Hi Steven! You are right about sed - it is a wonderful program, but
really CPU intensive. But that you posted doesn't work when copied
exactly, however this
 foo='UCD-SNMP-MIB::ucdavis.55.101.1 = STRING: "CRITICAL emcpowera, 2 dead, 2 alive, possible LUN tresspass or HBA failure"'
 echo ${foo#*STRING:}
works as Tom wants. I don't quite understand this, but it is interesting
approach. Could you explain it a little bit more, or point me to a link
where I can read more!

Best regards,

Peter
