I need a text parsing GURU. Here's the deal, I am able to download PDF files that are computer simulated results for Greyhound Dog Racing. I am then able to convert the PDF's to Text files. I need to parse out of the text files just the predicted results for the races and put those in to a new text file. I have included examples of both the PDF files and the converted Text Files. I have also included a text file that is the way I would like the parsed content to be displayed.
I have tried to do this myself using VBScript, but I couldn't quite get it to work. From what I know of Perl it is more suited to this type of task, however, it doesn't really matter to me which language is used as long as the results are the same. Can anyone help me with this? I realize that I probably haven't done the greatest job explaining this, but once you have a look at the pdfs and the text files, I can answer any questions that you might have and am available via email or chat anytime.
