If the needed OR unneeded lines have something in common then the filter command is your friend. Filter is blazingly fast.

Subject: Divide Large Data Blob?

I have a large chunk of data that I want to search as quickly as possible.  

Unfortunately the part I want to search is the middle third of the data.  The other thirds at the beginning and at the end are just junk and slow down my search so I want to get rid of them.

I don’t want to search line by line as that takes way too long.

There’s no unique character dividing any of these data regions.

What’s the best way to do this?

Thanks in advance!
