...and your question is?

Generally, you won't find much help unless you ask specific, focused questions. We expect you to show some effort, and TRY to do it your self. Post your actual code. Tell us what works and what doesn't work (and why you expected it to do).

Explain in detail what the problem is you are trying to solve, and how you are trying to solve it.

I would also suggest you stop coding, and sit down with some paper and pencils and work through how YOU would do this, if you were trying to do it by hand. What SPECIFICALLY constitutes a title, a description, and a link? Your instructions should be detailed enough that a child could follow them and not have any questions.

If you see first Line of the String

Title abu dhabi ipl season 7 Description The ground located in Abu Dhabi is one of the three IPL venues in UAE this season Link http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/ipl-2014-venues-sheikh-zayed-stadium-indian-premier-league-7/1/355264.html


Anything that is between word Title and Description is Title
Anything that comes between Description and Link is Description
And Anything that comes from Link and next Title is Link

I want to extract these titles,descriptions and links and store them in there respective arrays or lists.

How I can do that , what regex can do that ?

Slow down there, partner.

if you are here in your analysis, and you're already asking "how do I use this specific technology to accomplish my goal", then you are NOT done analyzing the problem. You are effectively saying "How do I use some pliers to build a house?"

You may indeed need pliers to build a house - but you may not. You need to understand everything, and that takes time, your brain, and usually a lot of paper, pencils and erasing.

One thing that I immediately notice wrong with this:

And Anything that comes from Link and next Title is Link

is that you will NEVER get the last link, since there is NEVER the word "TITLE" after it.

You also have issues if the description has the word "link" in it. A move about golf may indeed refer to "the Links". A movie about royalty may describe someone being granted a Title. How do you plan on handling these situation?
