Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: Slackware (mainly) and then a lot of others...
I relly did not undertastand what you are trying to say here. Is anyone able to see the images that the OP is posted?
If you let us know what exactly you see on the computer we can help you.
Do not worry we all start at some point and thoes are the times (mostly) when we do not have an idea of what we are doing.
Not just Grep, maybe you need to get off those recreational chemicals you are offering me. How can Grep parse files. I said it would be included in the code, not gona give the whole code. He won't learn anything... I could be wrong but that's the linux learning curve.
i hate to just give the answer like this but given that he stated hes just learning i feel like i could be helping by showing an example...
theres probably a shorter way to do this but using sed is your best bet and this is what i came up with...
sed 's/File\: //g' *INFILENAME* | sed 's/Resolution\: //g' | sed 'N;s/\n/ /g' > *OUTFILENAME*
edit: posted this w/o refreshing...seems hes getting close and i highly encourage to find an alternate way to get the same result, im sure there is plenty
and if not then read some sed tutorials and get a good understanding of the syntax
