Thanks! That helped a lot! Now, lets say that I just want to display
one or just a few of the items and not the whole line. For example,
the text file contains the following:
red blue yello
green purple brown
If the program searches for blue, i just want it to print blue, not the
whole line. If i ask it to find blue and brown, i just want it to
return those two values.
