    bdc and some fun stuff


    hello, newbie here. i am using a program called bdc antivirus to remove viruses. it cannot get into archives and remove stuff in them on win partitions. it can however create a logfile of what worked and what failed. is there a way to use grep to grab filenames that occur before the words "update failed" and then <find> to find the location and rm to remove them? a parser of types?

    Hi, jwmw1023.

    Yes, grep will probably work. You will likely get more responses if you post a short sample of the text that you have, and then a sample of what you wish the output to be.

    When posting text, select the text and click the # to put code tags around it for easy reading, like this:

    26847 /backup/xandros/drl/2006-12-21
     9703 /backup/xandros/drl/2006-12-20
