So I don't know how easy/hard this is. I have searched the internet high and low. What I need is to print a certain part of a line in a file. Here is an example line.
j1000010017 6790194100109201301092013THIS TO BE PRINTED M PW09-3PY248005BIK00
So what I need is to print 20 characters(no matter what they are) from the 38th character (THIS TO BE PRINTED ) and on the same line 3 characters from the 68th character (248).
The only what I can think of is the substr method but I've not used it before and am not sure of the syntax and whether I could pull to different locations on the same line.
