When you have a bunch of text to sift through, standard Unix command line utilities like grep, sed, awk, cut, sort, and uniq can help extract the information you want. For example, with a git log for a project, you might want to group commits by day in order to see which days you're most productive, or find out how many commits you made last year. In this lesson, you'll learn how to combine these commands with the pipe operator to extract this data from git logs.
