remove everything before/after certain phrase

Post by ogmb » Wed Oct 22, 2014 8:03 pm

self explanatory really. i got:

blah blah blah some text blah blah blah

need to get rid of all the "blahs"
those "blahs" are irregular expressions
so is "some text" BTW

thanks in advance!

Sorry If I'm telling you, but if the file is not so big, try to find whatever it be in common before and after of you want.
Then put a delimeter of -> (TAB) before and after consequently and save it. Then open it in the Excell, probably what you want will be in a separate column. Just copy it and save in the text format you want. I use to do this with Notepad++.
"ALERT": If the text forma of your file is in any than ANSI code, the Excell will change it. So, I use to backup first, then convert to ANSI, then open with Excell, copy and save in the Notepad++. Then its ease to convert back again to UTF-8, UTF-*(Without BOM)...and so on.
Hope it Helps.
I'm looking for a program that find just the contents of the string and not the whole line or paragraph.
If you come across with something like that, please le me know.
