    Displaying Output from the First Match of a Regular Expression

    When you use regular expressions, enclose any spaces, operators, or wildcard characters in quotation marks.

    For information about common regular expression operators, see table Common Regular Expression Operators in Operational Mode Commands in Using Regular Expressions with the Pipe Symbol.

    To display output starting with the first occurrence of text matching a regular expression:

    • Enter find after the pipe symbol.

    The following example starts displaying information for the show system information command starting with the Current time section of the output:

    user@host> show system information |find time
