RE: Parse Text File?

"DavidM" wrote:
Thanks for the code, Morten.

Based on what I'm seeing, it looks like your first code sample will work.

Are you only returning debits/credits for the first block match or is this
routine looping thru each and returning? It looks like you only return the
first block?
That is correct. My code only checks for a single "Blocks used" section.
If there are more just run the method again with the same binaryreader, or
find the next matching line.
As another side, I learned today that the section can also exist on the
right-hand side of the report and not the left hand. So I would have to
check to see where it exists.....

This is why I hate parsing reports; sinsce they're never consistent.
Yes, its hard to parse these reports if they keep changing. You may want to
adjust the code to allow for variations of "***BLOCKS USED***" to find the
correct section.

Happy Coding!

Hello, Does anyone know where I can find an ASP server side script written in JavaScript to parse text fields from a form method='POST' using enctype='multipart/form-data'? I'd also like it to parse the filename. <form name='form1' method='POST' enctype='multipart/form-data' action='sub.asp'> <input type='text' name='title1' value='value1'> <input type='file' name='file1'>

Hi, I'm trying to strip the html and other useless junk from a html page.. Id like to create something like an automated text editor, where it takes the keywords from a txt file and removes them from the html page (replace the words in the html page with blank space) I'm new to python and could use a little push in the right direction, any ideas on how to implement this? Thanks!

Assumptions I am assuming that you know or are capable of looking up the functions I am to describe here and have some remedial understanding of C programming.

Parsing is actually including the syntax in order to make...
