You should try reading a short how-to online somewhere. There's also always the man page. This link has enough to get you started: http://tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-G...ect_04_02.html

****Light goes on!!!****
It's September, and the students of the world have been back in class for maybe several weeks.....hence the increase in homework questions.

GREP: One of several Linux (Unix) commands for filtering text. Details available by typing "man grep".
