comment Downloads speed starts ok but after a few seconds they go down to 10kbps?
It would be worth asking your ISP if they've just started doing this, since you say this started yesterday. If not (and you believe them) then at least you'll know to be looking for a local problem.

comment linux output show only right of ':'
Did you run it? I did. It works just fine based on based on your description of the file (which I understood to be "stuff...G:/more stuff more stuff"). The two parens are required; one to close match(), one to close substr(). match() finds the string you wanted to print; substr() prints from where that string begins to the end of the line. Also: you're welcome.
