I instead need output that looks like this: - [23/Sep/2009:14:18:41 -0700] "GET /" - [23/Sep/2009:14:18:51 -0700] "GET /"
Your requirement change over time, you should reformulate your request .. post a new sample data and new required output.

And don't forget to use [code] tags when you post sample data or required output.
