I have been a fan of these three tools for years. So often I have had to take big log files, or other standard files, and process them somehow, either by filtering out much of the information or reformatting it to make it easier to process (e.g. turn a text file into a smaller CSV file I can then process using Excel). If this sounds like something you do, then I recommend this article. It is addressed to Mac OS X users, but really it is good for pretty much any version of Unix that has those tools. Well worth a read.
