i want to extract out the data (number) from 'geometry step' and 'total energy' in form of list to PlotList[] it. this is the Log file data log

Abstract the Total Energy for every Geometry step in the form of a list, list={{1,TE1},{2,TE2},...,{n,TEn}}

data = Import[
log", "Table"];
list = Last /@ # & /@ 
Cases[data, {"**", "Geometry", "step:", _?NumericQ} | {"Total", 
  "Energy:", _?NumericQ}], 2]

  • $\begingroup$ Beat me to it! You could remove the Last /@ # & /@ if you replace the pattern with {"**", "Geometry", "step:", a_?NumericQ} | {"Total", "Energy:", a_?NumericQ} :> a] $\endgroup$ – Jason B. May 6 '16 at 7:48
  • $\begingroup$ @JasonB great point! $\endgroup$ – happy fish May 6 '16 at 7:49
