"Simple" Text Parsing Problem
I am trying to find the simplest way to parse a text file. The parameters of the file are driving me nuts, however.
1. The file is split into pages, delimited by "======================"
2. There are 9 separate columns
3. All of the data for each column is listed, then the next, then so on
4. There can be up to 14 "records" per page, however the last page can have less.
If I could reformat into, say, CSV format, this would be of great assistance. Or, a conversion to any type of data structure would get me somewhere.
If you know what delimits columns and how the data is "listed" and what defines start
& stop of a "record" then this should be a walk in the park, if this info is scrambled in
some way then its bad news.
Post a couple of pages and I'll have a go at it.
