Fear and loathing

#!/usr/bin/bash
for i in $(find -name *.xml); do (cat $i | (echo $i; grep -6 \”no)); (cat $i | (grep -6 \”error));done

Why am I parsing xml with a shell script? Because it has to be done *right now*, apparently, without time to produce a more elegant xml-based solution. So instead I treat it like the text that it is, and digest it into a tractable form. Such is the life of 300 megabyte piles of output logs. Regardless, I’m proud to have generated the above.
