Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running a mass grep script to search for patterns. I have it working but now what I want to do is display the patterns that do not match into another output file and no longer the matches. What option do I use with grep or pipe? I want the command to display the pattern it didn't find into a text file. I'm on Redhat 5.4 GNU. The file will contain 28 thousand grep queries and this time I don't want the matches, just the patterns that do not match.
Just for information purposes:
Target file to search against is called objects_from_file_map.txt and I would name the output file to something like non-matching_objects.csv
Example of one the start of my file where I'm doing it the normal way but like I said, I need the opposite now:
#this script takes searches for the missing objects in filemap and
#displays output in duplicated_matching_objects.csv
grep -n 118021.asm objects_from_file_map.txt>duplicated_matching_objects.csv
grep -n 118022.asm objects_from_file_map.txt>>duplicated_matching_objects.csv
grep -n 118023.asm objects_from_file_map.txt>>duplicated_matching_objects.csv
grep -n 118025.asm objects_from_file_map.txt>>duplicated_matching_objects.csv
..and so on
And the manpage was no help ?. Particularly the bit about invert-match ?.
I did look at the man page and that was the first thing I tried with -v option but for some reason it was logging like crazy into duplicated_matching_objects.csv. Then I wasn't sure if that was really what I needed. So I'll try to fidget around with that more and my file.
