Subject:	Sort files by filename

This is really a general linux question. I have a series of files in a format like this:

XXXX20070515_112011_942_12.bz2 etc,

and I am trying to find a way to do 2 things, one, sort these files in order, and then once in order, find the files that are numerically missing based on the last 2 numbers in the file name. So if I have (as above I want to know that file XXXX20070515_112011_942_11.bz2 is missing. Can someone get me started on this, I'm stumped.

Just an example tip which simply works with a counter, hope helps you.

a) Do you really need the sorting stuff? I didnt mess with that.
b) the counter:

[rodolfoap] /home/rodolfoap > for n in $(seq 10 40); do touch XXXX20070515_112011_942_${n}.bz2; done
[rodolfoap] /home/rodolfoap > rm XXXX20070515_112011_942_11.bz2 [rodolfoap] /home/rodolfoap > rm XXXX20070515_112011_942_22.bz2 [rodolfoap] /home/rodolfoap > rm XXXX20070515_112011_942_33.bz2 [rodolfoap] /home/rodolfoap > for n in $(seq 10 40); do if [ ! -e *_${n}.bz2 ]; then echo NOT FOUND: $n; fi; done
[rodolfoap] /home/rodolfoap >
Good luck.

I think this would probably work except I really need to know which ones are out of sequence as is, changing the filename would eliminate that capability and the missing files are the ones I need. See, I'm receiving the files from a separate server and they are sent to me in this format. I need to know which ones I /don't/ receive so I know which ones I need to have resent. Make sense?

Recedite, plebes! Gero rem imperialem!
