Formatting in PHP

P: n/a

I'm a bit of a php noob and I've got a file month1.tmp, and that has this output in it

IP accounting summary
Host: server.local / Time created: 2003/10/21 19:45:57 EST
Data from 2003/09/30 16:59:00 EST to 2003/10/21 19:45:57 EST
download all : 2544M
upload all : 1874M
* user download : 2003M
* user upload : 1169M
* user download : 514M
* user upload : 705M

* = data incomplete, rule was not there all the time

Basically i want to get this output format to another file called month.tmp

Time:2003/10/21 19:45:57 EST

Is there away i can do this? I'm new to php so i don't know if this is a huge task or not.
It's to be run on a linux system, maybe i should use bash scripting or something?
I want to have the : in there splitting up the data to make it easy to split into fields to use in a web page.

If i'm way out of my depth being a noob then just say so, but if it's fairly easy to do i'd love some guidance :)

Well, your is not really a php problem.
You can do the conversion also with bash script, or C, Perl, or something
If you want to do it with php, you must open the .tmp file and start reading
a line at a time.
For every line, you must decide what to do: transfer or modify.
Obviously, you must create the destination file.
You must have r/w permission on server to do that.
