Re: grep and awk and redirection

Yes, 'grep' and 'awk' and redirection. I get that with Cygwin on winders. Why do I need Micro-shaft's LAME ATTEMPT at copying Linux? Or rather, embracing, extending, and EXTINGUISHING Linux?

grep in SFU/SUA didn't work quite the same, nor did awk from what I remember (and there were other irritations and limitations as well). As such, I couldn't get a proper grep search to work the same way with THAT thing. So now round 2.

why not just install LINUX instead, if you need Linux?

/me been living in the FreeBSD desktop, day to day, for YEARS now. Since some time before 2005, in fact.
