I have around 1000 text files. 0001.txt 0002.txt .....to 1000.txt

Every text file have 50 direct image links. how i can batch download these images in there respective folders named 0001, 0002.

Also rename files to maintain downloaded order 1 to 50.

#! /usr/bin/env bash

if [ -z $1 ] || egrep -qv '^https?:\/\/[^[:space:]]+' $1; then
  echo "Usage: $0 FILE"
  echo "FILE must be a newline-separated list of URLs."



while read URL; do
  curl -L $URL > "${OUTPUT_DIRECTORY}/${i}_${FILENAME}"
done < $INPUT_FILE

This script will download all the URLs in a given file into a directory named after the input file with the extension stripped.

If you wanted to use this with, say, a thousand text files, you can use a for loop like so:

for FILE in $(ls *.txt); do ./download_from_file $FILE; done
  • @gnubread Hey, Thanks. it work for one txt file. But i don't able to do with multiple files. Right now say 50 files. Can you explain more of that loop thing? sorry noob – Roxion Apr 4 '20 at 4:39
  • The last part of my answer has an example of how you could call the script on an arbitrary number of files. What part of it is unclear to you? – gnubeard Apr 4 '20 at 4:48
  • ibb.co/9VFWxFf $sh script.sh 0001.txt works good, you can see in screenshot, it created folder 0001. I did it for three files. But how do it in batch all these file? – Roxion Apr 4 '20 at 5:38
  • Have you seen the last line of my answer? The last line of my answer is the way to apply the script to all the files in a directory. Instead of $ sh script.sh 0001.txt, the command $ for FILE in $(ls *.txt); do sh script.sh $FILE; done would do the trick. If you want more clarification, please make an actual, honest effort to understand and ask clear, specific questions about what confuses you. – gnubeard Apr 4 '20 at 5:42
  • Thanks. This works now. – Roxion Apr 5 '20 at 6:17
