Filter stdin to avoid excessive output
This is the README file for zenfilter.
- © 2016, Shlomi Fish.
This small script filters long STDIN output, performing several functions to keep track of the important parts and progresses, which will be hard to do with a shell script.
It is useful for filtering the output of verbose Travis-CI ( https://travis-ci.org/ ) commands, but may be useful in other contexts where there is a limit to the amount of kept output.
All arguments are optional:
–count-step=n: displays COUNT <tab> <step> every n lines.
–last=n: displays the last n lines prefixed with “LASTt”
–filter=<regex pattern>: displays matching lines with a “FOUNDt” prefix.
–suppress-last-on=<regex>: suppress the last lines if their concatenated output matches the regex.
python zenfilter.py --count-step=10 --last=200 --filter="[0-9]+" python zenfilter.py --last=20 python zenfilter.py --last=25 --count-step=15
A use case scenario:
make 2>&1 | python zenfilter.py [args]
