The above information is an example of what I want to extract.
How can I extract this whole list of information from first sentences till the last sentences?

what is the source that you are extracting from?

a text file that includes all the log information.

I am using the read text file as a dependency for extracting the message

you extract it if you know the staring word and the ending word using regex.

in this case, may I know what is the difference between matches and is match activities and between these two activities, which one is prefer for my case

you should use matches in this case.

Hi, I am completely do not know how to extract this range of information using regex, May u help me further?

My starting word is “error”
and ending word is “Error occurred”

can i see the text file?

(^error(?s)((?:[^\n][\n]?)+)Error occurred$)

try this

It seems like I could not upload the text file due to I am a new user…

is there any alternate way by looking at the above information, I can manage to get the answer?
