2 text converting script..

1. First I need a script that creates a new text file in this format:

jonas@home.se:Dear subscriber
96bf-mj@aleholm.savsjo.se:Dear subscriber
96bf-sj@aleholm.savsjo.se:Dear subscriber
96bf-ss@aleholm.savsjo.se:Dear subscriber
BRRA@hotmail.com:Dear subscriber

From this format:

Bjorn.nilsson@n.lrf.se
Carola.Fagerwall@itutb.kiruna.se
EKI7029@jack.got.kth.se
EKI7031@jack.got.kth.se
ERAGOKU@gaera.ericsson.se
Helen.Akerstrom@itutb.kiruna.se

2. The second script convert a file in this format:

jonas@home.se:Dear subscriber
96bf-mj@aleholm.savsjo.se:My name2
96bf-sj@aleholm.savsjo.se:John doe
96bf-ss@aleholm.savsjo.se:my name

to this format:

[Begin]
&email=jonas@home.se&name=Dear subscriber
&email=96bf-mj@aleholm.savsjo.se&name=My name2
&email=96bf-sj@aleholm.savsjo.se&name=John doe

Thanks in Advance!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First Script
-----------------------------------------------------------

#!/usr/local/bin/tclsh

if {$argc !=2} {
      error "Usage: firstscript infileName Outfilename"
}

set fin [open [lindex $argv 0] r]
set fout [open [lindex $argv 1] w]
set a :Dear Subscriber

while {[gets $fin line] >= 0} {
      set line $line$a
      puts $fout $line
}
close $fout
close $fin

-------------------------------------------------------------

Second Script

-------------------------------------------------------------
#!/usr/local/bin/tclsh

if {$argc !=2} {
      error "Usage: firstscript infileName Outfilename"
}

set fin [open [lindex $argv 0] r]
set fout [open [lindex $argv 1] w]
set a \&email\=
set b \&name\=

while {[gets $fin line] >= 0} {
      regsub -all : $line \n line
      set c [lindex $line 0]
      set d [lindex $line 1]
      set line $a$c$b$d
      puts $fout $line
}
close $fout
close $fin

Both of these scripts are written in TCL.  Hope they help.

Just one small change to the above code
in the first script
the line

set a :Dear Subscriber

should read

set a ":Dear Subscriber"


Also, the first line of both scripts contains the path
to your TCL program.  It may not be what wrote above

Good luck

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

Just a little thing in the second script.. When handling raws like:
jonas@home.se:Dear subscriber

It reurns:
&email=jonas@home.se&name=Dear

It should be like:
&email=jonas@home.se&name=Dear subscriber

Any idears?

Increased the points just as a little bonus ;-)

One more thing with the second script.. In the begining
of the result there must be a "[Begin]" (see the begining)here is a example:

[Begin]
&email=jonas@home.se&name=Dear subscriber
&email=96bf-mj@aleholm.savsjo.se&name=My name2
&email=96bf-sj@aleholm.savsjo.se&name=John doe


Adjusted the points a bit coz of my lazyness..
