Text parser needed

I have large files that I need to validate but I need a text parser.  Anyone have a suggestion?

That's a pretty nebulous requirement.  What exactly are you trying to parse?  


A csv file?

A log file?

A query dump?


knowing a bit more about the output might help someone point you to a fair tool.

I'm afrad I don't know what you mean by 'text parser.' my suggestion would be to learn ruby or perl.

Manning publications has a good book on doing this sort of thing: Data Munging with perl.


Good luck!
