script ksh/awk/grep

How can I extract the 9th line of a text file.

thanks vm.Smilie

I would go with
sed -n '9p' < file

at least for short files. This causes sed to read the entire file but only print line 9. For very lengthy files you can use the more cryptic
sed -n '9{p;q;}' < file

which will cause sed to to print line 9 and then immediately exit.

MySQL awk is very powerful

Smilie This will come to your help.

awk '{if (NR == 9) print $0}' file_name


(awk is 100% reliability.)
