if the file looks like this and I need to parse out the last two occurances of the search string, skip three lines in each and then only print the lines of data that have 0.150 in the first field and -45.00 in the third field, what would I add?

<smartass>"Code to do that" seems like an obvious answer.</smartass>

Honestly though, there is code in my example above that demonstrates splitting into fields and checking for equality isn't a very obscure operation. Try it yourself and if you can't figure it out, show us your code that doesn't work. You'll get less sarcastic answers if you demonstrate that you've made a little effort.
