x = `grep '[bla][0-9][0-9][bla][0-9][0-9]' file1.txt`

foreach i ( $x )
    cp A/*$i* B/.
end

For example rows in file1.txt:

bla11bla11
bla12bla12
bla13bla13
bla14bla14
bla15bla15

and grep result from file2.txt that has to be excluded for the loop

bla11bla11
bla12bla12

My script should finally only use the following lines

bla13bla13
bla14bla14
bla15bla15

How can I do this?

  • Where did you get that syntax from? – Tom Fenech Nov 11 '14 at 14:01
  • That would appear to be csh syntax (or something close to it). – Etan Reisner Nov 11 '14 at 14:03
  • Would it be a good idea to change the tags? Stefan, can you clarify which shell you are working in? – Tom Fenech Nov 11 '14 at 14:05
  • It is a C-shell script – Stefan Nov 11 '14 at 14:08
  • Make the first line be /bin/csh -vx to see what is being executed and when. This will show you what values are being used for each variable as each line of code is executed. Good luck. – shellter Nov 11 '14 at 14:16
