Question Extracting regular expression

Hi there,

I need to extract from a long txt file only lines like this:

20 1.0000e+00 5.4392e-02 2.4665e+02

I've looked for a way by using sed, but I couldn't find the right way...

Any help would be appreciated!!!Smilie

regexp like:

Code:
[0-9]\.[0-9]\{4\}e[+-][0-9]

should work
