I have a log file which I need to parse, nothing fancy, just a few thousands of lines. I need to extract specific parts of it and do some calculations. Here's an example:
ID #567 10-10-2011 Blah-blah-blah-blah blah-blah-blah Approx 30.65$ ID #568 11-10-2011 Blah-blah-blah-blah blah-blah-blah Approx 7$
The task splits in 2 parts now:
- I need to sum values for a given range of dates/IDs
- (optionally) I need to plot a graph showing X as dates and Y as values
I'm familiar with Delphi since several years now, think I could write a parser and a grid there in several hours, but I'm looking for something different.
Could you suggest me a tool that would fit for the job and not that hard to grab?
