I'm doing a search of a syslog file using less - and having a brain fart.
I'm trying to make a regular search expression that will look for the word
"greylist" and the word "*.aol.com" in the same line of the syslog.
I just do not remember how to do this and looking around the Internet I'm
not finding what I need.
Can anyone help me?
Are you just looking for 'a' followed by 'b', or might you want to see
that and 'b' followed by 'a'?
Is the '*' in '*.aol.com' literal? And do you want to find only cases
where both words happen, or are you also interested in lines with one or
the other, alone?
The simple case ('a' followed by 'b', no specific regex characters to
take literally) would be to just say: greylis.*aol.com
Hope this helps
If you need a more complex search, I'll can take a
second (longer) look.
