Jay Fields recommends the following commands for working with log files, etc.:

  • cat: concatenate files and print on standard output
  • sort: sort lines of text files, e.g., cat order.* sort
  • grep: filter lines matching a pattern
  • cut: remove sections from each line
  • sed: perform basic text transforms
  • uniq: remove duplicate lines from a file
  • find: search for files in a directory hierarchy: find /Users -name “order.*”
  • less: move forward and backward within a file. Forward: /, backward: ?, + f tails the file.
