extract data from text file

Hi,

I have a large text file from which I need to extract lines as below:
time-range 02293404
 absolute end 23:59 19 September 2009
time-range 10May2010_SR405807
 absolute end 23:59 10 May 2010
time-range 11july2010
 absolute end 23:59 11 July 2010


The final output would be:
scheduler <name> start-date YYYY-MM-DD.HH:MM stop-date YYYY-MM-DD.HH:MM

For start-data we can use static date as: 2009-01-01.00:00
Stop-date would be the end date above.

Eg,
scheduler A start-date 2009-01-01.00:00 stop-date 2009-09-10.23:59
scheduler B start-date 2009-01-01.00:00 stop-date 2010-10-19.23:59
scheduler C start-date 2009-01-01.00:00 stop-date 2010-11-11.23:59

Thanks for all the help in advance.

Where do you get scheduler names from?  Your sample text file lines don't appear to include the info.

Sorry for the typo:
>> time-range 02293404
the word after time-range is the scheduler name; in original post the names are 02293404, 10May2010_SR405807, 11july2010.

Regards.
