Below is some code that will search for the starting and ending *--- lines in
a specified file and print the whole file with the *--- part being removed.
Hope thats a start,
f = file("somefile.c", "r")
text = f.read()
m = re.search("\*-*.*\*-*\n", text, re.DOTALL)
if not m:
print "nothing found"
print text[:m.start(0)] + text[m.end(0):]
