sed won't help here. awk, perl, python, ruby, or even plain old /bin/sh will.
Watch out for the Manners Taliban!
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

Dear ranatanveer,
Salam,

Indeed. I totally agree with lambda.

telenor, If you try to search at Porgamming Section of Linux Pakistan, I am sure you will find solution as lambda have given this task to Linux Pakistan Forum Members.

Best Regards.

Wa Alaikum Salam, LinuxFreak

I don't want to argue with you and lambda, i always respect you from my hear, because i have learned a lot from both of you.

but here i want to share that, i only know bash awk and sed and a little perl, and i am capable to do anything i want to do.

so the request of telenor:
I want a script for user delete & search from the file.


this work can be done simply with 1 line sed (if meaning of telenor saying is same :D ), as sed has both search and replace/delete patterns. (moreover sed and awk has many more capabilities which are unknown to me :lol: )
