Example

A source document has the following structure:
Ron Lehrer && 547329876:27 Evelyn Kern && 9875424: 53
Each line of the document is a record containing a person's name, ID number, and age. The fields are separated by the symbols
&&
and
:
. The fields contain multiple space characters at random locations.
One way to parse this document is by using
CustomFormat
. In the
delimiters
property of the format, assign a
DelimiterHierarchy
containing the symbols:
newline && :
In the
default_transformers
property, assign the
HtmlProcessor
, which removes the extra spaces from the output.
