http://stackoverflow.com – I have a file which has a lot of space separated text columns. One column looks like this - where number is 3 or more digits. eg <234>, <9473> etc. eg. text.... text... <2329> text... text.... text... <735> text... text.... text... <23229> text... text.... text... <2444> text... I only want to find those numbers and print or save the results of the search using bash. How do I do it ? Thanks I am doing this using linux [L]ubuntu. (HowTos)
