Time Event
Parsing text files
I have a situation where I have some log files, and they need to be parsed. These files are updated pretty regularly. Let's say they're /var/log/messages.

Someone recommended that I create a schema and basically connect to the files via odbc. That way users could create a Crystal reports report by connecting to the ODBC connection. Is that how that works? Can someone point me some reference that does similar? Maybe a walkthrough for Ubuntu?
