I am finding a lot of posts on this forum that have to do with finding various values in a text file and outputting text surrounding it. However, I don't seem to find any "stream oriented".
I want to find a particular string in a file, and output only the text that follows it until the end of the file is reached. In other words, I want something that acts like a filter that ignores the text in a file until a specific string value is reached, and then from that point on outputs text to stdout until the end of the file. I want to use stdout so I can pipe output to a file if I so chose.
Is there a Linux text utility that will help me do this and if so, how? Or if I need to write a bash shell script to accomplish that, what are the general steps and command line utilities I would use to do this?
For example, given a sample file below:
one two three four five
Suppose I wanted to output all the text after the "three" so the result would be:
NOTE: I did find this seemingly related post but as you can see it's a bit of a mess:
