remove line spaces and add new line entry for array


Hi.

Is there a way to remove line break and extra spaces using awk or sed?


My input file is
Code:
[array([ 0.02845476,  0.02685638,  0.01360762,  0.01018389,  0.00817233,
        0.00769514,  0.00766023,  0.00871935,  0.00992978,  0.01282394,
        0.01833876,  0.03112197,  0.04668878,  0.03155843,  0.01698091,
        0.01226917,  0.00854671,  0.00798805,  0.00596485,  0.00646532,
        0.00658752,  0.00882022,  0.01276575,  0.03148277,  0.03787438,
        0.58244297]), 
array([ 0.035     ,  0.03807317,  0.01169512,  0.00759146,  0.00479878,
        0.00514634,  0.0037378 ,  0.00606707,  0.00528049,  0.00892683,
        0.00631707,  0.01397561,  0.01756098,  0.0159939 ,  0.00477439,
        0.00714024,  0.00343293,  0.00530488,  0.00282927,  0.00380488,
        0.00390854,  0.00551829,  0.00696951,  0.03689634,  0.0427439 ,
        0.6965122 ]),
 array([ 0.04180773,  0.037372  ,  0.01278474,  0.0072884 ,  0.00573145,
        0.00536573,  0.0049791 ,  0.00514629,  0.0049373 ,  0.00582027,
        0.00749216,  0.00933124,  0.01535005,  0.01035528,  0.00504702,
        0.00487983,  0.00304598,  0.00344828,  0.00279519,  0.00337513,
        0.00361024,  0.00460293,  0.00856844,  0.0260815 ,  0.10672414,
        0.65405956]), 
array([ 0.03015278,  0.02738889,  0.0125    ,  0.00875   ,  0.00736806,
        0.00672917,  0.00763889,  0.01044444,  0.01178472,  0.01470139,
        0.02020833,  0.03288194,  0.05940278,  0.03489583,  0.01829167,
        0.01255556,  0.00811111,  0.00670139,  0.00543056,  0.00570139,
        0.00616667,  0.00821528,  0.01138889,  0.02573611,  0.03044444,
        0.57640972]),
And my expected output is:

Sounds like a good little problem. What have you done in an attempt to solve this and where are you stuck?
