I'm not sure if something like this exists in the standard linux shell. I'm using a combo of GREP and AWK on a logfile tail. I'm looking for a key phrase, but once the line containing that keyphrase is found, I don't want to see it again.
Best explained by example I guess. Here's the kind of combo I'm using:-
I can't grep on the keyphrases as I don't know what they are in advance. All I know in advance is that "jedi" will appear in the lines I'm interested in. Whilst that same line is likely to appear in the log again multiple times, I only need to know that it happened once.
Hope that makes sense. Is there something I can do with AWK or GREP or some other app to do this?
