Extracting rows from a text file based on the values of two columns (given ranges)

Hi,

I have a tab delimited text file with multiple columns. The second and third columns include numbers that have not been sorted. I want to extract rows where the second column includes a value between -0.01 and 0.01 (including both numbers) and the first third column includes a value between 1 and 5 (including). How do I go about doing that? Thanks!

Input:
Code:
a -0.01 5
b -0.02 3
c 0 3
d 0.005 6

Output:
Code:
a -0.01 5
c 0 3

# 2  
Code:
 
awk '($2>=-.01 && $2<=.01) && ($3>=1 && $3<=5)' infile
