I have a bit of a unique string extraction problem for a text file format. On a Windows 7 environment using C#, I want to extract a string in each text file as long as it begins with "680000" for each file in a given directory.

Ideally, each file would be read for any line that begins with 68000. If the line begins with 68000, then it is saved to an output.txt file. Once all of the lines starting with 68000 are read and extracted into the output.txt, then the next file is analyzed. Until all the files in the given directory are read and the strings extracted.

What have you tried? It looks like you have the right basic strategy, so rewrite the above "Ideally..." paragraph with more (design) detail and then code it.
