Jen Underwood discusses a tool which helps provide structure to text documents:

Although there are a variety of ways to extract unstructured data from files, one tried-and-true, fast and simple approach is to use Datawatch Monarch. Years ago I used this tool when building Department of Defense digital contract reporting projects.

With the latest version of Monarch Auto Define, that process is intelligently automated today.

Looks like an interesting tool.
