Arrow Script to extract the fields in the agiml tags

Dear all,

please see the logs shown below:

12-12 08:47:37.545 DBG AGIML SERVER[1]..............................write() (<agiml><header><responsetype>TOPUP</responsetype></header><response><auditfields/><resultcode>999</resultcode>


Now i want to write a script which will extract the fields like this


these are the fields shown in the different tags.

And one thing more the fields between the tag <agiml>............</agiml>,

it is taking it a single column of log.

example less file | grep "9773575450"

will display the whole line.

If you want that <xxx> disappear and </xxxx> be replaced with ",", you can use:

sed -r "s/<\w+>//g;s/<\/\w+>/,/g"

echo "<data1>field n1</dat1><data2>field n2</data2>" | sed -r "s/<\w+>//g;s/<\/\w+>/,/g"

will display:
field n1,field n2,

I don't know if this is what you look for....
