in thread Reading entire file.

The sample is the input (the file that I want to read and cut into little pieces to output what the user wants to see.) The user inputs the tool name (Tool01,) and the date that they want to go back to (which is taken care of earlier in the script.) What the script does is gets rid of everything before the inputed date and keeps everything after. Then it is supposed to find every instance of the specified tool (Tool01) and print out any coments that have been written for that tool, stopping when it gets to the next tool, going to the next instance of that tool, printing untill it reaches the next tool.......The way it is set up the output to the reader should read:

Tool01 - ran good
Tool01 - Broke spindle temp transducer
waitin on replacement

once it is at that point, it is useable. Eventually I want to optomise the output to read:

Apr 23 0630 - ran good
Apr 24 2330 - Broke spindle temp transducer
waiting on replacement

I hope this clears up any confusion as to what I am asking, and what I am trying to do.
