Programming challenge: update
Towards the end of last month I wrote a post about how I wanted to come up with something that would reformat a log file for me into a more readable format.
It’s taken a while, but today I have that solution. I moved on from shell scripts to python, and on the way to figuring out my solution I learned about git and version control, about logging and debugging, about opening and working with files, control flow, concatenation… all sorts of good stuff.
The code reformats my log into a readable text file, but my next step will be to have it put that information into an excel spreadsheet — then I can sort the columns into whatever order I want.
I’m really enjoying using python and will be on the lookout for more interesting projects that I can do with it.
