Unix tools like grep, uniq, etc

Has anyone been able to get GPT-3 to emulate familiar Unix tools like uniq, sort, grep? I would like to be able to do things like tell it “remove duplicate lines from the given text.”

It should work with the command “remove duplicate lines from the given text.”

If you don’t want to confuse the model, you can try something like below:

command for remove duplicate lines using sort and save it as new file

then the output:

sort file.txt | uniq > newfile.txt


# find all files in the current directory that contain the word "happy"
grep -lir "happy" *

# read the text.txt and remove duplicate lines and save it as text_unique.txt

Codex Output:

sort text.txt | uniq > text_unique.txt
