    need advice

    Hello i need some advice here to write my program in c language.
    Let say my filename is : log.txt

    My file "log.txt" contains data like this:

    !!Begin
    Source bserver:bmp_spool:the, Job 80c481ac001f6b07, Inst 80c481ac001f6b07
    Title BP Page 003 Date 070402 Black 3
    Action Finished Transmit, Ok Date Fri Apr 5 00:02:05 SGT 2002
    (2) Source Queue = Ajil_Tabloid
    (1) Destination = ajil:ajil1:bmp_spool:the
    (3) Dest Queue = Futuro Tabloid
    Transmitting to ajil:ajil1:bmp_spool:the
    !!End
    !!Begin
    Source bserver:bmp_spool:the, Job 80c481ac001f6b0f, Inst 80c481ac001f6b0f
    Title BP Page 004 Date 070402 Cyan 4
    Action Started Transmit, Ok Date Fri Apr 5 00:02:05 SGT 2002
    (2) Source Queue = Ajil_Tabloid
    (1) Destination = ajil:ajil1:bmp_spool:the
    (3) Dest Queue = Futuro Tabloid
    Transmitting to ajil:ajil1:bmp_spool:the
    !!End
    !!Begin
    Source bserver:bmp_spool:the, Job 80c481ac001f6b3d, Inst 80c481ac001f6b63
    Title BP Page 010 Date 070402 Magenta 10
    Action Finished Transmit, Ok Date Fri Apr 5 00:02:12 SGT 2002
    (2) Source Queue = Prai_Tabloid
    (1) Destination = prairai1:bmp_spool:the
    (3) Dest Queue = Futuro Tabloid
    Transmitting to prairai1:bmp_spool:the
    !!End

    Title :BP Page 003 Date 070402 Black 3
    Action: Finished Transmit
    Time: 5 00:02:05

    Read the file, use strcmp() to check for the values you want, and output them in the format you want.

    The file looks like it is formatted in a logical manner. You can simply write a program to test your input and only take what you want. Or assume that the file is formatted correctly and use that formatting to parse each line. Such as with getline and sscanf:

    Input:
    Action Finished Transmit, Ok Date Fri Apr 5 00:02:05 SGT 2002

    Code:
    getline ( INFILE, buffer );
    sscanf ( buffer, "%*s %[^,] %*[^0123456789] %10c", actionString, timeString );
    cout<< actionString <<"\n"<< timeString <<"\n";

    Output:
    Finished Transmit
    5 00:02:05
