I am really new to python and have used it to carry out some simple tasks but I would like to get a script working that will edit a text file for me. I want to strip out all the things I dont need and jsut leave what I do.
For instance I have a file called file.txt that looks as follows:
--- LOG Start: 06/07/2004 12:43:54
--- Information on log file
Now this is the format of what I have the log file in. I have removed any information that is sensitive but each line does begin with the same word_ like that. What I would like to have is a script that I can run against file.txt and keep just the numbers so it would output a new file that contained just:
So as you see I would get rid of the first two lines totally and then after taht keep just the numbers. I am still looking on the python tutorials but I thought this might be worth getting some help here. Thanks for your time,
