Extract specific lines from a VERY large text file
I use Proshow to create slide shows from photograpgs. The file that Proshow creates is a just plain text file but very large. The one I am working on at the moment has about 1.2 million line of text a small part is shown below
cell.images.image=image/Flower 9283p copy.jpg
cell.images.name=Flower 9283p copy
What I would like to be able to do is to extract a list of all the images files used in their correct order. The lines I want all have this format
where xxxxxxx is the actual file name as above and will vary as will ###. In all this show used 356 images. I was looking at how to isolate all lines containing the string .image=image/ and write them to a new file or delete all the lines that do not contain this string.
So two questions
How can I extract all 356 lines from this master file and remove the rest
Wouldl the extraction routine run in a reasonable time given the size of the original file.
Any help suggestions as to how to go about this would be most welcome.
Sorry to have asked I have just found it is very easy to do with the search all function and then cut and paste the results
