I think that perhaps there is some language barrier. Your original post indicates that you want lines 1, 2, 4 and no others output. "i want only output the first, second, and fourth line" Your most recent post says that is "the problem". Which I infer means something you don't want. Could you maybe rephrase the question, or at least be a bit more verbose? ... If you want the output to go to a file try something like (sed -ne '1,2p;4p' "$input" > "$output"). -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
