Sorry, I am one of those windows dummies trying to use a real operating system.. Unix.


I would like to run a grep command. I type the grep command and press enter, but nothing happens, I just get a cursor that blinks. When I press CTR+C I get my cursor back, but no output.

I typed:
grep 10.151.253



Thanks!

The syntax is
grep pattern filenames

eg, if you want to find "10.151.253" in a text file abc.txt, you do:

grep "10.151.253" abc.txt

man grep
