Just pipe the output to cut or awk as shown below:

Code:
/tmp/my_script | cut -d " " -f 1,2

or

Code:
/tmp/my_script | awk '{print $1, $2}'

Regards

#vi /tmp/my_program
#/bin/ksh
/tmp/my_script <<EOF
sleep 1
1

Not sure what you're trying to do with the script "/tmp/myprogram".
Besides of that, the shebang (the first line) of your script isn't proper, it should be:
Code:
#!/bin/ksh

Anyway, did you get the right output with the awk or cut command?

thx reply ,

for my first question , I can get all those 1500 lines but the application need to press "enter" key when I want go to next page ( 1500 lines have many pages ) , so I want to ask how to add the enter to my program , just like some unix key ^M etc.

Not sure if you can use the yes command, but you can try it:

Code:
yes "" | /tmp/my_script | awk '{print $1, $2}'

At the end you can get a "broken pipe" message, but don't worry you can just ignore it.

Regards
