Sed Question

Is there any way to traverse the file once and look for the following conditions in one sweep instead of going over the file 3 times with different search criteria......
sed -n '/^ORA-07445/ p' /tmp/t$$ > ${OERRFILE}
sed -n '/^ORA-00600/ p' /tmp/t$$ >> ${OERRFILE}
sed -n '/^Error/ p' /tmp/t$$ >> ${OERRFILE}

I may be way off, but you could use egrep (or sometimes grep -E) for what you're trying to do:
egrep "^(ORA-07445|ORA-00600|Error)" /tmp/t$$ >${OERRFILE}

Or you could use 'sed -e "blah" -e "blah" -e "blah"'. Check your local man pages to be sure.
