    Hi folks,

    .. etc

    The file I want to extract the data from has the following format, the data required is higlighted in red.

    If that record format is consistent then you could simply read until you match "time:". After that the next input is your floating-point value, then you can start over reading until a match for "time:" is found.
    My best code is written with the delete key.
