| We are trying to change tab to commas in lots of large files - my husband has been reading each file into Excel on his pc and outputting .csv files ad infinitum - so I offered to try and dust off my awk skills to automate the process. We have a older mac laptop (OS 10.5, I think) and the pc is running WinXP.|
We put the files on a thumb drive and brought them over to the mac where I copied a few files to run tests, then I gave him back his thumb drive, and when he put in in the PC, the directory structure is all wacky - there appear to be limitless folders in the dir I accessed (when you hit the folder expansion, the dir comes up named "0" and subfolders go on forever. . .). I didn't work on the thumb drive on the mac other than to copy a few files from it.
Are the files on the thumb drive corrupted? Fixable? Any ideas what happened? thanks for any help. . .
