Script linux loop for multiple number

I have a list of Linux commands that I need to repeat up to 670. How can I automate the commands, so I don’t have to do the 670 times. I don’t know how to do all the operations from C1, C2, C3 …. to C670?


mkdir C1

cd C1

awk '/Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0_Contig_1\t/' ../Methy_670.txt | cut -f 2 > IllU_C1.txt

awk '/Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0_Contig_1\t/' ../TE/TEannotation_Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0.gff3 | cut -f 4,5 > TE_C1.txt

paste TE_C1.txt IllU_C1.txt> C1.txt

awk -f ../com.awk C1.txt C1.txt > res_C1

wc -l res_C1

wc -l TE_C1.txt

cd ..

###Stop C1

#Start C2

mkdir C2

cd C2

awk '/Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0_Contig_2\t/' ../Methy_670.txt | cut -f 2 > IllU_C1.txt

awk '/Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0_Contig_2\t/' ../TE/TEannotation_Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0.gff3 | cut -f 4,5 > TE_C1.txt


>Solution :

Not tested:


for C in {1..670};do
echo START ${C}

mkdir -p ${C} && cd ${C}

awk '/Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0_Contig_'${C}'\t/' ../Methy_670.txt | cut -f 2 > IllU_${C}.txt

awk '/Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0_Contig_'${C}'\t/' ../TE/TEannotation_Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0.gff3 | cut -f 4,5 > TE_${C}.txt

paste TE_${C}.txt IllU_${C}.txt> ${C}.txt

awk -f ../com.awk ${C}.txt ${C}.txt > res_${C}

wc -l res_${C}

wc -l TE_${C}.txt

cd ..

echo Stop ${C}


I am not sure what awk '/Prymnesium_parvum_GenomeV1.0_Contig_1\t/' ../Methy_670.txt does but you will have to figure out how you can add ${C} in there as single quotes will not parse ${C}
