Here is the part of 1.html
<table width="100%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="1"> <tr bgcolor="#FF0000"> <td><center><h3 id="nr_status">FAILED<h3></center></td> </tr> </table> <b>1 tests have been read.</b><br /> <b>1 tests have been executed.</b><br /> <b>0 tests have been ignored.</b><br /> <b>0 tests have suceeded.</b><br /> <b>1 tests have failed.</b><br />
I do not know much about linux but I was exploring StreamEditor, the objective is to set the value FAILED in a variable. So I tried to write a code
sed -n '/<h3 id="nr_status">/,/<\/h3>/p' ~/1.html
The output i got is everything after , not sure why is not being considered as a matching pattern ?
