The below address information is logged in the file x.log. If the user enters 2, iwant the address information starting with <address> ..</address> to be displayed
on the console. Is it better to use shell script. Any help is appreciated.

What do you want to be displayed?
grep -n1 2 x.log | tail -n 1
would do the trick.
The 2 is the
to search for with grep.
-n1 gives 1 line of context before and behind.
tail -n1 only displays 1 line from the end backwards.
In a shell script xlogsearch.sh, you would write
#!/bin/bash grep -n1 $1 /path/to/x.log | tail -n 1
and call it
I agree. Here's the link:
