Khaoki is ended 2003/07/02/01:10:21
Khaoki is begun 2003/07/02 01:20:10

Khaoki is ended 2003/07/02/01:20:54
Khaoki is begun 2003/07/02 01:30:10

Khaoki is begun 2003/07/02 01:40:10
It’s a girl
A lady that needs asistance
She works

Khaoki is ended 2003/07/02/01:40:21
Khaoki is begun 2003/07/02 01:50:10

She enjoys computers
Khaoki is ended 2003/07/02/01:50:21

Thanks,the cron part I know.The problem is the script. I must extract from the first statement of a file.The process is from Khaoki is begun and it ends at the line where there is Khaoki is ended.The process executes every few minutes,for an example 10 minutes. And each process is unique, meaning that the lines in between begun and ended are not equal(Not the same amount).

I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve - Could you post an example of the end result you want to get?

You can use awk to split the file into "records", e.g.
awk 'BEGIN {RS="Khaoki is ended"} {print $0 "End of record\n"}' < logfile
