parse a space delimited text chart

P: n/a

I'm trying to decipher ethereal packets and convert them from
hex to letters. I'd like to stream ethereal text files, and stream a
hex/ascii to
letters chart, both into datasets, and search for the numbers that correspond
to letters and numbers, then print those out so I can see if I can read what
is being sent through the packets ethereal picked up, so I can reverse
engineer a system that is in place. I know this is vague but any advice
would be appreciated.

There are various tools that you can use in C# to do the job.
Depending on the complexity of the files, you may want to use simple
string parsing, a state parser or regular expressions.
