grep and cut....

hi,

i have a simple question:

in hpux 11i;

this cmd :
cat mailtest |grep sekar >test1

gives the output file with the name test1.

i want to remove the line which contains the "sekar" and put the result in the new file....

what is the command for that?..

Could be better done as

Code:
grep 'sekar' mailtest > test1

By result, you mean have the contents of mailtest without those lines containing 'sekar' ?

You can do
Code:
grep -v 'sekar' mailtest > test.txt

If your grep doesnt have the -v option, this should work

Code:
sed -e '/sekar/d' mailtest >test.txt

If you want lines containing 'sekar' only, test1 has that.
