Isolate String from Large Text


    Jan 30 2013 | 10:10 pm
    Hi.
    I would like to know how I can isolate a specific string that I want from a large incoming text. Also, can I take a string between two points inside the text (i.e. point 1 on start of line 10, and point 2 on end of line 10)?
    Or how can I isolate a specific line from the text (disregard everything except line 10)?
    Thanks

      jit.textfile will happily provide a lot of the functionality you're asking for. I'd use it to locate the specific lines, then atoi/regexp or similar to chop the line.

      Thanks Wetterberg for the response. I have looked around and tried a few things, but can't find the correct configuration.
      Can you post an example (or anyone who like to share please)?

      Alright, solved.
      Well the problem was that my text was formatted as a table structure, and had to change that to process it as a list and text.
      I then used simple zl, sprintf, and route to get the values I wanted.
