Hi kavyatim,

if the needed words are always the first words at the start of a new line, use this:

... | rex "^(?<myField>\w+(\s|-LINK|))" | table myField

This will get you a table of

  • Thomson
  • D-LINK
  • COMTREND

hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

It's a bit ugly to have the dash sometimes be part of the word (D-LINK) and sometimes serve as a word separator (COMTREND-COMTREND) - if your list of such exceptions is large then you'll have to build a large regex.
