Todd:
Your problem is begging for the application of the Mathematica pattern
matching capabilities. For example:
Cases[masterlist,{{a_,_,_,_,_,_,_,_,p1_},{a_,_,_,_,_,_,_,_,
p2_},{a_,_,_,_,_,_,_,_,p3_}} /;
Abs[Plus@@Sign[{p1,p2,p3}]] == 3]
The above will select exactly the "groups" with three elements, all
with the same first member, and all with the same sign in the 9th
member. Take a look at Position[] and Extract[] and you'll see some
great ways to quickly do what you wish.
By the way it might be a bit obscure as to why the first members must
match in the above. It turns out that if a pattern with the same name
is mentioned several places in a larger pattern (e.g. "a_" above) then
Mathematica will only match where each pattern has the same exact matched value.
It's difficult to get this from the help pages.
Important: You must quote the first item in each list, e.g.
"AEST-01-C-10" or Mathematica will evaluatate it as an expression.
There are other ways to prevent such evaluation as well (e.g. via the
use of Hold[]) but they're trickier to use.
