Code:
echo `cat Users.txt | cut -d= -f2` | awk '!x[$0]++' |awk -F"[,]" '{ for (i=1; i<=NF; i++) print $i }'


it will handle upto comma.. But i am sorry i couldn't handle escape charactor.

  1. Please use complete english words and sentences.
  2. "Not get the desided output"? You never told us what output you expect. Or how the output from those commands is different from what you expect. We ain't psychic.

Exactly Pludi..

Your heading of the post "greping word after new line character"
and "how grep all user from the below looking file:" it self different.

if posting , please provide us how you want your OUTPUT exactly or how your OUTPUT will look like atleast.
