I have a file called MemoryReport.txt .

Somewhere in the middle of each line, it says Limit:.

I would like for a script to copy only lines that says Limit:1 and exclude all others and print to a output text called LowLimit.txt

  • Should that include lines that contain e.g. Limit:10 or MaxLimit:1? (Limit:1 is a substring) – Kusalananda Feb 22 at 21:57
  • This should include Limit:1* so any number following 1 should also be captured. – Ibrahim A Feb 26 at 13:29

Here is how to do it, I figured it out.

grep "Limit:1" MemoryReport.txt > LowLimit.txt
