Course description
By the end of this project, you will extract email text data from a file using a regular expression in a bash script. The bash shell is a widely used shell within Linux distributions. One of the Linux tools often needed is file data extraction to obtain specific fields from files. For example, email files containing email addresses can often be difficult to analyze because of extraneous data. Error log files may also be more easily analyzed by matching specific data fields. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
