    shortening a url

    HI Guys im harvesting urls from google for a project

    and get the following results

    what i want to get to is

    proconnectmarketing.co.uk
    firstimpression.com
    firstimpression.com
    iabuk.net
    is there any easy way to accomplish this with sed grep awk or any other cli tools ?

    Cheers Pete

    Maybe something like this:

    Code:
    echo "http://www.iabuk.net/blog" | sed -e 's#^.*://##; s#/.*$##'
    Normally it is s/// but using the pound (#) instead makes it easier (IMHO) to search for and remove the slashes (/)

    thanks Lars that works partially but if i get a domain with a co.uk (should have included one in my example with hindsight) it doesnt catch all any ideas ?

    It catches all the ones that I can think to try. Can you post the one that gives sed trouble for you?
