This is the data you need to look at.
X is the position in the printed list of the time information. If you can
not determine the correct X value by inspection of the list having been
told which element it should be, then you need to go back to the python
documentation and read about the list data object and how elements within
the list are referenced. Once you understand from the documentation how
to reference the list elements, you will be able to determine by
inspection of the above list the correct value for X.
Y is the position of the hours element within the time information when
that information is further split using the ':' separator. You may need
to refer to the documentation for the split() method of the string data
object. Once you understand from the documentation how the string.split()
function creates a list, and how to reference the list elements (as
above), you will be able to determine by inspection the correct value for
This is fundamental python knowledge, and you must discover it in the
documentation and understand it. You will then be able to determine the
correct values for X and Y.
Note that the code I posted may need the addition of a line something
if line.startswith("From "):
in a relevant position, as well as additional indenting to take account
of that addition.
