I have a series of text files in a directory, serially numbered, *Part 1*, Part 2, Part 3 ... These are actually HTML files, but I can save them as text files also. One such file, Part 4, is attached herewith. (There is '3' at the begining of the title, but it is a part of the title. It is not the serial number. '3' occurs in every file in the directory.) The structure of all these files is exactly the same. The region of interest always occurs from line 26 to line 40.
I wish to save all the vernacular text from line 26 to line 40 in a separate text file, and the words in the bracket immediately following these vernacular words in another separate text file. The vernacular text always occurs after the serial number, followed by fullstop, followed by space, followed by asterix. The words following this vernacular text always occur within open and closed brackets after space preceded by the vernacular text.
How to take these in two separate text files for all of the html files in the directory at once?
