How to grep for an exact phrase
I'm running a script (not mine) that outputs many files of the form:
FileName.1234567 (where the numerical part is some random number)
In most cases it's easy to grep out a certain filename, since they're not similar, but I'm running into the following problem with similar filenames
I'm trying to grep out certain filenames, eg. stat.123456, but unfortunately I get other output that has the word stat in it. How can I do an exact grep to discard matches like Newstat.123456, stationary.123456 etc
I've been using the following command
./SomeScript.sh | grep "stat"
