extracting specific text from lines

Hello,

i've got this output text:

Quote:
36K /tmp/hsperfdata_root
4.0K /tmp/libstorage-KCA9un
4.0K /tmp/.X11-unix
4.0K /tmp/orbit-root
8.0K /tmp/ksocket-root
4.0K /tmp/.ICE-unix
12K /tmp/kde-root/closeditems
56K /tmp/kde-root
4.0K /tmp/kde-test/closeditems
16K /tmp/kde-test
8.0K /tmp/ksocket-test
184K /tmp/VMwareDnD/a469da9e
184K /tmp/VMwareDnD/f99c770f
1.7M /tmp
and i need it to look something like this:

Quote:
36K hsperfdata_root
4.0K libstorage-KCA9un
4.0K .X11-unix
4.0K orbit-root
8.0K ksocket-root
4.0K .ICE-unix
12K closeditems
56K kde-root
4.0K closeditems
16K kde-test
8.0K ksocket-test
184K a469da9e
184K f99c770f
which means that there won't be absolute path of each directory, just it's size and the last word after last '/' in each line, and i also don't need last line '1.7M /tmp'

Looks like there is a simple solution for that, but i'm only a beginner to linux, so i'll apreciate any help. Smilie

Try:
Code:
sed '$d;s|/.*/||' infile

Code:
sed -n 's|/.*/||p' infile
