Programming This forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

No, that is not the best approach. Your original question is just vague and as it is written in the rules: "We're happy to assist if you have specific questions or have hit a stumbling point, however. Let us know what you've already tried and what references you have used (including class notes, books, and searches) and we'll do our best to help. "
Or you can check it here:
Do not expect we will do the work for you (especially when we have no any idea what are you looking for)
And as it was already explained:
If you bothered to search, you should state what search terms you used, and what's wrong with the results you received.

This does several things:
1) it would demonstrate that you're not just being lazy.
2) it helps the next person using those same search terms to find an answer.
3) it allows responders to provide useful advice instead of repeating what you've already dismissed.
And you still missed it. And we still don't know what do you mean by "easy to parse".
Also would be nice to know if you tried any of the suggestions arrived and if they are acceptable for you (or why not).
Up to know there was no any exchange of questions and answers, you still have not provided useful details.

And finally, a different way of thinking: the quality of the answer is close to the quality of the original post, so it is not worth formulating vague questions

@All, lets keep the discussion on track.

@Skapen - At least one of the multiple methods already suggested in this thread should lead you to a solution. It would be helpful to everyone if you would tell which you have tried, and why they were not suitable, or what you prefer with some specificity. Others ask questions so they can better understand your use case and offer better suggestions. Help them help you.

Please review the Site FAQ for guidance in asking well formed questions. Especially visit the link from that page, How to Ask Questions the Smart Way for discussion of things to consider when asking others for help.
