3 n1 OK UseBIOS <Factory-Default> -- --

Re: [krishna_sicsr] Parsing Issue

What have you tried? Show us some code.

What can you tell us about the input values?
How does the values look like when they are not -- --?
What about the other values? Are the MAC Address always in < >? If not how is the syntax when there are a adress spesified? Seperated by colon?
Can there be a space in any of the other values?

Re: [krishna_sicsr] Parsing Issue

So you did not wan't to get any speed, just the "-- --"?
If you want the excact string "-- --", why don't you just say:
print "-- --" ;
