is this what you're looking for:

Code:
#  egrep "123.txt|abc.txt|process.xml" infile
Processing file: home/j2ee-apps/web-estore/123.txt
File: 123.txt           Status: Locally Added
Processing file: home/j2ee-apps/web-estore/abc.txt
File: abc.txt           Status: Locally Added
Processing file: home/j2ee-apps/web-estore/process.xml
File: process.xml           Status: Locally Added

?

Yes that is correct. But the in file will contain huge content in similar way. Where i need to fetch the list of the file which has Status: Locally Added and its consecutive Processing file: (lies above the status)


Code:
Processing file: home/j2ee-apps/web-estore/123.txt
File: 123.txt           Status: Locally Added
Processing file: home/j2ee-apps/web-estore/abc.txt
File: abc.txt           Status: Locally Added
Processing file: home/j2ee-apps/web-estore/process.xml
File: process.xml           Status: Locally Added

ah - in that case:

Code:
# awk '/Processing file/{t=$0;s=NR} (/Status: Locally Added/ && NR==s+1){print t;print $0}' infile
Processing file: home/j2ee-apps/web-estore/123.txt
File: 123.txt           Status: Locally Added
Processing file: home/j2ee-apps/web-estore/abc.txt
File: abc.txt           Status: Locally Added
Processing file: home/j2ee-apps/web-estore/process.xml
File: process.xml           Status: Locally Added

should be one way to get what you're after.
