Filter log file contents between date


Could you please provide me command to filter contents between date in a log file?

Say for example, in a log file I want to capture contents between date May 01 from 5am to 9 am.

OS -- Linux

Does your Linux have a command, dgrep?

which dgrep

will show you if the command is available.

dgrep is date grep - it is meant to do exactly what you asked for.
If you don't have it, install the dateutuils package for your system.

PS: showing sample input and expected output really helps get better answers than what I just gave.
