awk/sed line parsing

I'm new to shell programming, but I think I learn best by following an example. I'm trying to cook up an awk/sed script, but I obviously lack the required syntax skills to achieve it. The output that I get from running my ksh script looks like this:

Quote:
CHANGED FILES:
1. foo/bar.txt
2. foo/bar1.txt

NEW FILES:
1.foo/bar1.txt

DIRECTORIES:
1. foo/
I need to search each numbered line for certain keywords. If I have no match, then simply continue with the rest of my script. If there are matches, then I want to be able to capture matched lines (to a temp file?) then report the matched lines as the command's output ('cat' temp file?) and exit my script. Appreciate any suggestions.

A bit more details of my framework:

Code:
( ksh myscript.ksh 2>&1 ) | tee -a $TEMP_LOG
            perl -ne "exit 1 if ( \
                /keyword1/ || \
                /keyword2/ || \
                /keyword3/ \
            );" $TEMP_LOG
            if [ $? -eq 1 ]
            then
                echo ""
                echo "Error while running myscript.sh!"
                EXITCODE=1
            else
                echo "Done running myscript.sh."
            fi
            rm -f $TEMP_LOG

So I basically want to be able to capture the keywords from the output of another command shown above and then error out along with reporting the lines with found keywords.

You should code the error handling and output generation directly inside myscript.ksh insead of creating another script that parse its output afterward.

Agreed. I will incorporate my error checking within myscript.sh. Meanwhile any suggestions on writing the awk code to filter out the keywords? In the output example above I want to be able to read between the CHANGED FILES: line and the next blank line. Then again between the NEW FILES: line and the next blank line, etc.

Give more clue about how does your initial input file look like (upload it if necessary), and how should the output look like.

This is the output of a tool command that I run :

Quote:
CHANGED FILES:
1. foo/bar.txt
2. foo/bar1.txt

NEW FILES:
1.foo/bar1.txt

DIRECTORIES:
1. foo/
The flow should be like this: I run an external tool command and I parse its output for certain keywords. If there's a match of keywords, then I want to spit out a message saying that the script cannot proceed any further due to the keyword matches and then spit out the matched lines. If there are no matches, however, then I want my external script to continue on.
I want to be able to parse the output like the one above and catch certain words, such as 'bar.txt' or 'foo/'. If I do have the matches, I'd like to say something like this:

Your request cannot proceed because you had the following critical changes:

... then list the captured matches as a whole line ...

Is "grep" not enough for your requirement?

I need to capture and list each line that contains a matching keyword. I think grep will handle only one case form the output, no?
