This is what are you looking for ?
Code:
awk '/^dependency/{printf "\n"$0FS}/^provider/{print $0}' inputfile

It is working

Thank you praveen it works, I had a problem with the spaces in the start, I had to tweak the command a bit as follows

Code:
awk '/^  dependency/{printf "\n"$0FS}/^   provider/{print $0}'

How to further process so that we have all in same line like

Code:
dependency: libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3.4)(64bit) provider: glibc.x86_64 2.5-49 provider: glibc.x86_64 2.5-49

I would like this as Im planning to use ":" or something else as a feild seperator and then mail this as a cvs attachment.

Thanks in Advance
Syed
