I had a simple request to get info from our SAP production system, to compare 2 files of cost center text and output the differences in the text for FY 2011. How do I do it in REBOL?
The record format for file 1 is fixed; example
"201185241008524100ENVIR SERVICES EXECUTIVE     1000SP01A2" and
201185242118524211PERMIT SUPPORT SERVICES DIV 1000SP01A2"
The record format for file 2 is :"852421120100701BUD DEV-HAZ WASZTE SITE CLEANUP"
I need to read the file top get only those with the first 4 of "2011" and the last 2 of "A2".
Then I need to compare user the next 7 characters, which is the cost center, and match with another file to compare the text and output differences.
I think I've got how to read the file and search thru another file for matches, but how do I split/parse file 1 into segments I can use?
I don't seem to "get it." Thanks!!

Sorry about the last post, it should have been somewhere other than the welcome page!
I've been reading vpaviu's REBOL Essentials this weekend and also looking thru Chap 6 -Series and Chap 15 Parsing.    
So when I saw this link in my inbox this morning, I took this to be a sign, thus my excitement.    
Again sorry for the post!

Nick, yours was the first tutorial I read and it is what got me interested in REBOL.    
Good Work!

I was out of town for a few days... just got back, and am checking out this forum. Clean and simple.

this web forum just proves why we don't need altme. it's very fast and simple. Nothing to install on your machine, and accessible worldwide. That's what a forum should be...just like the rebol philosophy (fight against complexity).
wished they had walked the talk with Altme.
