Is there any non-shell script way to make grep return just the line
numbers of matches and not the content of the line?
grep -n will return something like this:
11: exec ls
36: exec foo
All I want are the line numbers and I do not want to have to use any sort
of shell script to chop of the ends.
If this is not possible, how would it be done with a shell script?
