Thanks, Contains:
 cat /etc/sysconfig/cron | egrep -v "^[[:space:]]*$|^#"
 egrep -v "^$|^#" file

Testing with csh, " was not delimiting (Illegal variable name) so '
 cat /etc/crontab | egrep -v '^[[:space:]]*$|^#'

I tried to get an ideally short RE but man egrep is terse, & lacks examples:

 cd /usr/local/mailman/lists
 config_list -o - bg | egrep -v '^[[:space:]]*#|^$'    # OK, but not ideal
 config_list -o - bg | egrep -v '^[[:space:]]*#|$'     # Empty.
 config_list -o - bg | egrep -v '^[[:space:]]*[#$]'    # Blank lines remain.
 config_list -o - bg | egrep -v '^[[:space:]]*[#$]|^$' # OK
 config_list -o - bg | egrep -v '^[[:space:]]{0,}[#$]' # Blank lines remain.

Does some other Unix have a better worded or more verbose RE definition,
more examples ?
