I have a folder that contains text files. I need to extract lines that has 'BA' from these text files . I used grep command to print the lines with BA. I would like to save the outputs to another folder with the same file names. How can I change the following code?
grep " BA " dir/*.txt
for i in dir/*.txt; do grep " BA " $i > $newdir/`basename $i` done
Note the use of basename, which takes
dir/a.txt (say) and returns
