Filter .unl file

Specs: Windows XP
I have several big .unl file that have 48 columns. From these, I only need 5 of them -- columns 6,7,14,18,31.
Is there a way I can automate this and putting it in a new txt file? Hope it could be via a dos script or something.
Thanks!

If you believe the info here:

http://filext.com/file-extension/UNL

it's a binary file which pretty much leaves out any BATCH solution. Maybe one of the resident rocket scientists will do it in perl or whatever.

if perchance the file is not binary, pls post the file's description/format. (delimiters, newline char.s, etc.)

The extension names of my file is .unl but when I can open it using notepad. If there would be a problem in any proposed script, I will just batch rename the extension to .txt

@nbrane
Delimiter in the file is "|"

Thanks!

"but when I can open it using notepad. "

... what?

I can rename JPGs BMPs. Doesn't help; just confuses things.


It's either binary or it ain't; not much grey area there.

You can:

copy my.unl con

If you get happy faces, box corners and other assorted caca, it ain't text.
