Have you tried wildcards? Maybe something like:
$grep -c [15:**:**] tmpIEEE-17.txt
I'm not as familiar with all the options as I'd like so I don't know if this
will work but I hope this helps.
BTW, I never introduced myself properly. My name is Jose Calderon and I'm a
full-time student at UTSA and part-time lab tech at SAC. I've worked with
UNIX before and started learning Linux a few months ago.
