this command example wasn´t meant to be copy & pasted into terminal.
Instead you will need to edit it to your needs.


>> man sed
>> man cut
>> man sort
>> man awk
>> man uniq

These tools are really powerful and to handle them right makes the
difference between a noob and an expert. Personally i belong to ther
former.  ;)
