Do you have any restrictions with regards to language?
There are a few things that come to mind; if this is absolutely
indexed how you stated, with no problems of extra blank lines etc
existing, you could use line to read in the lines one at a time, use
a simple grep/case statement to check whether the initial field
conforms to a specific string, and assign each string to a variable.
After six read ins, you have all the information you need and you
ouput them however you want.
