PHP Question

Parse program output in PHP

I have a program we use called HDClone, and I am trying to parse it's output from drive listings to use in another program for automation.

HDClone produces the following output:

HDClone 6 Enterprise Edition
Serial: 1111111111

Miray Software AG
Gaissacher Str. 18
81371 Munich
Germany

Detecting drives.
drv:0 Name: WDC WD40EZRZ-00WN9B0 (4,000,754 MB)
Serial: WD-WCC4E0ESU7YK
Port: 0/1/1/0
[ -, M:, X: ]
To specify this drive, use the following parameters:
-srcdrv:/-dstdrv:0
-srcdrvn:/-dstdrvn:"WDC WD40EZRZ-00WN9B0"
-srcdrvn:/-dstdrvn:"WDC WD40EZRZ-00WN9B0WD-WCC4E0ESU7YK"
-srvdrvp:/-dstdrvp:0/1/1/0

drv:1 Name: ST2000DM001-1CH164 (2,000,399 MB)
Serial: S1E1GA0V
Port: 0/1/1/1
[ S:, T: ]
To specify this drive, use the following parameters:
-srcdrv:/-dstdrv:1
-srcdrvn:/-dstdrvn:ST2000DM001-1CH164
-srcdrvn:/-dstdrvn:ST2000DM001-1CH164S1E1GA0V
-srvdrvp:/-dstdrvp:0/1/1/1

drv:2 Name: ST2000DM001-1CH164 (2,000,399 MB)
Serial: S1E1GC0Z
Port: 0/0/0/1
[ B:, P: ]
To specify this drive, use the following parameters:
-srcdrv:/-dstdrv:2
-srcdrvn:/-dstdrvn:ST2000DM001-1CH164
-srcdrvn:/-dstdrvn:ST2000DM001-1CH164S1E1GC0Z
-srvdrvp:/-dstdrvp:0/0/0/1

drv:3 Name: WDC WD10EADS-11M2B2 (1,000,205 MB)
Serial: WD-WCAV5D430071
Port: 0/0/2/0
[ -, V: ]
To specify this drive, use the following parameters:
-srcdrv:/-dstdrv:3
-srcdrvn:/-dstdrvn:"WDC WD10EADS-11M2B2"
-srcdrvn:/-dstdrvn:"WDC WD10EADS-11M2B2WD-WCAV5D430071"

[ C: ]
To specify this drive, use the following parameters:
-srcdrv:/-dstdrv:4

-srcdrvn:/-dstdrvn:"KINGSTON SMS200S360G50026B72440A6EE7"
-srvdrvp:/-dstdrvp:0/1/3/0


What I need to produce is a listing like:

drv:0,[-,M:,X:]
drv:1,[S:,T:]
drv:2,[B:,P:]
drv:3,[-,V:]
drv:4,[C:]


Anyone have any ideas how to achieve this?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Answer

If that format is consistent you should be able to run something like:

/^(drv:\d+)(?:[\s\S]+?(?:Name|Serial|Port):.*$){3}\n\h*(\[[^\]]+?])/m
