Culling Data from a CSV file to output in excel

I am trying to cull out all rows of a csv file that match a specific group of IPs, i.e.100.25.40.* for instance and out that to a file displayable in excel.

Assuming this requires sed and awk commands or Perl.

Any ideas on how to do this?
I need to get all the data form the files with rows matchign the IP $string.

Hoping to use Korn shell for this but open to other ideas.

where i am right now

grep 10.25.40. cvs.file > cvs.out
This should give me a list of all the lines that contain

uniq -d cvs.out > cvs.out.uniq
This should result in a list of all lines that are repeated.

awk is the usual tool i think to pass this info on but need to bone up on it.

Guess you are trying to do:

awk '/10.25.40/ {print $0}' cvs.file | uniq -d > cvs.out.uniq
