Hello everyone,

My file had 12 columns, I want those lines in my file where numbers in columns 9 and 10 includes digit "101".

For example : i am giving 3 lines of my file: ( columns to focus are colored green).

NM013123 14-74726235 100.00 18 0 0 11 28 141 100 0.080 36.2
NM013123 14-74726339 100.00 18 0 0 11 28 38 21 0.080 36.2
NM013123 14-74726235 100.00 18 0 0 11 28 80 124 0.080 36.2

Result file should have lines:
NM013123 14-74726235 100.00 18 0 0 11 28 141 100 0.080 36.2
NM013123 14-74726235 100.00 18 0 0 11 28 80 124 0.080 36.2

because "101" lies between 141 and 100
& between 80 and 124.

please help me...

Many Thanks in advance..

Here's what I would do:

-First, get a linelist of your input file. (ex yourfile.read().split('\n'))
-Then, create a output linelist (ex output_list = [])
-Fill it up! (see below)

for line in linelist:
    column_list = line.split('\t') #splits the line into columns
    compare_list = [int(column_list[8]),int(column_list[9])]
    compare_list.sort() #the smallest value is now first
    if 101 in range(compare_list[0],compare_list[1]):
        output_list.append(line) #101 is between those two numbers, save the line!

Then, write your output list to your new file.

You could also turn the above code into a function to return the line if 101 is between the values, or false if not, make a class that does everthing, etc etc but the functionality should be as simple as that.

EDIT: I just tested this, line.split(' ') doesn't return the column_list. My bad. It's actually line.split('\t') which says split on the tab. Code has been updated. Hope this works for you!
