A continuation of this question: parse first column of command output, get corresponding second column value Say I have a command that outputs a string formatted as a table, as shown below. What if the "pattern" I am looking for includes spaces? For example, if the table is:
First Characteristic: b Second Characteristic: 89.4 Version: 58.93 Name of Device: myDevice Name of Device Load: myDevice-load-123abc
What if I want to get the value next to "Name of Device Load" in the table above?
To clarify, I know the value I am looking for is next to "Name of Device Load." I do not know that it is in the 5th row of the output, and I do not know anything about what that value would look like (So I can't try pattern matching with something like "-load-", for example).
