I have a large log file I want to review. All the bad stuff starts at the certain occurence of an error string. I want to then look at the last x lines from that point and see what might have caused that error. I can't open the file with my favourite text editor because it exhausts all the RAM on the machine.
I thought perhaps I might be able to find the line it occurs on and then use another utility to get data from x line to y line. Is this possible?
