This is intended as a repository of scripts that clean-up logs. They rely on the assumption that you are logging everything, and that the logs of each character goes into a separate file.

Extracting Marked Logs
Extract scene log from raw log and print to screen:
awk '/SCENE#START/,/SCENE#END/' filename
Extract scene log from raw log into new file:
awk '/SCENE#START/,/SCENE#END/' filename > newfilename
This will give you everything that happened between when you set those markers.

curl --upload-file '<filename>' 'https://paste.c-net.org/'
