i have a command that prints out some statistical information that looks like this:

Detailed Hardware Status Dump:



Memory info: OK
HDD info:  OK

I'd like to ./dump_hw_status | grep 'Summary:' so that grep start to output everything from the first line matching 'Summary:'

is there any simple way to do it?

One way using GNU sed:

./dump_hw_status | sed -n '/^Summary:/,$p'

This will print everything from the line starting with "Summary:" to the end of the file.
