[Tutor] Learning to extract information from ABAQUS .dat and .rpt files using Python

Hello folks,

This is something that must have been asked several times. I want to post
process data obtained after running a FEM in ABAQUS. The requested results
are usually printed to the .dat file or .rpt file. I would like to learn how
to extract the information that I need (i.e. displacements and stresses at
the nodes) from this file using Python. The fact is that I am kind of new at
ABAQUS and have zero knowledge about Python. Therefore, any help with
websites, examples, tutorials, etc. would be appreciated.

Thank you!
