How to extract events from an input file ( xml format) that has no line breaks?

Path Finder

I have a log file that has contents similar to below. I would like the events separated based on the line break character. My props file has BREAKONLYBEFORE = and SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true but I continue to get the entire contents of the file as one event. Can you help me with splitting the contents of the below file into separate events using as the line break?

Your question is rather confusing. Your title states your data has no line breaks, yet you want us to help you break the data by linebreak?

It looks like your data is a bunch of "plane" objects? Do you want each plane in a single event? Then try this:

LINE_BREAKER = ()\<plane\>
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = FALSE

Thanks i was able to break the lines with LINE_BREAKER =()\<plane\>. Agreed my title was misleading. what i was trying to convey is that my data does not have any return character at the end of each line. By using the line_breaker , i was able to break up the rather long line of data into individual events.
