Getting Data In

How can I change splunk default parser and use my own way of re-arranging data?

let's say i have a file that I would like to input it to splunk.
but I want to have a better parser, a smarter one. how can I change the way splunk handles the incoming streams, not just taking each line by its own but applying my own code on how to arrange streams of data.

can you be more specific please?
Do you mean the support programs?
in other ways what I am trying to look for is a way to change the parser in splunk, so splitting income data happens in a different way than what splunk offers

Can you provide some examples of how the data may appear in the original file, and how that data should then be indexed by Splunk?

Have you looked into Modular Inputs?

Yes but I want to try and change how splunk arranges tuples from incoming streams and not only post each line as an event, for anonymity purposes. I want to specify how it cuts the incoming data into event and how to index them depending on several factors
