How can I display file content from the beginning up to some multi-line pattern without including the pattern itself?
For example, if I had a text file like this:
cat dog fox cow dove bird bunny gnu hen dove bird buffalo
and if my pattern was this:
dove bird bunny
what I'd like to get would be:
cat dog fox cow
My real file is huge so if there are multiple ways to achieve this, I'd prefer faster ways.
Also, I asked a similar question related to this just now, but it's different so please don't mark this as duplicate just because of that!
