lire & logethy are an option.
but if you want to go on your own I believe awk, grep, sort are extremely
extremely extremely (yes 3 times !) powerfulI tools, so giving them up is a
bad decision I guess either talking about thier speed or what they would
allow you to do in few lines of code. so what I would advice is to write
a python program that uses them thru subprocess module, this way you have
the best of both worlds, finaly you should set up some sort of database to
hold your data & to have a real-time view of whats going on.
so what modules you need ? :
subprocess : running awk & grep.
csv : for loading data from the resulting files.
MySQLdb : to connect to mysql db
