Hi,
I have a long text, which tells me which files from a database were downloaded and which ones failed. The pattern is as follows (at the end of this post). Wrote a tiny program, but still is raw. I want to find term "ERROR" and go 5 lines above and get the name with suffix XPT, in this first case DRXIFF_F.XPT, but it changes in other cases to some other name with suffix XPT. Thanks, Aldi

# reading errors from a file txt
import re
with open('nohup.out', 'r') as fh:
  lines = fh.readlines()
  for line in lines:
      m1 = re.search("XPT", line)
      m2 = re.search('ERROR', line)
      if m1:
        print(line)
      if m2:
        print(line)
