I have a text file for ex:
ABCD#sh run

you need to concatenate lines based on their position after a pettern.

more or less

if line == ABCD#
then
   reset index
else
   array[index++]=array[index]" "line
endif

what language do …

Thank u Watael!
I will prefer shell and next in C
what will this reset index do?

what will this reset index do?

guess!
this is supposed to restore the index to the start value of an array's index

in bash (do you have bash?) arrays start with index 0.
