Last Modified: 2019-12-25
I have a output file like below and i'd like to get some information from it.

How is it possible to get information are there any expert can help me to parse it?

I'd like to run one function and get some information like; file version, version number, version description, version build like single output.

3.0, 20180100, " ", 76

!file.version=3.0! Removing this line will make the file unreadable

! Program Version Information
version.number = 20180100
version.desc   = ''
version.build  = 76

!  Some Other Blocks
