Getting Data In

parse fields with multiple delimiters

New Member

I am using HUNK 6.1.1. I have the data in the below format in a csv file,

Description= Small Focus

EventID= 023

Index: 95

TimeStamp: 2013-07-03T04:14:38

AdditionalInfo= [FREE_TEXT] Last update : 11-07-13 00:02:49 Reset date : 10-05-09 00:31:26 exposure time : 30.316 s exposure counter : 1181.0

I have loaded the data from my HDFS location by creating a simple provider and index using csv loader, but i want to further parse the "AdditionInfo" field to extract the field-values (Last update,Reset date,exposure time & exposure counter) from it. The "AdditionalInfo" Column doesnt have a spefic delimiter.

How can I further parse the "AdditionalInfo" field so that I can use the field-values in it to generate some aggregates on these?
