Search for words and change format

Posted 06 February 2013 - 03:06 PM

So basically i have a file with a lot of names and ages and other unnecessary stuff with this kind of format:

Name: Example
Age: 20
Hobbies: Blahblah
Other stuff: jashdjahsdj

And i want to grab the name and the age of every single person in the file and reformat it to something like this:

Name-Age

I'm really new to this so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advanced :rolleyes:

It should be a pretty simple use of streamreader and streamwriter.

Using stream reader open up the file for your source.. in a while loop read each line.. if it starts with name then use the string namespace's "substring" to get the value.. store that in a temp variable.. and then look for 'age'.. do the same sort of substring to get that value.. then use streamwriter to append those two values into another file.
