Output ONLY lines with specific string

Post by nkormanik »

I'm attempting to search in just a single large file. I would like to output ONLY lines that contain a particular string.

Example:
Elton John

Output all lines containing "Elton John".

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks!

The preview window currently just displays the line with the phrase in it if this helps.

Are you wanting to extract the lines?
If you want to extract, try-

Checkmark the setting-
Read Entire File: "Process Line by line"

Regular Expression:
.*Elton John.*

Click 'Extract'.

Super. Thanks for getting back.

Can this be set up as a 'command-line' code, and output to file. So as to be automatic?
