i have a log file and the only thing i need from it to generate a report is: discharge date & reason for discharge. the each block starts with sentence
Log-Date: mm/dd/yyyy.

in situation A, the result would be:
Discharge Date: 10/15/2012
Reason: Discharged to home or self-care (routine discharge).

and in situation B, the result would be:
Discharge Date: 10/15/2013
Reason: Discharged to home or self-care (routine discharge).
Discharge Date: 09/15/2012
Reason: Discharged to hospital.

I can't help with the CF code, but I can provide a regex pattern:

Discharge Date:(\d\d?/\d\d?/\d{4})\s*Reason for Discharge:\d* - ((?:(?!Log-Date:).)*)

The above pattern should capture your two values of interest into capturing groups, which hopefully you will know how to use with CF!
