Project Description

The target of this job is to create a .csv file containing two columns of data parsed from a text file, which is generated by a pdf-to-text converter. The data in the text-file is not delimited by a special character, but has an easy to recognize structure. The job should be possible with some regex coding.

Input file: text-file
Output file: .csv file (two columns)

made possible by a php-function named "function getboxsizes($pathtofile) {}"

Attached: [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view]
The pdf and html file contain data to be parsed. You can choose the file, which is easier to work with for the job. The first column in the pdf file contains a style number, followed by some data and the column Box/cs.. The style number and the Box/cs. columns are the columns to be parsed from the file. The text file just contains the data from the pdf, but without delimiters etc.

The job is to parse the style number, which always starts with a 10, 12, 15, 17 and the box/cs., which always is data in the format x/y or x/ y, while x and y are numbers smaller than 100. The style number just consists of numeric characters.
