Re: grep command

I think this is not possible with grep/egrep/fgrep. May be gnu grep will help.

Without gnu grep, you can do it as follows.

grep "" ./file|awk -F " " '{if(length($1)==12)print}'

There is no substitute to HARDWORK

Re: grep command


We can use ^ and $ to notify the begin and end of string. It is easy to get the exact string.

grep ^${ADRESSIP}$

Easy to suggest when don't know about the problem!
