Splitting a file into batches
Posted on 2012-03-15
I have a text file, extracted from a database. It is a set of instructions for a saw.
Note that column eight, beginning 169... changes from 169022 to 169023, etc.
Is there any way of breaking the file at each change of batch; creating a new file, and each file having the name of the batch it contains. So currently the file is called 169022. I need that to be JUST 169022, with different files for each subsequent batch.
I can from the database create a text file with a list of the batches if needs be.
Java is good - but will accept anything (c++, c#, vb, etc!)
