    Extracting metadata from game files.

    I have no idea what language would be used to go about doing this, or even where to start, so maybe somebody could push me in the right direction.

    I have a website where users can uploaded recorded games for Age of Mythology. I want to make it so that when a user uploads a recorded game, a script will extract some of the data from the file (including map type, player's names, etc).

    Here is an example file: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/786530/Littl...ip_Victory.rec

    Many websites already do this, so I know it's possible. Where do I start?

    I have no idea where to start with this... I have no experience coding with perl, so maybe if someone could show me to a guide about how to go about doing this and push me in the right direction
