Hi,

The following is a GPS string:
$GPGGA,092204.999,4250.5589,S,14718.5084,E,1,12,24.4,89.6,M,,,0000*1F $GPGSA,093345.679,4234.7899,N,11344.2567,W,3,02,24.5,1000.23,M,,,0000*1F $GPGSV,044584.936,1276.5539,N,88734.1543,E,2,04,33.5,600.323,M,,,*00 $GPRMC,199304.973,3248.7780,N,11355.7832,W,1,06,02.2,25722.5,M,,,*00 $GPVTG,066487.954,4572.0089,S,45572.3345,W,3,09,15.0,35000.00,M,,,*1F

I want to extract the line following and including $GPGGAand $GPRMC.The GPS string length is variable.Please let me know how to do this and store each of them into a single string or 2 separate strings.

thanks in advance.

Something like this?

gpsstring='''the string you have just mentioned'''
gpgaline=None
gprmcline=None
for line in gpsstring:
    if line.startswith('$GPGGA,'):
         gpgaline=line
