This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Extracting some fields from a data File

Posted by perlnewuser (perlnewuser), 29 June 2004
Hi ,


I have input file like this (fields separator is "," lines separator is "\n"):


header, 06-12-2004, path, /usr/bin/sh,attribute,
100555,root,other,315,565690,
subject,bscs,sgrp,9936,6785,0 0,
return,success,0

header, 06-12-2004, path, /usr/bin/sh,attribute,100555,dba,5, subject,bscs,sgrp,9936,6785,0,return,success,0

header, 06-12-2004, path, /usr/bin/sh,
attribute,100555,tom,other,315,56,11,54,77,10,88,
subject,bscs,sgrp,9936,6785,0 0,return,success,0

I need to generate an output file like this (deleting fields between attribute and subject, please
note that number of those fields is variable):

header, 06-12-2004, path, /usr/bin/sh, subject,bscs,sgrp,9936,6785,0 0,return,success,0

header, 06-12-2004, path, /usr/bin/sh, subject,bscs,sgrp,9936,6785,0 0,return,success,0

header, 06-12-2004, path, /usr/bin/sh, subject,bscs,sgrp,9936,6785,0 0,return,success,0

Thanks a lot ,

CHAFIK
