help with displaying certain lines

suppose i have a file which contains this:
00 07 * * * /home/production/bin/xxx.ksh
00 08 * * * /home/production/bin/xyz.ksh
00 12 * * * /home/production/bin/tuv.ksh
30 06 * * * /home/production/bin/cde.ksh
30 10 * * * /home/production/bin/put.ksh
00 01 * * * /home/production/bin/lik.sh

Now if I WANT TO DISPLAY ONLY THOSE LINES WHICH HAVE SECOND COLUMN >=06 AND <12.hOW DO i DO IT.

Thanks in advance.Smilie

cut -f2 -d" " file1 > file2

This will put just that column into file2.

I'm sure there are other solutions out there as well, but I hope this helps.

hi

Try giving this
awk '$2 >= 06 && $2 < 12 {print}' test.txt
test.txt is the file which will contain
00 07 * * * /home/production/bin/xxx.ksh
00 08 * * * /home/production/bin/xyz.ksh
00 12 * * * /home/production/bin/tuv.ksh
30 06 * * * /home/production/bin/cde.ksh
30 10 * * * /home/production/bin/put.ksh
00 01 * * * /home/production/bin/lik.sh
