The following code is an example of what I'm using at the moment, but it keeps erroring out on me:
do shell script "find /Applications -name 'Bingo.app' > /tmp/remove_files" with administrator privileges if exists "/tmp_malware_alternate" then do shell script ("for i in `cat /tmp/remove_files`; do rm -rf $i") with administrator privileges do shell script "rm -rf /tmp/remove_files" with administrator privileges end if
It's supposed to find the existence of a file (in this case,
Bingo.app) and write it to a temporary file (/tmp/remove_files), which it does, and then check to see if the temporary file was written. If it was, it will look into that temporary file, and delete each file (specified by
i) in the temporary file listing, then remove the temporary file itself.
Instead, all it ever does is return an error:
/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file
error "/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file" number 2
What am I missing in this?
