Help Required in Unix Command

Hi All,

Can anyone please help me in unix command


File contains data along with date and time stamp like,

Date: 08:23:2005 01:00:00
method: xyz
init variables

Date 08:23:2005 01:00:01
method: xyz
finished init variable


Now i should execute the unix command to get the contains of 1 hour (say 1st hour) data.

Is it possible , if yes can any one please help me...

# 2  
grep -A

i think it should do the deal if you want to collect the data for one hour of a specific day.

just do this :

grep -A 3 "08:23:2005 01:" data_file

where your file is data_file.
# 3  
awk '/Date: 08:23:2005 01/, /Date: 08:23:2005 02/' file1
