I have a file which has repetetive entries like this
Its a guestbook which i am porting to a mySQL based solution. The 'message' Can be multiple lines, all others are single line.
I would like to convert this to something more useful, like a single line entry:
Note that all variables can contain pretty much any characters (including international ones). Also note that i want the start/stop sigs stripped.
Someone up for this?
(platform is unix if that makes a diff)
