I will probably end up implementing what I need in nodejs but it seemed more proper to do this task with shell scripting.
I have a file in which the first column is unix timestamps. I want to consider data between two points in time.
So there are some unix utilities that assume a sorted file like
uniq. What I want to do is use a
head like approach to select things greater than and less than two values.
It just seems like a unixy thing to be able to do and I'm shocked I don't have a tool in mind that can do that. There is a tool for everything in unix.
