  2. Hi Did,

    I have a very trivial project in mind. I think it’s very simple (or I hope so), but I really can’t figure it out, or at least, I am not able to determine the simplest way to do it.

    I thought about Python3 and Sqlite3, but maybe it is not the more straightforward way.

    So, what is my idea… I want to take some Cisco ASA connections logs and translate them in a human readable form.

    Say, for example, the following string: ->

    should be translated to:


    Very easy, isn’t it? Not for me unfortunately 😪

    Sources and destinations ip addressess are all well known, so I can associate every ip address with its human-readable string; they are thousands, so I would create something like a dictionary (excel? sql db? python dictionary? what else?)

    Long story short, I don’t want a solution, just your thoughts about what language and/or data structure you would think of. I can’t really get it, even if I am a grep/sed/awk fan!

    Thank you very much for your attention and sorry for having stolen a bit of your precious time.

    Have a good 2021🍾 😉
