   What command can I use to get all the lines in /var/log/messages
   that have messages on "bluetoothd" copied into a file called
   "mess" in /home/user/mess  ??


grep bluetoothd /var/log/messages > /home/user/mess/mess

assuming you have the rights to read messages and write to mess.

Craig, Thomas thanks for your help.

Jim

Can also be done using awk ;)

awk '{ if ($5 ~ /bluetoothd/) print}' /var/log/messages > /home/user/mess/mess
