    Best way to extract lines from a log file in Linux


      My query is that I have a log file which is around 7 GB and I want to extract lines between a certain time range which should total up to half of the size to 3.5 GB. The lines start with a time range like                        “2014-03-11 17:35:00”. I want to extract the lines between “2014-03-11 17:35:00” to “2014-03-11 18:05:00”. What should be the best way as there may be a grep command or a sed command to do it.


      I hope, my question is clear.


      Please revert with the reply to my query.
