What Others Think

I'm not sure what you're trying to do exactly... but putting four greps in a row (where one would do just fine) is hardly a commandline fu. Also, grep :[10000-19999] certainly doesn't do what you want it to do (limit to ports in 10k-20k range), because it will match semicolon followed by 0,1, or 9. You could use ':1[0-9]{4}', check this example: echo -e '10300\n20000\n100 \n800' | egrep '^1[0-9]{4}$' And then, awk's -F parameter takes a regexp (say -F'[: ]+') and awk can easily filter based on input (the way grep does) so you don't really have to put two awks interspersed with another grep. Check this out: echo -e "oh:hey there\noh http:no\n1:there:buddy" | awk -F'[ :]+' '$0!~/http/ {print $2}' (will print "hey\nthere")
