"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Python. PERL. Ruby. Lang-of-your-choice.

They're all the same.

So you can do the above in any language.

PERL provides much easier built in tech for converting awk + sed.

Python will require a bit more coding, as follows...

1) open your file or STDIN

2) loop through all records

3) Duplicate your pipeline by splitting your records on \s+ (awk + cut) then doing regular expression edits (sed)

4) print output to STDOUT

Very simple/common coding.

You might open a Gig + hire several people to provide various solutions.

You can learn a lot from long time coder's code implementations.
