How can I extract only the second column (pids of processes)?
How can I extract only the ninth column (pathnames of files)? (pathnames can contain any character allowed by Linux and ext4 file systems)
My real command is
$ sudo lsof -u t | grep -v "wineserv" | grep REG | grep "\.pdf" | grep "string"
where I would search for records whose first column "COMMAND" isn't
wineserv, and fifth column "TYPE" is
REG, and whose ninth column "NAME" contains
Prefer bash, awk or Python solutions (and maybe Perl, but I don't know Perl, so won't be able to verify if it is correct or modify it later)
